Making it Through with Large Wheel Mobility Scooters
Forget getting stuck at home because you are empowered with your mobility scooter to help yourself cope with limitations, overcome challenges, and build a rewarding life. Living life with a disability is not easy, but it does not have to be a tragedy. And you are not alone; millions have been through this and found ways not just survive but thrive. If they can, why not you?
Mobility scooters are ideal for moving forward, giving a meaning to life, and finding new goals. Use your scooter to move around the city on workdays or pack it in your car to take to a distant spot or any popular destination on weekends. When you are covering any short distances like the nearest supermarket or a park, the best means of transport is often a mobility scooter. Most riders find 4-wheel mobility scooter with large wheels to be the best for commuting.
“I’m a big guy- Is there a mobility scooter for me”. Well, Yes!
Thanks to the surging demand of 4-wheel mobility scooters. Manufacturers now make mobility scooters for all body types, no matter how heavy you are. You can adjust the handlebars up or down to set the height that is right for you. The large wheel mobility scooters come equipped with reinforced suspension and higher ground clearance, and these are ideal for people looking to ride them on uneven pavements, fields and hills.
Powerful, heavy-duty scooters can hold up a larger weight capacity and are often recommended for larger individuals who require the extra support to ensure their safety. Although they can be a bit more, heavy-duty mobility scooters are the preferred choice of individuals looking for versatility, sturdy build, and trendy design. So, if you’re planning on doing lots of high-impact riding, make sure you get a good heavy-duty 4-wheel mobility scooter that will support your weight and has plenty of allowance for max load.
Why Would You Prefer a Mobility Scooter with Large Wheels?
Your mobility scooter’s portability, manoeuvrability, and safety on road are largely determined by wheel size. What you gain with smaller wheels may be offset by a less comfortable ride. Again, a larger-wheeled mobility scooter will let you ride smooth with greater comfort while gliding over cobblestones, potholes, and curbs much easier. This is why large-wheeled scooters are more preferable.
In general, we recommend you get a larger-wheeled mobility scooter if you are going to be on trails, gravel roads, a soccer field or broken pavement. You will have greater control of the scooter as well. If you like to ride through the city, then you want a responsive mobility scooter that has smaller than 16-inch wheels.
The four-wheeled mobility scooter is something to consider when purchasing or renting for the elderly or disabled who needs to travel through rough and outdoor terrain. Affordable Medical Equipment has some travel scooters that conveniently disassemble into easy-to-handle pieces without the use of any tools, and they can be easily stored away in almost any car, van, or truck. Even the smallest of our 4-wheel scooters are robust, well-built and offer ample seat and legroom.
