The Pride Maxima Heavy Mobility Scooter has simple user controls and a complete set of lights to keep the scooter visible. The flat-free foam rubber-filled tyres ensure that punctures are a thing of the past, and their sizeable 10-inch size gives the Maxima good handling outdoors. The Maxima is available in both a standard four-wheel model for the ultimate level of stability and a more manoeuvrable three-wheel version that offers extra legroom.
What is a mobility scooter?
A mobility scooter is an electric vehicle that can provide a simple and affordable way of getting out and about independently if you have mobility problems. A typical mobility scooter looks a bit like the ATTO Sport but functions more like a cross between a motorised wheelchair and a motor scooter. However, they travel much more slowly than motor scooters, with maximum speeds of 8 mph for road scooters or 4 mph on pavements. Although there are different types available, all mobility scooters have bike-style steering (a ‘tiller’) to direct the wheels, large padded upright seats and simple controls. They are powered by batteries.
Who is a mobility scooter suitable for?
Mobility scooters can be ideal if you have limited mobility but still want to be able to visit friends and family nearby, do your shopping or get around town without relying on others to help you get around. They’re suitable if you have a good sitting balance, the ability to step on and off, adequate eyesight and a good memory. However, if you have problems with any of the above, or if you have a medical condition that is likely to change, this might not be the best solution for you.
