A scooter is one cool and chic motorcycle to ride on…for normal people, that is. I mean, it won’t do for physically impaired individuals, would it? But the imagination and creativity of the modern man had paved way for a scooter that handicaps can enjoy in far distance travels. Yes, handicaps can actually ‘drive’ a scooter-like vehicle, which is referred to as a electric scooter.



A electric scooter is also known as an electric scooter or a power-operated scooter vehicle. It is really not a scary thing to ride on but is in fact something that is very easy to use.

All electric scooters work in the same way. However, some have three wheels while others have four, depending on the model and type. They may also vary in the size, as well as the speed limit of this special scooter for the disabled.

Mobility electric scooters with three wheels are perfect for indoor use, like in a mall or at home because their turning circles are relatively smaller than those of the four wheel scooter types.

Electric scooters generally make use of rechargeable batteries that allow them to travel 30 miles, or more. Some smaller scooters can only travel a range of 10 to 15 miles. However, batteries can be upgraded or extra batteries may be added for a better or farther travel.

These scooters usually need a key to function and move. However, they may be put in freewheel mode, allowing them to be stirred even without the use of keys. With this function, electric scooters can be stored and transported easily even when batteries are being charged.

An adjustable tiller is typically used to steer the scooter. The latter is driven with a lever pushed (forward motion) or pulled (reverse) with the fingers or the thumb. The scooter’s speed depends on how much pressure is placed on the lever. An emergency brake, like that of a bicycle, is available in some types of electric scooters for extra security and safety.

Some electric scooters can be lawfully used on the roads. Such scooters are larger and rugged and must come with indicators and full lights. Oftentimes, deluxe electric scooters are used as a replacement for the car. The seats are usually removable and adjustable. And because the seats are also much larger, they are also more supportive and comfortable than the seats of smaller electric scooters. Oftentimes, they also feature headrests just like typical car seats.

Smaller scooters are expectedly less luxurious compared to larger ones. They oftentimes do not possess some features of more deluxe scooters, such as adjustable seats and pneumatic tires. Also, as the sizes of these scooters are smaller, it is expected that they can only travel smaller ranges of distance and can carry lesser weight. However they can be dismantled easily and readily transported inside the boot of a car.

Electric scooters do not just aid in regaining one’s lost independence, but they also enable any physically disabled individuals a comfortable and satisfying journey beyond their own backyards.
