Choosing the Right Power Scooter

by Daniel Dunleavy

 

Spring is here and it is always a good experience to get outdoors and enjoy the wonderful weather. A power scooter can help provide freedom and independence to people with limited mobility.

For the years that I have been at CWI Medical, one of the most popular questions that I hear from our customers is “How do I know which Power Scooter is right for me?” It’s true that there are many different types of scooters to choose from and getting the right one to fit your needs can be a little bit tricky. Drive Medical, a leading manufacturer of medical equipment, provides a complete line of high quality, affordable Power Scooters and Wheelchairs.

The Pilot 3 Wheeled Power Scooter is a beautiful looking medium-sized scooter complete with headlight, comfortable swivel seat and an impressive 22 mile cruising range. The tires are flat free, meaning you will never have to replace them. The 53” turning radius makes it perfect for indoor and outdoor use. The frame is extremely durable and sleek looking. Easy controls make it a breeze to operate. The Pilot 3-Wheel Power Scooter is available in burgundy and blue.

If you are looking for something more compact, a great inexpensive choice is the Hawk Compact Scooter. The Hawk is a 3-wheel Scooter like the Daytona, but is more lightweight and easily transportable. Easy to operate speed control and thumb throttle make it ideal for indoor or outdoor use. The Hawk also comes with a front mounted basket, LCD headlight, flat free tires, and a cable free battery that operates by contact.

For anyone that likes to cruise, the ultimate in luxury and style is the Prowler 4-Wheeled Power Scooter. The Prowler is a heavy duty power scooter with fully adjustable suspension, 12 inch pneumatic tires, and a large captain seat with adjustable height and width arms. The Gladiator comes standard with head and rear lights, shock absorbers and anti-tippers that prevent the scooter from falling over. Two 50 amp batteries power the Prowler, and a 5 amp charger powers the batteries quickly. The Prowler has a top speed of 7 mph - great for outdoor use.

The Cirrus Plus EC Power Chair looks more like a standard wheelchair and has an integrated, programmable PG controller and adjustable length joystick mount. It also features an attractive carbon steel frame with a silver vein finish. The foldable, lightweight frame makes portability and transportation easy and convenient. The Cirrus Plus comes standard with seat belt, seat cushion with pouch, calf straps and heel loops. Padded back upholstery and cushioned seat makes the Cirrus Plus an extremely comfortable ride.

Drive Medical has many other power scooters available for people with different needs. If you have any questions about power scooters, please feel free to contact CWI Medical at 1-877-9-CWIMED or over the web at http://www.cwimedical.com.
