Scooter Ride Preparation


Getting Ready For Your Mobility Scooter Ride

  1. After our staff provide you with a inservice on the mobility scooter, we suggest you become familiar with the service manual.

  2. If you are new to mobility scooters would you be able to have another person who could go with you on your first ride?

  3. Check to see if your seat in the right position and can you see the controls.

  4. We suggest you practice driving your scooter and know how to negotiate the type of terrain you may encounter.

  5. Dress for the weather conditions. Do you need a sun hat or raincoat?

  6. Do you have a plan for the route you are going to take?

  7. Is your scooter charged and ready for the distance?

  8. Safety - Do you have a reflective flag? Your scooter store should have these. They are great as a visibility item. Ask us to include it in the price at the time of purchase.

  9. Do not overload your scooter with bags or parcels. If you require additional room, consider a rear basket to carry more items (Available at MEDmobility). An overloaded front scooter basket may be a problem as the excess weight will cause the steering column to shake at higher speeds.

  10. If you use oxygen, consider oxygen bottle holders mounted on the scooter. This will provide you with a safer more comfortable ride.

  11. Having a cell phone can help get you out of a jam. Is your cell phone charged and turned on?
