3 Wheel Mobility Scooter for Disabled Person

Updated on April 26, 2011

Four wheeled typed mobility scooters are the most common and widely used of mobility aids. They are built for long lasting and due to the stability that they provide, most public facilities such as shopping malls and amusement parks have few of them to be used for people that need them. Although 4 wheel mobility scooters are popular, there are significant benefits to as 3 wheel mobility scooter. Both versions of mobility scooters are almost the same in terms of functionality and conveniences, but the 3 wheeler scooter outshines the former in a few areas.

There are three main benefits of using a 3 wheel mobility scooter over a 4 wheeler. The 3 wheeler are more efficient than the 4 wheeled scooters. They are also far more convenient to use especially for maneuvering and transportation. Lastly, they look better than the conventional four wheeled mobility scooter.

The 3 wheel mobility scooter follows the concept of a normal bike that we use. It utilizes the cutting edge technology that enables it to perform more fluid turning ratio. With a 4 wheeler, wide sweeping turns can be performed easily but sharp turns are totally impossible, unless you want it to turn over. Instead to perform a so called ‘sharp turning’ with a 4 wheeler scooter, you will have to go back and forth again and again, which each time doing a small part of the turn. This can be a truly frustrating experience for many people who are truly impatient.

On the other hand, the 3 wheel mobility scooter with a one single wheel in the front allows the rider to make those sharp turns without having to involve endless maneuvering as with the four wheeler scooter. This is definitely so much more user friendly and more fun to scoot around it; an obvious advantage over the 4 wheeler scooter.

Although the four wheeled scooter offers more stability but not all people might need that. For many, the mobility scooter is just an aid to get from one place to another. They might have suffered an injury or have a disability that leads to long distance walking a painful experience or even not possible.

Why Choosing the 3 Wheel Mobility Scooter

The main purpose of a mobility scooter is to enable a disabled person to regain the freedom or moving around. The 3 wheel mobility scooter has not only achieved that, it also has made it even more efficient and convenient. Moreover, the 3 wheeler is far better in appearance and style. It has a more aerodynamic and streamlined shape compares to the conventional 4 wheeler. People love this type of design more than the latter; it makes them feel good and lighter.

Those are the key differences between a 3 wheel mobility scooter and the 4 wheeler. The main factor that you should consider when choosing between them is to consider about how much mobility that the user needs. For greater mobility and efficiency, it is very obvious that the 3 wheeler wins.
