Updated on July 1, 2011

The HS740 CTM Mobility Scooter - Claim your Freedom Again!

The HS740 CTM Mobility Scooter is the latest addition to medicare scooters by CTM.

If you are looking for a mobility chair, and not an electric wheel chair, you should think about your needs before deciding on something you might see on the scooter store ads. Motorized wheel chairs are great for inside, on level surfaces, but if your needs are more varied, then this is a model of disabled mobility scooters you might want to consider.

Electric power mobility scooters, (medicare approved), will give you the versatility of both inside and outside use. There are even travel scooters designed to allow you to put a folding mobility scooter in your backseat or trunk. Your choice would also determine your need for mobility lifts or mobility chair carriers.

Motorized wheel chairs will get you around just like disabled mobility scooters do, but Wheelchairs and scooters serve different needs. You should evaluate just how you will be using your CTM Mobility scooter to determine which model is best suited to your use.

Ask yourself these questions to determine your needs:

1. What is your disability? - do you require an electric or motorized wheel chairs?

2. Where will you primarily use your mobility chair? - inside, level floors, do you have ramps, or do you need outside versatility too, like for uneven terrain in your yard - there are medicare scooters for all these categories.

3. Do you need 3 or 4-wheel capabilities and stability? Heavy duty mobility scooters can carry heavier loads and are constructed to run on more uneven terrain and grades, lighter duty 3-wheel mobility chairs are generally for average weights and used around the home.

4. Do you need a travel capable scooter? - Will you be using your mobility chair with mobility lifts or carriers, or do you want a folding mobility scooter? Is the weight of motorized wheel chairs or medicare scooters important?

5. How long will you need a mobility scooter? Do you just need one for a rehabilitation period, or are you looking for long-term use of a handicap scooters?

6. Do you only want a new mobility chair? Or will you consider used handicap scooters?
