The CTM Mobility Scooter HS 120 Returns Your Freedom

Updated on July 27, 2012

Medicare Scooters - The CTM Mobility Scooter

When you are considering Medicare Scooters, like the CTM Mobility Scooter, you need to think about your mobility needs before you dash off to the scooter store to preview the latest models of disabled mobility scooters or motorized wheel chairs.

There are a lot of companies out there with many models of wheelchairs and scooters for you to pick from, but before you can make an informed choice you need to first think about how and where you will be using your mobility device. A medicare scooter and electric wheel chairs serve different needs, it is not a "one-size-fits-all" market.

A CTM Mobility Scooter may be just what you need, without paying hundreds of dollars extra to pay for advertising like you see from "The Scooter Store."

What are Your Mobility Needs

Wheelchairs and scooters serve different needs. Motorized wheel chairs will get you around just like disabled mobility scooters do, but they serve two different environments.

To determine your mobility needs you should ask yourself a few questions:

1. How severe is the disability? - will only electric wheel chairs fit your needs?

2. Where will you  be using your mobility chair? - inside/outside, level floors, ramps, some uneven terrain like your yard - there are medicare scooters for all these categories.

3. Do you need heavy-duty capabilities? Heavy duty mobility scooters can carry heavier loads and run on more uneven terrain, or lighter duty - 3-wheel mobility chairs for average weights to use around the home.

4. Do you need travel capabilities? - Is the weight of motorized wheel chairs or medicare scooters important? Will you be using mobility lifts or carriers, or are you looking for a folding mobility scooter?

5. How long do you anticipate using your mobility device? Do you want a power mobility scooter for a rehabilitation period, or are you looking for handicap scooters for long-term use?

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

These questions will help you decide what type of electric wheel chairs or motorized wheel chairs, or medicare scooter or handicap scooters might be right for you.

A CTM Mobility Scooter for all Needs

You will find a low-cost CTM Mobility Scooter model to fit your answers to those questions, and like most mobility scooters, medicare accepts these mobility chairs.

CTM is a company with a track record for dependability. They started producing mobility chairs and scooters in 1995, and have a range of scooters from 3-wheel light-weight around-the-house uses to heavy duty mobility scooters for use in an outside environment also.

The featured model - The HS 120 CTM Mobility Scooter is perfect for normal around the house use, but it also has the durability and battery power for longer range, and outside use also. Unlike a motorized wheel chair, a medicare scooter like the CTM HS 120 has more versatility and power.

      Very good post, I was really searching for this topic, as I wanted this topic to understand completely and it is also very rare in internet, that is why it was very difficult to understand.
