A serious illness or injury which l
imits a person_s power of mobility
can have serious detrimental effect
s upon both the individual whose mo
bility has suffered and the family
of the individual. Thanks to advanc

ity, however, these injuries no lon
ger mean an individual is destined
to spend most of their days indoors.

One major development in mobility t
echnology is the advancement of the
 electric scooter.

Scooters are ideal for elderly peop
le, who still have reasonable mobil
ity around the house or on very sho
rt walks but who find shopping trip
s or walks over more than a block u
nmanageable.

There are three major types of elec
tric scooter: the travel scooter, t
he mid-size scooter, and the outdoo
r scooter.

The travel scooter sounds like it w
ould be the most advance of the thr
ee, but in fact it is intended for
lighter use. The travel scooter com
es in three- or four-wheel designs,
 and is meant for indoor use or out
side on hard, smooth surfaces. The
small wheels on the travel scooter
are ideal for maneuverability in en
closed spaces, around furniture and
 other items around the house. They
 are usually designed to be collaps
ible for easy vehicular transportat
ion, and generally have a low batte
ry capacity as they are not meant f
or longer excursions.

The mid-size scooter and the outdoo
r scooter are considered to be _dai
ly use_ scooters. They are for indi
viduals who enjoy doing their own s
hopping and longer excursions.

The mid-size scooter is available i
n three- or four-wheel models, and
has a large wheel size that is suit
able for use outside. The maneuvera
bility is not as fine as with the t
ravel scooter, but still allows for
 good use in coffee shops, stores,
restaurants, and malls. Mid-size sc
ooters are not made to be dismantle
d, so a van or truck is needed in o
rder to move the scooter from one l
ocation to another. Mid-size scoote
rs can come with a large variety of
 options, including power seats, he
adlights, turn signals, and suspension.

The outdoors scooter is the SUV of
the scooter family. These scooters
are for individuals who are highly
committed to large amounts of time
outdoors over al kinds of terrain a
nd will not be held back by their l
imited mobility. They outdoor model
s usually come with four wheels, in
  order to gain maximum stability on
  rough terrain, but three-wheel mod
els are available. A larger battery
  allows the scooter to be used for
longer distances and time periods,
and the outdoor model scooter can a
lso come with suspension and light
packages. The outdoor scooter is no
t very maneuverable indoors, and it
  also requires a large vehicle equi
pped with a lift to transport.
