Top 3 Mobility Scooters for Amputees

Are you seeking information on the best mobility scooter for amputees? This blog post will help. It will go into great detail about which mobility scooters are ideal. There are several different types of mobility scooters. The one that is right for you will depend on several factors. The amputee coalition has several fantastic resources, if you’d like to check them out you can do so here.

For instance, some mobility scooters do not have an option to move the throttle to the left side. So if you had your right arm amputated, it would not be a good idea to purchase a mobility scooter for amputees that doesn’t allow you to change the throttle to the left side.

Will Insurance Cover a Mobility Scooter for Amputees?

That depends on your insurance policy, whether it is Medicare, a private plan, etc. However, getting a mobility scooter from insurance can be a tricky business. After a doctor determines it is medically necessary and writes you a prescription, we’ve learned that many insurance companies will try to only approve the lower end models.

Unfortunately, many people are under the impression they can choose any scooter and this is not the case. It ultimately frustrates the consumer and for this reason, Mobility Scooters Direct does not accept insurance. We offer one of the widest selections of mobility scooters online to serve our customers and offer the lowest possible price we are able to offer.

So if you have your eyes on a really nice heavy-duty scooter that costs thousands or even a high-tech folding mobility scooter that costs thousands, the insurance company will usually try to get you a mobility scooter that is entry-level that is barely enough to “get the job done”.

How to Save – Used Mobility Scooters for Amputees

If you are looking to save money on a mobility scooter, you can always consider buying a used mobility scooter from websites like BuySellWheelchair.com where users list their scooters or wheelchairs. They are second-hand and direct from the users. So buyer beware. However, many people are upfront and honest as they know someone with a disability will be purchasing the scooter or wheelchair.

If saving the most amount of money is important but you want to know for sure you are getting a product directly from the manufacturer, give us a call. We can try to provide you with a coupon code to save a little more but if you do some heavy research you’ll find our prices are the lowest in the entire country. That is because they are listed at MAP which is the minimum price the manufacturers allow us to advertise at.

Top 3 Types of Mobility Scooters for Amputees

The top 3 mobility scooter for amputees deserves thought. In order for us to create our top 3 list, we wanted to take a scooter from each major category. Travel mobility scooters, full-size mobility scooters, and folding mobility scooters. We’ll give a mention of a heavy-duty scooter but it will be difficult for you to travel with it and for that reason, we’ve replaced a heavy-duty mobility scooter with the full-size units.

Travel mobility scooter for amputees – A travel mobility scooter for amputees will allow you to travel with your scooter with relative ease when compared to a full-size or heavy-duty scooter. Keep in mind, each travel mobility scooter will have the heaviest piece rating. That is a very important specification because if you are alone, you’ll need to be confident that you can lift that piece into your vehicle. If you cannot, there are other options such as vehicle lifts for mobility scooters. You can find all of our travel mobility scooters here.

Full-size mobility scooter for amputees – If you plan on traveling a larger distance or require a more comfortable ride with suspension, then you may want a full-size mobility scooter. However, these are much more difficult to travel with. If you have a pickup truck or another vehicle that you could use a ramp, you may be able to get away with it. But do know, that usually a longer ramp is recommended than what most people think. Feel free to give us a call and we’d be happy to try and help you out to the best of our ability. You can view all of our full-size mobility scooters here.

Folding mobility scooter for amputees – If budget is not an issue, the most likely great fit would be a folding mobility scooter. No matter what type of vehicle you have, these are designs to have a small footprint along with fantastic specs. For instance, on some models, you can travel over 10 miles on a single charge at decent top speeds. They are also FAA approved so traveling domestically will be no worry. The only downside is the cost but units like the Solax Transformer have received nothing but rave reviews from all of our customers. Take a glance at the folding mobility scooters here.
