My mother is getting old and can walk short distances but has issues walking over longer distances. I am starting the research process and do not know if I should be looking at power wheelchairs or mobility scooters. How do you know which one to look at?
Mobility scooters are easier to get in and out of. In seems your mother would be better off in a mobility scooter because she will not use it exclusively for her transportation needs. 3 Wheel mobility scooters are great for areas that have tight turns while 4 wheel mobility scooters typically have better stability. Power wheelchairs are typically used by those who will remain in the Power Wheelchair for the majority of the day.
