Matching the right mobility scooter to the right person – starting at the top!

Tuesday, May 17th, 2011 by morethan

As the coverage of the Queen’s visit to Ireland reaches fever pitch we are struck by how a society that is generally so obsessed with youth takes for granted that this lady in her eighties is still doing a stressful and demanding job, and all so far without even an elegant walking stick!  We have been wondering whether, if a mobility scooter ever found its way to the Palace just what model she would choose and each new model that we bring into stock gets that “royal review”. 

So far we have not decided which is the most likely candidate but we have a great line up for you if you are considering your first or a replacement mobility scooter!


This season Drive Medical have come out with a new portable and a new 8mph model. 

Kite Portable Mobility Scooter 3 or 4 wheel  (Drive Medical)

Excellent for disassembling and with a couple of extra neat features (width and height adjustable arms together with a 360 degree swivel seat) this new portable mobility scooter can be stood upright when fully assembled for ease of storage  – scroll to the bottom of the product page to see it in this mode.  Most scooters won’t perform this acrobatic manoeuvre so if you need to store your mobility scooter in a cupboard and are tight on space this is a great one to consider.  At £675 for the 3 wheel and £699 for the 4 wheel version we believe this is a good quality buy.

Sport Rider 8 mph mobility scooter (Drive Medical)

With a range of 31 miles and a captains seat as standard this sporting 8mph road legal model is very cool – we can’t see it being the option for her Majesty but if you enjoy sleek gleaming design then this sports model might be just the thing.  Our website shows call for pricing because the manufacturer insists but we are always offering a great deal so call us on 0800 046 3949 for a great deal.
