Synopsis: Information and reviews of electric 4-wheel mobility scooter models available for seniors and persons with disabilities or obesity. Four-wheel mobility scooters give people independence and allow them to manage a lot of everyday tasks themselves, such as shopping, going out with friends, and going out for "walks" with people, they no longer are housebound.

Deciding on the appropriate mobility scooter for you will depend on several factors:
