How to use this guide
A mobility scooter is a fantastic solution for those who find it difficult to walk but do not require the use of a powerchair or wheelchair. They allow independence in a way no other piece of equipment really does, and there are literally hundreds on the market to choose from. From small scooters which will fold and split to fit into the car boot to full-size 8mph maxi and off-road scooters, purchasing a machine that meets the needs of the individual user is essential in order to get the most out of it.
Here we have put together a buyer’s guide to mobility scooters in order to give you the best possible information while making your choice. If you have any other questions, please don’t hesitate to call one of our trained mobility advisors.
Portable Scooters (Boot Scooters)
Small, light & compact. Portable scooters usually have a top speed of 4mph and are designed to split or fold down easily in order to allow for easy transportation. These scooters range from very small and lightweight to mid size machines which will take up to 25 stone. It is important to remember that smaller portable scooters can sometimes have less “all terrain” capabilities than their larger counterparts.
Riser Recliner Chairs
Rise & Recline chairs are an increasingly popular and practical solution to an all too common problem for the disabled, people with minor mobility problems or those who just need a little help standing.
If you find it difficult to get up from your armchair, then a rise and recliner can make it very much easier.
Available with one or two motors, they allow you to recline the back and raise the leg rest, some to a full sleeping position if you wish. When you want to stand, a powered lift gently eases you back up to a standing position.
Our friendly and fully trained team strives to ensure that all products meet the needs of the end user. One size does not fit all when choosing a riser recliner lift chair; it is important to us that our valued customers are enabled to choose the product that is most suitable for them. When choosing your chair, it is often wise to consider a bespoke chair, tailor made to your requirements, especially if you suffer from certain medical conditions which require good posture is maintained.
We offer a fully bespoke chair design service. Our rise and recline chairs can all be handmade to your individual requirements. You will never experience more support and comfort from a chair until you have one hand made to your specifications. And it is not as expensive as you may think.
Delivery and Installation
Once we are happy that we have found the best chair for your purpose, we will order it for delivery to our showroom. Some chairs can be delivered within 2-3 days, whilst some bespoke or special orders may take 6-8 weeks, as they are hand crafted to order. Once we have your chair we will unpack and check the order, and contact you to arrange delivery to your home, where we will install the chair and ensure that you are confident in its use before removing all packaging and leaving you hopefully with your feet up!
