Our scooters and powered wheelchairs

These products can make a huge difference to your mobility. They’re easy to store and charge, and there’s lots to choose from.

Are they right for you?

"Our dealers will come out to a customer’s address and really understand a customer’s requirement."

Jim Wood, Relations Manager for scooters and powered wheelchairs

Giving you mobility

Whatever your needs, there’s likely to be a model that suits you. You can ride some around the home and some on the road. 

Over 500 to choose from

Scooters come in three sizes. Powered wheelchairs vary from standard up to customised models. We can help you choose. 

Easy to look after

The small size makes them easy to store in the house or a small outside space. You can recharge them from home and fold some models for transport.

Your most affordable option

Most scooters and powered wheelchairs cost less than your weekly mobility allowance.
