Mobility scooters are three or four-wheeled motorized carts that are configured to look different from motorized wheelchairs, so that they can fit the needs of individuals who might fear the stigma of a wheelchair. Whether you're looking for a scooter that will allow you to cross terrain outdoors, or a three wheel scooter that has excellent steering ability, there's a number of different companies and options out there.
