Do you want to get around easily at home or in your community? Are you looking for mobility options to access the places you want to go? Do you want to be able to move about independently, quickly or safely? Powered wheelchairs and mobility scooters are designed to be used by a range of people with impaired mobility. Mobility scooters are designed to be used outdoors for longer distances. Power drive wheelchairs can be used both indoors and outdoors, depending on the model. Speak to your Occupational Therapist or Physiotherapist to discuss what you want to achieve with a powered wheelchair or scooter.
