Keep on Movin'
Portable and travel mobility scooters are designed for active adults who may have difficulty walking distances but don't require a wheelchair. Traditionally, they have been sold by medical-supply companies, but these days you can also buy them on Amazon (although models from established brands such as Drive, Pride Mobility, and Golden Technologies tend to be sold via third-party retailers, not Amazon itself). Unfortunately for consumers, while there is no shortage of models available, there aren't many reliable, independent reviews of portable and travel mobility scooters online, making it difficult to determine the best models. To supplement those few reviews worth consulting and make our picks, we examined consumer feedback on top-selling models on Amazon and scrutinized scooters for key safety and convenience features that experts and owners alike say are important.
