Flip-away armrests grant improved access, whilst the footwell is sturdy and capacious, leaving you with plenty of room to rest your feet. As standard, the Pride Ranger off-road mobility scooter is fitted with a full lighting package including indicators, front headlights and brake lights to ensure maximum visibility even in low-lighting areas.
The safety of the driver is the paramount consideration to the designers, which can be seen in the excellent safety features: anti-tip wheels, an anti-rollback system and a backup sensor when reversing. The Pride Ranger off-road mobility scooter is powered by two 75 AH batteries (supplied) which provide a top speed of 8 mph and offers an excellent range of up to 30 miles.
What is a mobility scooter?
A mobility scooter is an electric vehicle that can provide a simple and affordable way of getting out and about independently if you have mobility problems. A typical mobility scooter looks a bit like the ATTO Sport but functions more like a cross between a motorised wheelchair and a motor scooter. However, they travel much more slowly than motor scooters, with maximum speeds of 8mph.
Although there are different types available, all mobility scooters have bike-style steering (a ‘tiller’) to direct the wheels, large padded upright seats and simple controls. They are powered by batteries.
Who is a mobility scooter suitable for?
Mobility scooters can be ideal if you have limited mobility but still want to be able to visit friends and family nearby, do your shopping or get around town without relying on others to help you get around.
They’re suitable if you have a good sitting balance, the ability to step on and off, adequate eyesight and a good memory. However, if you have problems with any of the above, or if you have a medical condition that is likely to change, this might not be the best solution for you.
