Lightweight mobility scooters give independence back to those who have limited movement and may have trouble walking but still would like to travel, visit family and friends freely. These scooters tend to be extremely lightweight to help with picking up and placing in the boot of a car.
Some larger scooters may not be able to fit into a car as easily as a folding or boot scooter would be, so if you prefer to jump in your car and take it with you one of these scooters would be more ideal for you. If you are travelling a lot, or need to store your scooter compactly, then a portable scooter may just be what you need!
