Finding The Right Mobility Scooter That Fits Your Lifestyle

Getting about easily and independently is an aspect of life we all need. When such a critical aspect is impeded by mobility limitations and age, it can be a debilitating affair for the individual.

Fortunately for many such individuals, mobility scooters are the ideal solution to enable them to maintain freedom of movement, allowing them to participate in every sort of normal activity, from catching up with friends and loved ones to making a trip down to the nearest grocery store.

In today’s day and age, mobility scooters are as diverse as the individuals who rely on them. From foldable mobility scooters designed for travel or quick errands to heavy-duty ones built with strong suspensions and headlights that can take you to less-travelled grounds, users are now given varied and vast choices. Choosing the right mobility scooter that fits your lifestyle can get complicated. 

Whether you are making your first purchase or looking to upgrade your current PMA, finding the right one that fits your current lifestyle is quintessential. In this article, we will share the types of mobility scooters that we offer at Falcon Mobility.

1. Foldable mobility scooters

Foldable mobility scooters are great everyday options because of the ease of use and versatility that they offer. They are ideal for users with limited space at home. If you are someone who lives in a smaller unit and requires travelling about often, then considering a foldable mobility scooter is highly recommended. 

One of the significant advantages that a foldable mobility scooter offers is how fast users can fold and unfold them. So, if you are someone who takes taxis or rideshare services frequently, you will find it incredibly easy to fold them and store them in the car boot. 

Another significant advantage is that foldable mobility scooters are ideal for usage in busy and crowded areas due to their sleeker and narrower design. Whether you are getting a three-wheeled or four-wheeled mobility scooter, they have great manoeuvrability, allowing users to move through the crowd seamlessly. While they can be used outdoors, their smaller wheels might make it harder to go over bumpy paths.

One feature that you might want to consider when getting a foldable mobility scooter is if you are looking for self-folding or automatic ones. For example, our self-folding F2 ultra-light mobility scooter weighs up to 19.8kg and is incredibly portable. On the other hand, we also offer a Mojo automatic folding mobility scooter which weighs up to 30kg. While it is significantly heavier, it can easily be folded within seconds by a push of a remote button.

It all depends on your ability to fold and your needs. However, if you are looking for a mobility scooter that is easy to take out and about the city, then foldable mobility scooters are a great option to consider.

2. Travel mobility scooters

They share many similarities with foldable mobility scooters. In fact, many foldable mobility scooters, if not all, are suitable for overseas travel. However, one thing that sets travel mobility scooters apart from some foldable ones is their compactness when folded or the ability to take them apart into several sections, making them easier to check in or store in the overhead cabins.

They are a great PMA if you travel frequently. Most airlines accept them as cargo luggage. Some travel mobility scooters also tend to have better suspension for more rugged paths.

While most of our foldable mobility scooters are great for travelling, too, we offer an incredibly high-end alternative, Moving Life Atto Sport foldable mobility scooter. What sets this apart from the rest is that it comes with tons of features, such as ABS, ERB, high ground clearance, shock-absorbing airless NPT tyres, and automatic slowdown on steeper slopes. However, what makes this mobility scooter a great travel mobility scooter is its ability to be folded into a compact size of small hand-carry luggage.

If you are looking for a mobility scooter that you can bring easily on your overseas trip, then travel mobility scooters are the way to go. 

3. Heavy-duty mobility scooters

While all mobility scooters can be used on less flat paths, a heavy-duty mobility scooter can handle such paths better and allow users to travel for a much longer distance. The definition of heavy-duty mobility scooters tends to be quite general. However, you will find that models under this category are capable of travelling up to 30km on a single charge. They also tend to be able to carry a heavier max load, making them suitable for users with larger frames. Additionally, they often come with accessories, such as front carry baskets.

While some of our heavy-duty models have decent transportability, such as our Phoenix HD 3-wheeled portable mobility scooter, others, such as our budget-lite deluxe large 4-wheeled mobility scooter, cannot fit into car boots. Hence, if you are looking for a mobility scooter that will help you get around your neighbourhood more efficiently without having to rely on public transport, then a heavy-duty mobility scooter is a considerable solution. 


Whether you are choosing your new or first mobility scooter, your desired lifestyle should be your top consideration. Not just what you are doing now but also what you would like to achieve with the potential purchase. The right mobility scooter enhances your independence and freedom, allowing you to enjoy life more, with or without assistance.

If that is what you are looking for, then look no further than Falcon Mobility. With a wide range of PMA, from mobility scooters to electric wheelchairs, discover a more independent and freer lifestyle today! Visit our showroom to find out more!
