Advantages of Folding Mobility Scooters
If you’re a person that likes to maintain an active lifestyle you probably prefer a mobility scooter that can be set-up in as little time as possible and that is as portable as possible…look no further then Folding Travel Mobility Scooters.
You could be someone that doesn’t require all the bells and whistles of luxury model scooters. Some people just want a reliable battery, good steering ability and a comfortable chair to sit in when making the rounds around town. The benefits of using a folding scooter as opposed to the full-body models are plentiful. For one, they’re much easier to move through tight hallways and doorways. Many homes of mobility scooter users have scuffed walls and thresholds due to the constant traffic of larger scooters scrapping against them on accident.
Storage is a major factor in determining which mobility scooter to purchase. Many industry favorite scooters are disassembled into several pieces that require more effort and time to putting the scooter back together. The weight of the individual pieces can be troublesome for users who have back problems–especially if the heaviest component weighs more than 40 lbs.
Folding scooters minimize all this burden by trimming the standard mobility scooter down to the bare essentials: battery, steering column, seat, floor panel and tires. With no disassembly required the standard folding scooter weighs up to 100 lbs. maximum.
Merits Yoga Folding Scooter

The Yoga scooter has an attractive feature for those who are in and out of the car frequently–a suitcase fold & roll option (seen above).
