YOUR GUIDE TO BUYING A SCOOTER OR POWERED WHEELCHAIR
Welcome to “Get Mobile”, RADAR’s independent guide to help you purchase a mobility scooter or powered wheelchair. There are thousands of people who will tell you that their quality of life has significantly improved since buying a powered wheelchair or scooter. Being able to get out independently, where and when you want is a positive life enhancing experience.
“Get Mobile” will help you assess your own needs, be aware of the risks and decide what kind of mobility aid is right for you. This guide advises on the methods of purchase and financial support, takes you through considerations such as operating costs and outlines your rights as a consumer. We have also provided you with best practice case studies and a list of useful contacts and information.
RADAR is only too aware of the value that disabled people place on our levels of independence. A powered wheelchair or scooter can often be the very aid that goes some way to helping people achieve this.
RADAR’s vision is of a society where human difference is routinely anticipated, expertly accommodated and positively celebrated. Our mission is to promote change by empowering disabled people to achieve their rights and expectations and by influencing the way that disabled people are viewed by society.
Chief Executive, RADAR
