Scooters for Mobility

Me and my Lynx-4 Scooter - 2013

Me and my Lynx-4 Scooter – 2013

So by summer of 2012, the Segway was getting less optimal for getting around and I purchased this Lynx-4 Mobility Scooter.  It is a 4-wheel version with a very low clearance ( 1 inch or less).  If I purchase another scooter, I will be sure to get one with a bigger ground clearance as this one gets stuck on the smallest bumps.  I also purchased an Armstrong lift to be able to transport this scooter in my car.  I am very pleased with the Armstrong lift and the ability to lift the scooter without effort and have it ride inside my car where it is protected from the elements and theft.  I will post a video of me using this scooter and loading/unloading.  I was able to do this myself until summer of 2013 where, when walking from the back to the front of the car, I fell.  Therefore, I have given up loading it myself and now always ask for help.  It doesn’t require strength, just the ability to walk.

I love the added mobility this scooter has given me as I can ride for hours and not worry about getting off so I could sit down (as on the Segway).  I also like NOT wearing a helmet!
