For people with disabilities or limited mobility, a motorized handicap scooter can be an incredibly useful tool. The use of 4 wheel handicap scooters can give back the mobility you've lost and allow you to live freely again. This is especially true for veterans who get a scooter for handicapped mobility through their local Veterans Affairs organization. It's important that you choose a good model to get the most out of your scooter. If you are a veteran and you're considering increasing your mobility and independence with a motorized handicap scooter, check out some of these popular models.
The Maxima 4-wheel scooter is designed to be a heavy-duty option for the bariatric market, with a robust drivetrain and a large, deep seat.

The Maxima 4-wheel electric scooter can drive at tops speeds of up to 5.3 mph.

If you require more stability, you might want to look at some 4 wheel handicap scooters for veterans, such as the Victory® 9. While 3-wheel scooters are nice for their smaller size and turning radius, a 4-wheel scooter has its benefits too. Veterans who get a scooter for handicapped purposes may consider opting for a 4-wheel mobility scooter if they mainly use their scooter outdoors or prefer a sturdier wheelbase than what 3-wheel models offer.
