First and foremost, discuss this matter with your GP and family members before proceeding to buy or hire one. Here are the important questions you must ask.

1. Is it a Power Chair or Mobility Scooter? This will depend on several factors and mostly on the physical ability of the user and where it would be used. A power chair would be ideal for indoor use.
