Guide To Mounting And Dismounting Your Mobility Scooter

If you have a mobility scooter, chances are you know at least a few things about mounting and dismounting it. The steps can be tricky, so we’re here to walk through them with you.

Where Should You Mount Your Mobility Scooter?

When mounting or dismounting your mobility scooter, always make sure to do so on level ground. If you need to mount or dismount on an incline, be very careful and have someone nearby to help stabilize the scooter if necessary. The general rule is to mount or dismount from the side of the scooter facing uphill, that way if the scooter tips, it will tip away from you.

When mounting, first make sure that the seat is in the upright position and then place your foot on the floorboard in front of the seat. Using your other hand, grab onto the handlebar and slowly stand up, being careful not to tip the scooter backward. Once you’re standing, swing your leg over the seat and sit down. To dismount, simply reverse these steps.

If you have any questions about mounting or dismounting your mobility scooter, be sure to consult your owner’s manual or ask a staff member at your local mobility scooter retailer for assistance.

How to Mount A Mobility Scooter

Assuming you have a mobility scooter with a seat, the first step is to make sure the scooter is in an upright position. Once it is, sit on the seat and make sure your feet are firmly on the footrests. If your scooter has handlebars, grab them and put your hands in a comfortable position. Some people like to put one hand on the throttle and one hand on the brake, but it’s really up to you.

Now that you’re seated and have a good grip, it’s time to start moving. Slowly depress the throttle with your right hand (or left hand if you prefer) and the scooter will begin to move forward. As it does, keep your feet on the footrests and maintain a good grip on the handlebars. If you need to stop, you can either let off the throttle or use the brakes.

Once you’ve reached your destination, it’s time to dismount the scooter. First, come to a complete stop and put the scooter in park if it has that feature. Next, stand up slowly and carefully move your feet off of the footrests.
