Get the support you need for the terrain you travel, regardless of weight capacity. Heavy-duty bariatric scooters have a 400 lbs. weight capacity or more and are built to navigate a wide range of outdoor conditions.

What is a Bariatric Scooter?

Bariatric scooters support greater amounts of weight for individuals who weigh 400 lbs. or more. At the same time, these heavy-duty electric mobility scooters are built for more rigorous, demanding conditions. Whereas many traditionally sized electric scooters only accommodate users up to 250 lbs., bariatric versions of these mobility products are reinforced and made with extra-sturdy materials to accommodate higher weights and those with larger frames.

What Makes an Electric Bariatric Scooter Different?

Heavy-duty electric scooters for seniors and larger adults with mobility challenges have different characteristics than their traditionally designed counterparts. Some features that define bariatric scooters include:

  • Greater Weight Capacities: Bariatric scooters support anywhere from 400 to over 600 lbs.
  • Built for the Outdoors: If you're someone who plans to travel or explore outdoors, bariatric scooters handle well and remain stable on a variety of surfaces, from indoor floors and pavement to uneven trails. Bariatric electric scooters are made with wider, larger tires that provide better traction. Additionally, certain models are designed to travel up steeper inclines. In the process, the scooter remains stable and delivers the performance you seek.
  • Comfort: No matter where you go, comfort is built into the design of a bariatric scooter. Common features include wider, cushioned seats and adjustable armrests and footrests. A sturdier suspension system and larger tires support your weight while absorbing impacts.
  • Additional Features: Depending on the bariatric scooter model, you'll also find a multitude of additional features that make these scooters easier for large-framed individuals to use. These may include swivel captain's chairs, flip-up armrests, suspension systems and more.
  • Lifestyle Add-ons: Like their traditional counterparts, bariatric scooters and mobility products include those must-have add-ons that help you live life to its fullest. These include metal baskets to keep your essentials close, cup holders that ensure that your favorite beverage is close at hand as well as trays that allow you to eat meals, read or craft with ease.
