Cognitive AbilitiesFor safe use, users must understand cause + effect (action = result). Independent use requires directional understanding (i.e. moving control in one direction results in matching chair movement), problem solving (i.e. combine + time movements to get from A to B), and judgment (ability to learn that if something is unsafe they should not do it).
Functional AbilitiesUsers must have adequate vision and be able to grip and maneuver handlebars while simultaneously using the finger control forward/reverse levers. This chair is best for people with limited endurance, cardiopulmonary disease, and obesity. The ample leg room makes it ideal for people who are tall, have achy knees or are prone to leg stiffness. This scooter may be unsafe for those with visual deficits, balance issues and uncontrolled seizures.
EnvironmentThis device can be used both indoors and outdoors. It performs best on firm, flat surfaces such as pavement, groomed footpaths, cycle paths and in and around home. While it can be used outdoors, it is not intended to be used on rough terrain, slopes, loose gravel, or sand. Battery range is also decreased in cold weather.
ActivitiesIt's maneuverability and small turn radius make this the ideal scooter for use in tight spaces (stores, elevators, public washrooms, public transit etc.). While it can be used outdoors, it is best for activities done on flat level surfaces like urban sightseeing or sidewalk commuting.
