How Does the Motability Scheme Work?

Anyone in receipt of a higher rate mobility allowance is permitted to use their mobility allowance to lease a scooter or powered wheelchair as well as a car or Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle. This is designed to provide flexible and hassle free access to a mobility vehicle of your choice to help you get around and giving you greater freedom in life. The payments are deducted from your higher rate mobility allowance every 4 weeks and then is paid directly by the DWP (department of work and pensions)

Choosing a Powered Wheelchair

Identifying your needs is highly important when choosing your new powered wheelchair. It is highly advised to seek the assessment of a medical professional who can help you identify your needs and what you may require from your new powered wheelchair. Should you not require a medical assessment – it is still highly important to consider your needs. 

You will need to assess personal factors such as your mobility, posture, balance, sight, cognitive ability, body height & weight as well as other factors. Our friendly team of experts can also help you to choose the perfect powered wheelchair to suit your needs.

Choosing a New Mobility Scooter

If your ability to walk fairly long distances is deteriorating over time then a new mobility scooter may be perfectly suited to you. Similarly to choosing a powered wheelchair, you will also need to assess your requirements and consider your mobility, posture, balance, body weight, sight, perception & tolerance before choosing your new mobility scooter. It’s also important to bear in mind that you still will need to travel short distances to stay active – so this is an additional point to consider when looking for a scooter.
