Scooters

Retail is quickly becoming the reality for many providers of standard mobility devices, and especially for providers of personal mobility scooters — and that’s not necessarily a bad thing. In fact, scooters open up a world of new revenue possibilities for any provider willing to explore and learn this important product segment.

The reason that scooters have taken off as a cash sales category is that funding options are limited. Many retail scooter customers either don’t have Medicare funding, or they are Medicare beneficiaries that won’t to settle for basic items that CMS will cover, and can afford much better options. Add to that the fact that so many Baby Boomers are entering an age where they can benefit from a scooter, and can afford to buy what they want.

The result has been an explosion of scooters that cover the spectrum of patient needs. There are scooters models that focus on durability, simplicity and affordability for the budget-conscious, and there are full-featured offerings that come with all the bells and whistles that appeal to well-heeled retail customers.

Suffice it to say that retail scooters represent a solid business opportunity for providers looking to expand their revenues. Here are some recent mobility scooters and related products available on the market:
