Considerations

Caution: Load Capacity for Mobility Scooters
The load capacity of a scooter may change according to the type of ground the scooter is used on. The supplier stated load capacity may have been given for a scooter that has been tested on flat ground. However, the scooter's load capacity, performance and stability may change when the scooter is used on an incline. These factors, including the maximum gradient on which a scooter should be safely used, should be discussed with the supplier.

Transport Accessibility
The space allowed on public transport for carrying mobility equipment is an area of 1300mm by 800mm.
Overall length of this scooter ...........965 mm
Overall width of this scooter ........... 495 mm

State transit will only carry scooters with an unladen weight of less than 200 kg and which can be driven onto the bus, and manoeuvred to fit wholly within the designated wheelchair space under their own power. Any such scooters carried must also comply where relevant with the rules applying to wheelchairs.

Three wheeled mobility aids of any kind are unstable in normal bus operations and will not be carried because of the safety risk.

Accessible buses display a blue and white wheelchair sign on the front of the bus, and on the easy access door.

Factors applying to all scooters
* This item should be trialled in the user's own environment to ensure maximum safety and independence. Environmental considerations include eg: kerbs, footpaths, tram and railway crossings, street crossings, etc
* Users should take care when riding a scooter or powered wheelchair and observe the following safety guidelines:
* Users who intend to use scooters or powered wheelchairs must ensure they have the necessary physical and cognitive skills to operate and manoeuvre them safely
* Stay within the legal speed limit of 10km/h
* Be aware that taking medication or driving under the influence of alcohol may affect the user's judgement
* Always make sure that you are clearly visible, particularly at night or on dull days-use the lights and reflectors and install a reflective flag high enough to be seen by motorists
* Wear a bicycle helmet whenever possible
* Slow down when you are near other people, especially pedestrians and cyclists
* Avoid stopping or driving on inclines greater than your scooter is designed for
* Use footpaths if possible. If there are no foot paths, plan to use quieter roads
* Plan your trip and avoid uneven surfaces, dips and potholes
* Ensure if you are carrying parcels that the load will not over-balance your scooter and the parcels do not interfere with your controls or vision

Requirements

Standards

Standards
Some assistive technology needs to meet Australian or other standards. Standards may relate to materials, manufacturing and installation. Products that meet Australian or international standards will have written certification. To find out if a product meets Australian Standards ask the supplier to show you the certificate. For more information about standards also see
http://at-aust.org/home/assistive_technology/standards.html

TGA
Many of the items on the Assistive Technology Australia website are categorised as a Medical Device. Medical devices that are approved for use in Australia have been entered into a national database called the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods (ARTG), which is maintained by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA). You can ask the supplier for the ARTG number for the device you wish to purchase and search the ARTG for the entry. To access information on the ARTG visit www.tga.gov.au

When buying a medical device it is advisable to only choose a medical device that is recommended by a healthcare professional and has been included on the ARTG.

Licence & Insurance Requirements

In NSW, motorised wheelchairs that weigh less than 110 kg and cannot travel at more than 10 km/h do not have to be registered, provided they are being used by a person with mobility problems. A person driving a motorised wheelchair under these circumstances is defined as a pedestrian under the Australian Road Rules and is permitted to travel on a footpath or nature strip adjacent to the road.

Vehicles exempt from registration are covered by the nominal defendant scheme (administered by the State Insurance Regulatory Authority) if they are at fault in an accident in NSW on a road or road-related area and cause injury to another person. However, this cover is only valid in NSW.
