Difficulty mobilising longer distances and thinking of getting a mobility scooter?
Confused which scooter will be right for you?

We can help!  Melbourne Occupational Therapy Services will assist you, by assessing your mobility. We can determine if a scooter is right for you. Scooters have different sized motors, batteries and weight capacities.  What you need  will depend on your mobility, physical body-size, your capabilities, your mental ability (cognition) and where you want to go.

Go to our ‘Contact & Referral’ page, email us your details and we will contact you.

Did you know the ACCC reported 442 hospitalisations and 62 deaths in Australia between 2000 and 2010 involving mobility scooters? –  Unfortunately, in Victoria scooters are not regulated, so we see many people driving scooters inappropriately or not knowing the rules. Many people are unaware that scooter drivers should obey pedestrian law. Some individuals may have mental processing (cognitive issues) and put themselves at serious risk with road traffic and pedestrians.


1/ We assess you.  We look at your abilities and any medical, age-related or functional issues you may have

2/ We assess the environment you want to use the scooter in.  This means, we look at where you need to be able to use your scooter.

3/ We then trial appropriate scooter options with a supplier.  We are not in the business of selling scooters, so all our advice is unbiased and based on good products and a supplier that provides you good back-up service. We make sure you can use the scooter as there are many tips and tricks to keep you safe and we ensure you are aware of the pedestrian law rules.
