The Drive Medical Phoenix 3 Wheel Compact Portable Travel Power Scooter Reviews
The Drive Medical Phoenix Scooter is one product that actually works as it claims to. Unlike many other products, it does not false advertise. According to reviewers, what you expect is exactly what you get.
An ageing reviewer, who is slowly becoming immobile, has been able to regain his independence thanks to this scooter. Since he can still drive a car, he mostly needed a scooter to use indoors. The Drive Medical proved to be the perfect choice. He claims it is very versatile. He can easily manoeuvre through tight spaces and hallways or through crowds in the mall.
Another reviewer finds it to be extremely safe. He compares it to other three wheel scooters. Unlike the other scooters he has tried, this one has never tipped or left him stranded. Sharp turns are smooth and level. He also loves its compact size. This means he can easily store it or take in from place to place in his car. To him, it proves to be well built.
Yet another reviewer purchased this scooter for her father to use. He has already owned four scooters and was dissatisfied with them all. She had heard and read great things about the Drive Medical Scooter and could only hope her father would appreciate it. After using the scooter only a few times, her dad fell in love with it. He claims it is by far the best scooter he has ever owned.
Most reviewers, if not all, would recommend the scooter to other potential buyers. The Phoenix 3 Wheel Portable Travel Scooter not only performs exceptionally, but it is also offered at unbeatable price.
