As more and more of our senior associates ease into the Jazzy Chair and find ways for Medicare to pay for it we realize that there might be an after market opportunity to pimp your mobility scooter.
We’ve mentioned our neighbor who trolls the garden on his scooter. He now has his unit rigged for trash collection and walnut harvesting. I’ve seen him getting off-road to explore and beautify the environment. He gets it on two wheels at times and smokes the tires.
The Scooter Store site appears to market to men, but accessories are limited.

Top of the line power chair features joystick steering, two-12 volt batteries of cold cranking amps, peaks at 4.5 mph and travels 25 miles max on a full charge.
How much does a power chair cost?
from the scooter store site:
Our power chair models start at around $6000; however the amount you pay depends on your insurance. For example, because the amount Medicare will pay is different for nearly every state, your out-of-pocket amount will vary if you qualify for Medicare reimbursement.
