The scooter is generally powered by pressing handlebar "throttles" included in the handlebars at the front; you are able to stop or brake in this manner too. The scooter itself operates on batteries which are recharged often; usually, these batteries possess a distance lifetime of several miles before they require recharging.

That are portable mobility scooters NOT designed for?

However, portable mobility scooters might not be for everybody. For those who have trouble sitting up and don't have lots of torso mobility, an electrical wheelchair might be a more sensible choice.
