Are you considering purchasing a mobility scooter for a loved one, but find yourself unsure if such a vehicle would be appropriate for them? Before making that all-important decision, you would naturally want to be certain that riding an electric mobility scooter is completely safe, right? Well, you couldn’t have picked a better place to find out! Today, we’re diving deep into Veleco mobility scooters’ safety features, specifically designed to safeguard their users. So, without any further ado, let’s get into it!
Stay secure on every terrain with anti-tipping safety wheels
Present on specific models, anti-tipping safety wheels provide additional stability to the scooter. This is particularly useful during maneuvers on uneven surfaces or while negotiating corners. Veleco understands the importance of stability for mobility scooter users. Hence, these wheels are designed to offer an added layer of safety, ensuring a comfortable and worry-free ride.
Illuminate your path & stay visible – front and rear lights
For any vehicle, proper illumination is a critical safety feature, and Veleco mobility scooters are no exception. These scooters are equipped with both front and rear lights, significantly increasing your visibility to other road users, particularly in low-light conditions or at night.
The role of safety belts
Safety seat belts are an often-overlooked safety feature in mobility scooters. However, at Veleco and Velobike, we understand their importance. That’s why you can equip models FASTER, CRISTAL, ZT15 and DRACO with safety seat belts. They secure the user in the seat, offering additional security and confidence. Furthermore, safety belts are especially useful when driving on steep inclines or uneven terrain.
Captain seat – when comfort meets safety
Ergonomically designed captain seats are the perfect blend of comfort and safety. These seats provide users with a secure and comfortable ride, reducing fatigue and enabling longer-distance travel. By putting users’ comfort first, Veleco enhances the overall safety of their scooters. Captain seat is compatible with FASTER, GRAVIS, TURRIS, DRACO and all models with roof & windshield.

Boosting security with adjustable headrests and armrests
Headrests and armrests aren’t just about comfort. They also significantly enhance safety. By providing support and reducing strain, these features help to prevent muscle discomfort and fatigue, especially on longer journeys. You can adjust them to your needs and change their position every time you get on your scooter.
A smooth ride – the importance of full suspension
Veleco enhanced full suspension system ensures that your journeys are as smooth as possible. By effectively absorbing the impact of rough or uneven surfaces, it reduces stress on your body, making your travels more comfortable and safe. You’re probably wondering which models are equipped with a full suspension. The answer is: all Veleco class-3 mobility scooters have a full suspension.
Safeguard your vehicle with a standard alarm system
An alarm system in a mobility scooter might seem like a luxury feature. But it significantly enhances the safety of your scooter when it’s not in use. It acts as a deterrent for potential thieves, keeping your investment safe. All Veleco class-3 mobility scooters are equipped with an alarm, so you get this luxury feature in the basic version of the product. It is great, isn’t it?
Horn and rearview mirrors – your must-haves on the road
A standard feature on all Veleco mobility scooters, the horn, allows you to signal your presence to others. This audible warning device contributes to safer road sharing by alerting other road users and pedestrians of your approach or intentions. Veleco medical devices come equipped with rear-view mirrors. These provide visibility of what’s happening behind you without needing to turn around, making it easier and safer to manoeuvre.
We take braking seriously, and so should you.
The brakes on Veleco mobility scooters are designed to provide efficient and responsive stopping power. This guarantees safe driving and enhances confidence in our users. In some of Veleco models like TURRIS or ZT15, our manufacturer has incorporated a magnetic braking system. This advanced feature ensures additional safety, particularly in emergency-stopping scenarios, giving our users an added layer of security.
