Amigo RD310000 Mobility Scooter
Amigo scooters have been manufactured in Michigan since 1968 and while they were one of the most common mobility scooters in Canada in the 1970's and 1980's, they have not been available in Canada for about a decade.
Amigo Mobility International, Inc. is now re-entering the Canadian market with a rear wheel drive, three wheeled mobility scooter that offers some features not found in other scooters. The Amigo RD310000 mobility scooter is a moderately priced scooter and is approved for ADP funding in Ontario.

Power Seat Lift -
The power seat lift option on the RD310000 mobility scooter is not unheard of in the scooter industry but it isn't common.
This optional feature allows users to adjust their seat height electronically as needed to reach items that are normally out of reach, to ease transfers or optimise their height when sitting at a desk or table.
3" Extended Platform -
The 3" platform extension provides the solution needed for those who have long legs and require more leg room than normally available.
Adaptable Seat Pans -
By replacing the standard upholstered seat on an Amigo scooter with a seat pan the user is able to make use of standard or custom made wheelchair cushions. Wheelchair cushions can offer a degree of pressure relief, skin protection and positioning that may be needed by those with more severe conditions or disabilities.
Modular Seating Systems -
Modular seating systems allow users to assemble a collection of components that are needed to provide proper seating for comfort and support. Modular seating systems offer a customisable seating system that can tailored to the users needs and adjusted or modified as needed.
Kosher Scooter Option -
Amigo works in partnership with Zomet Institute in production of the Shabbat Amigo used on the Sabbath. A toggle switch changes operation from normal to Shabbat mode. With no throttle lever activation by the rider, the module's timing circuit sets the chair in motion after 7-11 seconds, satisfying the "no work" Sabbath restriction. Each Shabbat Amigo is halachically-approved, individually inspected and certified by a Zomet representative.
