Mobility scooter rental in Geneva

Does anyone know of a place to rent (not buy) a mobility scooter from, preferably close to the city centre? I've already tried a store called Mobilité only to find it closed even during its advertised opening hours.

Rental prices would also be a big help, if you have the information. Thank you!

You could try these guys. They might rent. If not they should be able to tell you who does. They have a store in Geneva (Carouge).

I'll do just that, thank you! (More options would still be appreciated just in case they have no info)

Re: Mobility scooter rental in Geneva

Perhaps the Red Cross, for example here, under "Aide":
https://www.croix-rouge-ge.ch/index....s-responsables

or else ask here: http://www.imad-ge.ch/fr/prestations.php?service=18
This is the Geneva city organisation that provides nursing at home. They do much more, though, in coordinating the patients' needs, so perhaps they would know whom you could call.

Here is a private company providing nursing specifically for people on vacation. Perhaps they would know.
https://www.claireundgeorge.ch/en/hotelspitex/

Here you can find links to the office which issues disability aides. Even though they are probably about permanent use, perhaps someone there could advise you: https://www.ch.ch/en/medical-aids-ahv-iv/

http://www.hug-ge.ch/chirurgie-ortho...n-orthopedique
About half-way down the page: "Consultez la broschure l'UMPRO".

Here's one in France: http://www.scooters-rascal.com/
Here, too, even if they don't have a branch near the Swiss border, they may know of a partner organisation.

In all these cases, even if they are not the place, they may have recommendations for you. Perhaps you could ask about the hire of equipment in general, such as wheelchairs and rollators, and that might get you closer to what you need.

Wow, thanks so much! These should keep me at it for quite a while. Much appreciated!
