Looking for a scooter/rollator in Toronto/Markham area for a disabled person. Was wondering how much it costs? Also would it fit in a car? Preferably a mini-wheelchair that someone can push and can fit into a car (for a 95lb female).
Also, would anyone know if the cost for one is covered by OHIP or some sort of government assistance?

ADP covers 75% if - "For a resident to qualify, the equipment must be required on a daily basis to provide basic purposeful mobility both inside and outside the home. There must also be a long term need (more than 6 months generally)." http://wheelchair.ca/adp.php
Any manual wheelchair should easily fit into a car, especially one for only a 95lb person. If you can't get ADP, there's lots of used chairs (good Quickie/etc-types that retail for $2000+ new) on Kijiji and the like for ~$100, which would probably be better than buying the new cheapies from Costco/Sears, etc.
