Medical (general) / Assistive devices
Spanish term or phrase: motora
I need help with "motora" in this phrase and how it fits in with Motoneta, which I understand is a scooter. This comes from a questionnaire about what assistive devices a person may require. Items on the list are: Silla de ruedas motorizada, *Motoneta or motora", Prótesis de extremidad, Otros". This is part of a back translation, which up to now has been spot on on terminology, but this one has me stopped. Thank you so much!
