You indicate you live in the UK, which means you can't use Eurail but should use Interrail.

There are discounted Interrail tickets available for EURO 2024:

Your journeys would be covered by Interrail, except that you can only use it in your country of residence on a maximum of 2 days. You're planning to travel in/from/to the UK on 3 days, so you'll need a separate ticket for one of the journeys involving the UK (SW-London, London-Brussels or Brussels-SW), whichever is the cheapest (probably SW-London or London-Brussels). Eurostar between London and Brussels needs a €30 reservation and Brussels-Düsseldorf will also need a reservation (price depends on which train(s) you use).

Whether the mobility scooter can be taken on the trains will depend on its size.

You should also check prices of regular tickets. Prices may not be very different, especially if you don't need the flexibility to change your schedule.

What is it in the route planner you're confused about?

thank you so much for your help.
