The Benefits of Mobility Scooters
Elderly people who struggle to walk or get tired when moving a short distance can benefit from using a mobility scooter. Many people see this as admitting defeat – but this is not true. It means gaining a new lease on life and finding independence.
Mobility products and stairlifts give elderly and disabled people more energy because they won’t get tired walking or moving a wheelchair.
Mobility scooters, as well as stairlifts, can help to relieve strains on elbow joints, wrists and shoulder muscles which are used when maneuvering yourself in a wheelchair, or pushing someone else in a traditional wheelchair.
Electric scooters, at, means new found freedom and movement whenever required. They can travel up to 35 miles before it needs charging – so it’s easy to travel further than a wheelchair.
By getting an electric mobility scooter, or stairlifts, many avenues of possibility open up – such as being able to go shopping, take a trip out for the day, or go a walk with loved ones. Steep hills will become accessible, without fear of rolling down the hill, or being worn out for day.
When visiting friends and relative public transport over short distances will no longer be necessary. Most mobility scooters need a key to start, so they cannot be operated by anyone except the owner. Acting like a locked car, a mobility scooter can be left outside a building if necessary. Many mobility products, such as stairlifts or rise recliners will help elderly people feel independent.
