If you struggle to walk or get tired after walking a short distance you could benefit from using a mobility scooter. Using an electric mobility scooter is not an admission of defeat and can make a great deal of difference to your quality of life, and can even provide a new lease of life and a new found independence.
Pride Scooters - Easy To Disassemble
A mobility scooter can give you more energy because you won’t be using all your energy in trying to walk, or push a traditional wheelchair. A mobility scooter can help to relieve the strain on shoulder muscles, wrist and elbow joints that are used when pushing yourself in a self propelled wheelchair or someone else in a traditional transit wheelchair. An electric scooter can help to provide you with the extra freedom, whenever you want. Some mobility scooters are capable of traveling up to 35 miles between charges, so the distance you can cover is much greater than in a traditional wheelchair.
By getting an electric mobility scooter, you can open many doors that have been previously closed, perhaps because of a disability or illness – such as going shopping, going out for the day, going for a “walk” with the children or grandchildren. You can go up and down steep hills in comfort and without fear of rolling down the hill, and without being worn out for days afterward. You can visit friends and relatives at your convenience, without needing to rely on public transport. Most mobility scooters have a key to start them, and so if the key is removed the scooter cannot be driven. This means that the mobility scooter can be left outside a shop, for example, and it can be “locked” like a car.
When choosing a scooter to fit your needs, there are a few things you should consider:
- Indoor Maneuverability
- Indoor & Outdoor Versatility
- Outdoor Capabilities
- Increased Weight Capacity
- Easy Portability
- Maximum Outdoor Performance & Speed
