Five reasons why you should buy a mobility scooter
The physical and mental challenges for people who experience limited mobility can be stressful and the source of a lot of pain. So here's five reasons to consider purchasing a mobility scooter.
- If tasks such as walking are painful, scooters can diminish the discomfort. Think of them like power wheelchairs, as they can help you move round without needing to exert physical effort.
- Your social life can struggle because of the discomfort you experience from limited mobility needed to attend gatherings and scooters aim to improve that.
- To establish independence and avoid relying on family, friends and aids to be with you through every activity that maybe you’d rather be able to do yourself.
- When you can no longer pursue your passions and your physical ailments prevent you from experiencing the joys you used to engage in.
- By broadening the range of activities you can physically do, the boost to self-esteem can’t be understated.
Of course, it is recommended you check with your doctor or occupational therapist before making the decision.
However, being that mobility scooters require no license to use, it’s very easy to get started and get on with your new sense of freedom that these mobility scooters provide.
Which scooter is right for you?
There are a few checks you should do before making the jump to a mobility scooter, they may be simple, but they are necessary. Everyone’s situation is unique so before purchasing, and there are many scooter and electric wheelchair models to choose from. So you should make sure you have sufficient vision and enough dexterity to get in and out of your scooter safely.
Operating a mobility scooter also requires you to be able to concentrate and react to things such as children or pets running out into your path while you’re scooting around Shoalhaven.
As with all things accessibility, you’ll need a scooter that positively affects your particular situation. You might not know what to look for and what features you should value more than others, so to help you make your choice, here are a few aspects of mobility scooters to consider.
Consider height and size
There is a large range of scooters available on the market. While they are all about providing support for your body, you’ll have to consider the size of the scooter in comparison to your body. Can you reach the controls comfortably? Is the seat high enough for your legs to fit easily?
While a four-wheeler provides a lot of extra stability, you may find that a 3-wheeler has much more leg room, making getting in and out of the scooter easier. Our team can help you find the perfect scooter model for you.
Consider whether you need carers
If your condition requires a carer, then it may be wise to have them present when selecting the scooter for you. They’ll need to know how it works, how to maintain it, and they’ll likely have questions that pertain to your health and well-being in relation to the use of the scooter. They'll also need to know how to operate the chair with safety so that they can minimise the risk of injury to you and to themselves.
Consider the future
These scooters can last an exceptionally long time, therefore you’ll want to make sure you’re buying one that’s appropriate for any foreseeable change in your physical condition.
If your condition is prone to weight gain, or maybe you’re likely to have to start carrying oxygen bottles with you at some point down the track, these are all things that will affect what scooter is the right scooter for you.
