When a person lives with reduced mobility, it impacts practically every aspect of their life. Ordinary tasks like grocery shopping take on much greater difficulty than they need to. These difficulties can be alleviated with a mobility scooter, which offers a greater degree of independence in day-to-day life. They provide easy transport and, when need be, can themselves be transported easily just by folding the parts together.
One of the best benefits of the mobility scooter is that it encourages people to get outside. As we move into summer, the weather will only become more inviting and a ride through the park or along the beach boardwalk is a simple pleasure that might be otherwise impossible for someone who has trouble walking.
Mobility scooters are also a good alternative to owning a car, especially for someone who wouldn’t usually be driving out of their local area. There’s no petrol needed – the only energy cost is charging the scooter’s battery.
Most scooters don’t exceed a 10km/h speed capability, handle very easily and have a low centre of gravity, so they’re quite safe to use. They’re comfortably cushioned so extended trips are never a pain.
Knowing what a positive change the scooters provide for users, our experts at your local Betta Home Living store will work with customers to make sure they have everything they need, from the type of scooter to assisting with operation.
