A mobility scooter is equivalent to a wheelchair but is power operated via a rechargeable battery. This allows its user to get around the house or the neighborhood without requiring someone to push them or the strength and stamina to wheel themselves around. Here are three top benefits of using a mobility scooter

Scooter

Benefits

An Increase in Independence

Sometimes with age comes a decrease in the ability to be physically active and get around on one’s own. Walking down the street to the mailbox, over to a neighbor’s house, or to the corner market becomes increasingly difficult.

Injury Prevention

When you’re older and don’t have the physical strength that you used to have, falls that cause injury become a real risk. Chances of a hard fall decrease significantly with the aid of a mobility scooter.

 

If your loved one has had surgery or is trying to recover from an injury, mobility scooters limit the physical exertion that is required to get around. This means your loved one can heal quicker and with less fatigue.

 

The seats of mobility scooters can be adjusted in various ways including stand, tilt, and recline positions. They offer support for individuals who have posture problems.

More Time and Energy

When using a mobility device, a senior can get around much faster with less energy. Getting out becomes fun again.This leaves them feeling happier and ready to be more involved in life around them.
