6 Benefits of Owning a Mobility Scooter

Limited mobility should not get in your way when enjoying an exciting outdoor walk with your loved ones. Nowadays, there are many affordable and accessible mobility scooters in the market that will guarantee long-lasting memories.

Here are some of many benefits as to why investing in a mobility scooter is rewarding:

Accessibility

Public spaces such as shopping malls, pharmacies, and grocery stores are constantly improving accessibility for customers to use small scooters inside stores. This allows users to browse around and shop without worrying if the scooter will fit through aisles and cash registers.
Another benefit of owning portable scooters is that they can be taken on public transit. The main requirement is a front tie-down so it can be hooked onto the designated securement areas of a bus. A great scooter that meets all requirements is the Pride Zero Turn because of its turning radius and front tie-down.

Injury Prevention

As people age, the risk of falling increases. Unfortunate accidents and injuries can be prevented with the aid of a mobility scooter.
Recovering from surgery, loss of physical strength are just some of the many reasons why you may need a mobility scooter. Owning one would make daily activities an exceptional experience.

Free In-store Trials

According to the First Insight Report, 71 percent of consumers would likely purchase an item if they were in a store rather than online where they cannot try it out or see it physically.

Many people also feel more comfortable when a product comes from a supplier who has years of experience in helping those with limited mobility.

Mobility 1st Ltd. has been serving customers for over 15 years. Our in-store accessible trials have helped us establish a deep connection and trust in the community and all of Southwestern Ontario.

With our experience we can provide clients high quality mobility solutions and superior personalized customer service that our clients require.

Easy to maneuver

A small portable scooter such as the EasyFold scooter can be folded by the push of a button in less than 10 seconds. The wireless key fob helps with the quick folding and unfolding of the scooter automatically. Weighing only 65 lbs, the EasyFold is the lightest and most practical scooter in the market because of its simple way to operate. It is compact when folded and fits in any small space perfectly.

You can recharge the batteries individually or charge the whole unit at once. It is important to always read the manual or ask about the correct way to charge your mobility scooter as overcharging will cause a gradual decrease in power.

Independence and Freedom

Most customers describe the purchase of a scooter as their “new ticket to freedom,” and it sure is when it allows you to get out and about without the use of an assistant or career.

Mobility scooters have more than physical benefits. Psychologically, being able to leave the comfort of your home on a reliable piece of equipment and provide your loved ones with a peace of mind will make that long-term investment worth it. Walking will not be a struggle anymore as you can easily swivel out your scooter seat and take break when you get tired.

A scooter for Every Need

Mobility scooters are usually categorized based on popularity and sizes. Below is some information that can help determine which mobility scooter is right for you.

  • Portable/Travel small size scooters such as the EasyFold Scooter, Invacare Colibri, Drive Spitfire Scout and Pride GoGo are very lightweight and designed for everyday use. These can be used indoors or outdoors.
  • Midsized scooters are designed for longer trips and suitable for either indoor or outdoor use. The Pride Victory 10.2, Invacare Leo, and Invacare Pegasus Metro are some of the options available to handle almost any terrain. Feel free to visit our showroom at 1161 Florence St. to test drive them yourself.
  • Large mobility scooters such as the Comet PRO, Pursuit XL and Wrangler are the perfect option if you are looking to replace your car. Their 13-inch threaded tires and power make these ideal for the winter months as well. These types of scooters have lights, left and right indicators, horn, and rear-view mirrors. You do not need a special license or insurance to use them on walkways, as long as is safe to do so.
