Why A Mobility Scooter Is Much More Than Just A Mode Of Transport

Posted on

Mobility scooters have been popular for many decades now, and for those who use them, they are one of the most important tools they use in their everyday life. Still, many people are hesitant to try out mobility scooters, to avoid looking as if they need help moving around. The truth is that there is no shame in enjoying life the best way you see fit, and for thousands of Australians, that means mobility scooters. Here are a few ways in which mobility scooters can help you enjoy getting out and about more than you do right now.

Shadey Ride

Summer is not an easy time to get outside for even the fittest Australians, with an unbearable sun beating down on most people every day. To combat this, mobility scooters offer shade that covers the entire driver so that there is no chance of sunburn, and you don't get that extra heat of direct sunlight on the skin. This allows many more restricted Australians the chance to go on longer outdoor trips, and even sit and enjoy the summers afternoon in spots they never would have been able to before. This sort of added luxury comfort is just one example of how mobility scooters are more than just a method of transport.

Plethora Of Accessories

The best way to make a mobility scooter fit your needs is to customise it exactly to what you want. Luckily for you, that is very easy to do these days, with many different options, from cooled compartments where you can store milk or other liquids, to lights and extra baskets for your other shopping. You can get steps so it is easier to get on and off, or you can install some additional footrests so you can more easily sit down. Whatever you need, mobility scooters can be made just right for you, in a way that other methods of transport simply cannot.

Easy To Park 

There is a feature on most mobility scooters called "Freewheeling," which is when the wheels of the scooter become much easier to navigate and push around. While this is not useful while driving, it is when you reach your destination. If you need to put your scooter in a tiny space in your garage, or there is not much room in the parking lot at the shops, then freewheel mode can help you squeeze it in. This extra touch exemplifies the common sense approach to mobility scooters that make them so popular and useful.
