May 18, 2017

There are many reasons as to why you may need a mobility scooter. Whatever those reasons may be, a mobility scooter is a significant investment.

Everyone knows how devastating it can be when you’re stuck at home, ill, unable to move with just newspapers and the TV to keep you company. But limited mobility should not get in the way of you or a loved one, enjoying an exciting and fulfilling life! Below are a few of many benefits of owning a mobility scooter.

 

Increase Accessibility

Modern mobility scooters fit in brilliantly with the ever-changing ways in which people socialise.

With shopping centres and public spaces constantly improving accessibility, it is becoming much, much easier for mobility scooter users to access these sorts of places. Another benefit is that portable mobility scooters can usually be taken on public transport.

Injury Prevention

Whether you’re older or just don’t have the physical strength, falls that cause injury become a real risk. With the aid of a mobility scooter, chances of fall-related injuries are decreased significantly.

There are several other reasons to why you or a loved one may need a mobility scooter, such as recovering from surgery. Owning a mobility scooter limits the physical exertion needed to move around. This freedom can allow for a much more comfortable healing process.

Home Demonstration

Investing your time and money into a product feels much more satisfying when it comes from a supplier who has years of experience in helping those with limited mobility.

Companies such as Fenetic Wellbeing offer home demonstration on their mobility scooters for a small fee. Home demonstrations are a terrific way to get hands-on information from a specialist.

 

Simple to Operate

Certain mini/portable boot and mid-range mobility scooters such as the Sterling Sapphire 2 can be assembled in less than a minute. The majority of mobility scooters are incredibly simple to manoeuvre and operate, wherever you wish to use them.

You can recharge the batteries from the comfort of your own home. Be sure to read the manufacturers guide, or ask about the correct way to charge your mobility scooter, as overcharging will cause a gradual decrease in power.

 

Increased Independence

Mobility scooters are ideal for those who tire easily. It is essentially an electric vehicle that allows you to get out and about without the use of an assistant or carer.

Increased independence is inevitable, but mobility scooters have more than physical benefits. Psychological benefits from being able to leave the house when it suits you, and peace of mind for both you and your loved ones, make owning a high-quality mobility scooter the perfect long-term investment.

Be sure to consult your doctor to ensure that the health benefits offered by a mobility scooter are right for you.

There Is A Scooter for Every Need

People are different and have different requirements.

Fenetic Wellbeing organises them into three main categories, based on the most popular uses for each type of scooter.

Below is some information that can help determine which mobility scooter is right for you.

•    Mini/portable scooters are the smallest type of mobility scooter available. They are very lightweight and designed for everyday use, making them ideal for days out trips to the supermarket.

•    Mid-range scooters are a medium sized scooter designed for longer journeys and suitable for either indoor or outdoor use. Larger than their mini counterparts, comfort and versatility comes from robust suspension to handle rough terrain, a fully adjustable chair, and pneumatic tyres as standard.

•    Road legal (class 3) mobility scooters are the largest and most comfortable type of mobility scooters on the market. All road legal mobility scooters have lights, indicators, horn, and rear-view mirrors to comply with legislation. They do not, however, require a license or insurance to use.
