Mobility Scooters

A mobility scooter is an electric vehicle that can serve as a form of micro-mobility aid to help people with reduced mobility move around more easily. The easy-to-use controls of mobility scooters make them simple to operate without too much effort. Mobility scooters are similar to power wheelchairs with the configuration of a motor scooter.ย 

As people get older, many seniors may find it increasingly difficult to move around freely or to stand for long periods of time. Mobility scooters can provide undeniable benefits for seniors during scenarios such as shopping or general outings. While some stores, for example, may offer public scooters, these are often ill-fitting, noisy, and badly worn. Because of this, using a rental mobility scooter may be more beneficial due to convenience, better quality, and functionality.ย 

Get About Mobility has a wide range of disability and aged care equipment solutions to allow the elderly and those with disabilities to undertake everyday tasks in which they need to move around freely and independently. A mobility scooter for hire has the unique ability to assist the elderly or disabled persons to regain and maintain their independence for much longer.ย

What Are the Benefits of Mobility Scooters? 

 

From getting around more easily to providing a huge boost to the social life of an elderly or disabled person, here are some of the many benefits of having a mobility scooter:
 

1. Physical and Mental Health and Wellbeing 
 

Studies have found that the use of a mobility scooter can have a significant positive effect on the health and well-being of the user. It was found that by limiting the need to utilise a major part of energy by simply walking or standing, a person stores up energy for fun activities that are more beneficial to physical health and well-being. This goes a long way toward increasing the overall quality of life for elderly and disabled people. 

 

2. Participation in Public Activities 

 

The same study noted that people who use a mobility scooter are more eager to participate in public activities and family outings. With a mobility scooter, the looming barrier of struggling to move around in busy public spaces is eliminated, making users more eager to participate in activities they previously avoided or even stopped doing. Having the ability and freedom to participate in social events can provide the elderly and disabled with huge and tangible benefits for mental health and overall well-being. 

 

3. Mobility 
 

Mobility scooters provide thousands of people who have lost their ability to move around freely a sense of renewed freedom and pride. A mobility scooter is an excellent way to get around in a local neighbourhood or even do shopping without having to deal with confusing public transport or crowded public spaces. 
 

Social Benefits 

 

Another important benefit of mobility scooter use is an increase in the social lives of users.  As people get older they find it more difficult to maintain a healthy social life. Studies indicate that the ability to maintain positive social activities is as important if not more than the need to maintain good physical health. 
 

After all, a fit and healthy body are of no use if the person ends up suffering from loneliness or depression due to a lack of social interaction and a loss of interest in keeping fit. Mobility scooters help to boost social participation in local activities as well as maintain existing social relationships. A mobility scooter can help a person with mobility issues get to a social event, meet friends for coffee, or take part in social activities like card games. 
 

Drawbacks 

 

The only real drawback to mobility scooters is their size and weight, storage space, cost, maintenance, and insurance. However, if you hire a mobility scooter, factors such as insurance and maintenance will not be an issue. Mobility scooters are large and heavy and can be harder to move from place to place than other types of mobility aids like walkers. The high cost of owning one is also mitigated by an affordable monthly hire cost.
