You may have been thinking of getting a mobility scooter for yourself this year. Mobility scooters indeed seem fun to ride but having the freedom and independence to move around make a scooter a very wise investment.
The reasons to invest in your independence and mobility are invaluable, but here are some of the most valuable ones!
- Maintains Independence
People opt to buy a scooter for what it does to their independence – that is the primary reason. Imagine no longer needing to depend on other people to do simple things like shopping for personal needs.
Whether you want to move around your house or property more quickly, or if you’re going to be able to head around the corner or across the country, a battery-powered scooter is your ticket!
You may not need a scooter to move around at all times, but even a minor fall can result in permanent injury. Using a scooter when travelling long distances will eliminate fatigue and reduce the risk of injury.
There are so many beautiful places and while away some precious “me-time”, even if it’s just the park in your neighbourhood!
Plane trips are possible with these agile scooters as well as they can easily maneuver through the crowds. The batteries are approved for air travel so that you can take them anywhere with you! Go around a cruise ship or load it on your RV and hit the road!
- Better management of your energy level
You can find places, go shopping or enjoy a sunny day outside without putting your energy to the test.
- Easier on your carers and family members
If a caregiver or family member usually pushes you around in your wheelchair, a scooter for you to use independently will make it easier for everyone. It will be a lot less physically demanding for your carers. You can enjoy more independence at the speed that suits you and can stop whenever you like.
- Encourages fitness
Some equate mobility devices with laziness or a person who has given up physical fitness. Nothing could be further from the truth. People often stop exercising because they lose motivation or get bored with their fitness routines. Confined to your home, you can only do a limited amount of physical activity, but if you are free to walk, you can go to the park where you can walk on the way or go to the recreation centre where you can do a low-impact aquatic aerobics class.
- Saves money in the long run
Electric scooters indeed require an initial investment, but they are quick to pay for themselves. If you rely on public transport or if you over-Uber to go door to door, the rates can add quickly. The batteries are rechargeable and require little to no maintenance.
No investment you make in your health, independence and peace of mind can be too much. Driving around in one of these mobility scooters will help you maintain a quality lifestyle. Get back your freedom by investing in one now!
