November 21, 2019

When you have mobility issues, whether it be from an injury, disease, or old age, it’s important that you find the right equipment for your needs. Mobility scooters offer you a way to travel safely in public or large spaces with ease. Check out this guide to mobile scooters to see if renting or purchasing one is right for you.

Mobility Scooter Keeps You Moving

What are the Benefits of Mobility Scooters?

Mobility scooters are a fantastic solution for those who have mild to moderate difficulties with getting around. Many scooters are portable and can be stored easily, making them great for temporary or periodic use. They come in a variety of sizes and can be 3-wheeled or 4-wheeled. These scooters can be used on multiple types of terrain and can have a weight capacity of up to 375lbs.

Who Are Mobility Scooters Best For?

You have many different options when you have mobility concerns and are exploring the different types of mobility equipment available to you. So why look into mobility scooters? If any of the following is true about your personal needs, it’s definitely worth it to visit our showroom at Freedom Mobility in Hanover, MD to test one out first-hand:

Your mobility restrictions are only temporary. If you have recently had surgery, have a chronic condition with periodic flare-ups, or have an injury that causes short-term mobility issues, a scooter is a good consideration.

You are planning a trip. For those who do not need a scooter on a daily basis, it’s often beneficial to rent one when you plan trips that will have you exploring an area or traveling on foot for a significant amount of time on your trip.

You shop frequently. If you’re in charge of purchasing the groceries, toiletries, and other necessities for your home, a mobility scooter is beneficial to have for those shopping trips where you’ll need to make your way up and down the aisles. 

Important Things to Consider About Mobility Scooters

Although mobility scooters are highly beneficial to some, they are not meant for everyone. You may find that a power wheelchair is better suited for you if:

  • You do not have a good range of motion with which to control the scooter’s front wheels via the handlebar.
  • You have difficulty standing and walking on a daily basis.
  • You’re looking for a way to be mobile in smaller spaces, like inside your home.
  • You have limited arm, leg, or body function.
