A loss of independence and compromised lifestyle due to limited mobility can dramatically affect your outlook on life. The challenges of an aging body may limit your ability to walk distances that were at one time an easy task. There comes a point where you owe it to yourself to explore the abundance of mobility solutions to allow you to adapt your current lifestyle without sacrificing your independence. For many, Mobility Scooters are the answer.
Scooters can restore independence, freedom, enjoy the spontaneity of an outing and, most importantly, give you an overall feeling of well-being. You can get out into the community again and actively participate in activities of daily living with family and friends.
Many people prolong the decision for far too long, thinking that Scooters are 'for really old people' only to realize that, after their first time behind the wheel that they wish they had done it sooner. Scooters can also 'go the distance'.
Technological advances have greatly improved Scooters over the years and can accommodate many different personal needs and environments. With today's new batteries and motors, the hilly terrain of the North Shore hills are easily managed, and you can travel up to 55 kms on a single overnight charge, giving you peace of mind and an overall sense of well-being to enjoy your day and get home safely.
Is a Scooter Right for You? Scooters are powered vehicles that need to be respected and operated with due care. Premier Mobility highly recommends that you work with your Physician and Occupational Therapists (OT's) to fully assess your capabilities to operate a Scooter. They will work with your care team or arrange for an assessment to determine the best fit for you.
It is worth investing the time and effort to make the right decision.
Which Scooter is Right for Me.
There are a number of considerations to make in selecting the right scooter for you. Take your time to consider all of the options available. Its more than looks and colour to consider in choosing the right scooter.
You will need to consider how and where you are going to use it and it needs to match your physical attributes and level of ability. Some Scooters are more suited to outdoor use, some for indoor and others will accommodate both environments.
At Premier Mobility, they have many scooter brands to choose from to suit your needs.
One manufacturer exclusive to Premier Mobility is the American made Amigo. Amigo is reknowned for their innovative designs, high quality standards and customized options to fulfill your special needs for improved safety and comfort. One example of innovation, exclusive to Amigo, is the SmartSensor.
This optional device detects objects or people in its path of driving and stops the scooter to avoid collisions.
This innovation has greatly improved safety for 'indoor-outdoor' use and is very popular for use in many retirement communities, senior centres and store owners who truly appreciate this option. What About Travel and Portable Options? For travel purposes there are many lightweight, more portable versions to choose from.
One example-unique to Premier Mobility-is The TravelScoot: The World's lightest and most compact scooter. It weighs 35lbs and, when folded, will fit inside an oversized gym bag making it ideal for travel or a trip to the mall. Seeing is believing for this amazing "Scooter in a Bag".
