How to Choose an Electric Mobility Scooter

Take back you freedomAs we age, walking long distances may prove to be more difficult, yet we want the freedom of mobility. Purchasing an electric scooter may be the right option to accomplish this goal. There are many different versions of electric mobility scooters in the marketplace. First consider whether you will need it for both indoors and outdoors and if you need to transport it with a vehicle.

If you plan to use it mostly outdoors and need to travel longer distances you will probably want to consider a 4-wheel base scooter. These provide the greatest stability. A 3-wheel base scooter may be a better option for more indoor use. They also make a travel scooter that easily comes apart to fit inside of a vehicle and most are even airline compliant.

Think about the different features that you may want to add to your scooter for greater comfort such as arm rests, storage baskets and swivel seats. Getting outdoors, attending social activities and maintaining a level of independence are all factors that lead to increased longevity and a higher quality of life. Do not let your decreased ability to walk long distances stop you from these important activities. An electric mobility scooter may help you stay active and enjoy your time.
