How to make manoeuvring easier

Anyone who struggles to walk or finds manoeuvring particularly tricky could really benefit from owning a mobility scooter. Owning a mobility scooter can truly change someone’s way of life and give them a whole new lease of life, regardless of what type of scooter they choose to purchase. Purchasing a mobility scooter means so much more than simply investing into someone’s physical ability to get around- it also has incredible mental benefits too, with the peace of mind that comes from knowing you are in safe hands and able to do everything you need to do in the day on a quality piece of machinery.
If you or someone you know is suffering from a disability that affects your movement or are suffering from reduced mobility generally, considering the option of a mobility scooter is a really good idea. It can be debilitating and downright frustrating to not be able to live a fulfilling life due to suffering from a lack of mobility, so why not invest in one from today? Here are just some of the benefits that having a mobility scooter can bring…

Different Styles

The great thing about mobility scooters is that they come in a huge range of styles and types that are as unique as their driver. Some companies offer everything from small to large road-legal scooters and other companies such as TGA Mobility offer TGA folding scooters. No matter what your needs are, there is going to be a scooter out there for you!

The Mobility Scheme

The Mobility Scheme offers you a great way to utilise your Higher Rate Motability Allowance, War Pensioner’s Allowance or your Personal Independence Payment. This will ensure that you aren’t left having to pay a lump sum payment upon purchasing your mobility scooter. While not all mobility scooters are covered by the mobility scheme there are still a wide range of scooters that are and they are perfect when it comes to giving you a new lease of life.

Simple to Operate

The beauty of mobility scooters is that they are incredible easy to operate and manoeuvre, regardless of where you want to use them. Just like a car, these machines are similar to cars in the way that they can be locked and left by your home without the need to extra safety equipment. Those suffering with limited mobility will be far more able to live their lives independently with the help of a mobility scooter. Folding mobility scooters are also a great choice for those who travel a lot and wish to be able to take their scooter with them on holidays and other excursions.

They Are Allowed on Public Transport

One of the greatest benefits of having a mobility scooter is that you can take them on almost any form of public transport, which only broadens the range of travel opportunities you can have. And, although trains, buses and planes have certain criteria to meet when it comes to mobility scooters (weight and dimensions), it isn’t difficult to get out and go far and wide on your scooter.
