Living your life with a mobility issue is challenging, but there is a wide selection of mobility equipment available today that makes getting around as easy as possible. One piece of equipment that has helped a lot of people get around is the travel scooter. The first travel scooters may have been little more than a motor sitting on a scooter, but the travel scooters of today are some of the most state-of-the-art pieces of mobility equipment available today.
At Freedom Mobility, we’ve helped a lot of Marylanders get into their travel scooters, and we wanted to talk about three key advantages enjoyed by those who drive travel scooters. The three advantages being their versatility, durability, and ease of use.
Travel Scooters are Versatile
When you yourself have trouble moving around, you need a piece of mobility equipment that you can rely on. Most regular wheelchairs and power wheelchairs are designed for use on flat surfaces, and struggle when they encounter different terrain. Travel scooters are designed with a variety of terrains in mind. Traditional wheelchairs also sometimes struggle with lips in the floor, the kind that are found in doorways and elevators. Travel scooters don’t have this same problem.
Some of the Most Durable Pieces of Equipment on the Market
When looking to rent or buy a piece of mobility equipment, you want something that’s going to last you a long time, especially if you expect to experience your mobility problems for some time. All of the travel scooters we carry in our Maryland showroom are built out of lightweight, but durable, materials. Travel scooters have developed a lot over the years, and we’re quite proud of all of the latest makes and models we have to offer.
Travel Scooters Are Easy to Move Around
If you have problems getting around, you may struggle with even setting your mobility equipment up and moving it around. With a travel scooter this isn’t something you have to worry about. Travel scooters are designed with ease-of-transport in mind, with most of them being foldable so they can easily fit within your vehicle. Travel scooters are designed with all of your needs in mind, we know you won’t be disappointed after you see all of the different models we have to offer in our showroom.
