Create an Active Lifestyle with a Mobility Scooter

EV Rider Vita

EV Rider Vita Active Lifestyle Mobility Scooter

Confinement can be the most depressing situation that handicapped individuals can experience. Nobody wants to stay in the house for a long time, especially when it is not necessary. Devices like walkers are a great tool for those with balance issues or needing more support. For those who need more than just a walker to get around, especially for longer distances, there are many mobility scooters on the market.

Electric mobility scooters are designed to provide disabled people with a safe mode of transportation to the nearest store, park or community building. These battery operated chairs can be three or four wheeled, with easy operation. The reverse as well as forward motions can be controlled by the rider using a switch or finger controls or by thumb pads as per the design of the device.

Most scooters run at the speed of 5 miles per hour, have electronic brake systems which provide brake lock without roll-back on inclined surfaces. Headlight dimming and blinking mirrors are useful for signaling, while the multifunctional display panel shows information such as battery power capacity. Some units come with air-filled tires and other are foam filled so that flattening is not an issue. Seat upgrades are available, which includes armrests, belts, and full-circle swivel.

Making the right decision on the right mobility scooter for you will depend on several factors:

  • Comfort – Does the scooter fit you? Is it long enough? Can you sit correctly?
  • Travel – Will the mobility scooter be used to travel indoors or outdoors? Most can be used both indoors and out. A 4-wheel mobility scooter is typically better for outdoors. 3-wheel scooters are better to navigate in tight rooms because of smaller wheels and much smaller turning radius
  • Capacity – Will the scooter support your weight, now and in the future?
  • Terrain – Do you intend to navigate difficult terrains? Four wheels will provide you with extra power and stability
  • Mobility Accessories – Do you want to include accessories in your scooter, like canopies for rain protection or storage for crutches or Oxygen Tanks?
  • Price – What is your budget?

With mobility scooters, individuals with a disability can get around to the places they want and need to go in a safe and secure way. The secure features prevent and protect them from accidents and indeed increase their movement on wheels, and provide them a uniquely comfortable travel experience.

To add to the comfort of the scooter, there are many customizable options available to suit anyone’s lifestyle. Options range from special seat sizes and styles, storage holders for beverages, canes, or even oxygen tanks if needed. There are also variable speed ranges and battery sizes that may be offered as choices for customizing your mobility device.
