Scooters are becoming increasingly popular among the elderly. Scooters are useful for individuals who can walk short distances but need help for long distances. Most scooters have rear wheel drive and front wheel steering. Even though scooters have been around for some time, they have gotten even better. The power of the batteries and the speed at which they recharge are the most important changes we have seen with this technology. Specifically, power seats, flip-back arms, adjustable bases, gear drive systems that provide 40 miles to a charge, and attractive colors are enhancements found in today’s scooters.
Many elderly patients like scooters since they provide a very comfortable ride because they absorb shock. Most can achieve speeds of up to four miles per hour. Scooters are steered with a handlebar or push-button controls. Some scooters disassemble easily for transportation in the trunk of a vehicle. The elderly particularly need to pay attention to how heavy a scooters is if they, or someone else, will have to lift it in and out of a car. The best gauge is to determine if you can lift the largest, heaviest part when the chair is disassembled.
