Mobility Scooters Alleviate Transportation Woes For The Mobility Challenged

  1. 1. Mobility Scooters Alleviate Transportation Woes for the Mobility Challenged<br />Mobility scooters provide power wheelchair style options and features which make mobility scooters an outstanding means of transportation for those who have sufficient arm strength and upper body balance but require some assistance. <br />Image source: wikipedia.org<br />www.The-Scooter-Center.com/mobility-scooters/<br />
  2. 2. www.The-Scooter-Center.com<br />Elderly people, and those who <br />have progressive conditions that challenge their ability to walk, appreciate and benefit from the assistance and convenience of a handicap scooter. Users of the mobility scooter can normally get around to some degree, however, they have increased difficulty over long distances or going up slopes.<br />www.The-Scooter-Center.com/mobility-scooters/<br />
  3. 3. www.The-Scooter-Center.com<br />Mr. Alan Thieme of Bridgeport, Michigan, built the first mobility scooter in 1968. He designed this front wheel drive scooter to help out a family member with multiple sclerosis reclaim some of their independent mobility.<br />www.The-Scooter-Center.com/mobility-scooters/<br />
  4. 4. www.The-Scooter-Center.com<br />The basic components of even the most recent mobility scooters are just two rear wheels plus a seat above them, a flat area upon which to put the feet that also supports the seat and battery, and handlebars or tiller to steer one or two front wheels. There are some gasoline powered mobility scooters in the market, though the greatest number of those produced are electric.<br />www.The-Scooter-Center.com/mobility-scooters/<br />
  5. 5. www.The-Scooter-Center.com<br />The most popular electric mobility scooters operate with one or two batteries onboard. If a rider desires greater power to overcome slopes as well as steep hills, you will be better equipped with two batteries that will dispense more energy than one. The batteries may be charged with a standard charger which joins to a normal electrical outlet.<br />www.The-Scooter-Center.com/mobility-scooters/<br />
  6. 6. www.The-Scooter-Center.com<br />The steering column is known as the tiller. The tiller controls forward, reverse and speed through a thumb paddle, finger controls or a switch. Scooters are obtainable with front wheel drive or rear wheel drive. Most commonly, front wheel drive mobility scooters will support an individual up to 250 lbs in weight, and are more handy when indoors because of their smaller size.<br />www.The-Scooter-Center.com/mobility-scooters/<br />
  7. 7. www.The-Scooter-Center.com<br />Rear wheel drive mobility scooters may be used both outdoors and indoors and are able to support a load of up to 350 lbs. Also there are rear wheel drive heavy duty mobility scooters, that can support individuals up to 500 lbs.<br />www.The-Scooter-Center.com/mobility-scooters/<br />
  8. 8. www.The-Scooter-Center.com<br />As scooters typically provide automatic braking, coasting is not an alternative. You have got to make use of the finger, thumb or switch style controls to be in control of all movement. You will want to depress and release the controls smoothly to gradually increase and decrease speed. Also there is typically a control that will let you set the maximum speed motor scooter as well.<br />www.The-Scooter-Center.com/mobility-scooters/<br />
  9. 9. www.The-Scooter-Center.com<br />Mobility scooters will not be demanding to operate and control as long as you have enough upper body strength and coordination and the scooters can be taken apart fairly easily making them convenient to load into the trunk of an automobile for a jaunt with friends and family. Everyone with systemic or disabling physical conditions that can stand and walk a few steps, control the steering tiller and sit upright without torso support will be pleased about the assistance of a mobility scooter and the sense of independence it can provide.<br />www.The-Scooter-Center.com/mobility-scooters/<br />
