How Scooters Help Seniors Stay Independent

Maintaining mobility is crucial for our quality of life. It enables us to perform daily activities with ease (sometimes without realizing it), stay independent, and engage in various physical activities. As we age, our mobility declines due to various reasons including: lack of exercise, injuries, and general physical decline. Limited mobility can lead to a sedentary lifestyle, which further deteriorates the physical and mental health of seniors and overall quality of life.

How Mobility Scooters Are a Beneficial Tool for Seniors

The scooter is a helpful tool for seniors to stay mobile. Scooters give seniors the ability to:

  • enhance independence
  • improve physical activity
  • provide a safe and secure way to move around
  • make room for more social engagement
  • access all areas of home/space

Seniors can live more independently in their own homes when they have access to a mobility scooter or motorized power chair. We offer a wide variety of mobility scooters from 3-wheeled scooters to heavy duty scooters to accommodate almost anyone’s needs! Go take a look at what we have to offer and give our Mobility Specialists a call at 1-800-790-1635 if you have any questions!

Enhance Independence: Our mobility scooters offer seniors increased freedom and independence. With these scooters, they can navigate their surroundings without heavily relying on others for help.

Improve Physical Activity: Although scooters aren’t used as a piece of an equipment to work out with, they do allow you to physically cover more ground and go further distances. Meaning, you can go on long walks with friends and family without feeling exhausted. Incorporating even just small amounts of physical activity into your routine can improve muscle strength, cardiovascular health, and joint flexibility.

Provide a Safe and Secure Way to Move Around: Balance issues are common among seniors, making walking a potentially risky activity. Mobility scooters provide a stable and secure way to move around, reducing the risk of falls. With advancements in technology, our mobility scooters offer features like improved battery life, different adjustable components, and enhanced safety features, making them a dependable and powerful tool to use to move around.

Make Room for More Social Engagement: Not being able to move around like we used to can sometimes lead us to feeling isolated and alone. The good news is that with an AmeriGlide scooter, elderly individuals can continue to go to events like Bingo night and have a sense of community and friendship.

Access All Levels of Home/Space: Mobility scooters are designed to be easily maneuverable and versatile, allowing anyone to be able to use them. They can be used both in indoor and outdoor settings. Our scooters navigate through tight spaces with ease, enabling them to move effortlessly from one space to another.

No matter what you may need a mobility scooter for, we have the scooter for you! Visit our inventory of mobility scooters here.
