Mobility Scooter Trailers Deliver Greater Independence
It is estimated that around 13 per 1,000 Australians aged 18 or over used a mobility scooter, around half of whom are aged over 60.
Also known as a motorised mobility scooter, a motorised wheelchair, powered scooter, buggy or gopher, these battery-powered devices provide users with much greater capacity to live independently, enabling those who have mobility issues to undertake daily tasks or engage in social life without assistance.
However, there are some conditions applied to the use of mobility scooters, including where they can be driven. Most notably, they can’t be used on roads in the same way as a car. What this means for people with a physical disability or limited mobility is that they are limited in terms of the distances they can travel. Battery life also plays a role in this.
So what’s the solution for anyone who uses a motorised mobility scooter and needs to travel long distances?
