6 Benefits of using mobility scooters and powerchairs

The list of reasons for why you may need to use a mobility scooter is nearly endless, regardless of the reason, you will find that choosing to use them will have a positive impact in your life. You will be able to get out and about and complete small tasks on your own, such as going down to the shops to get some milk for a cuppa instead of having to wait for a carer, family or friend to drop some milk of or take you to the shops. You will be able to part take in your local community and be overall more independent. The most important thing is that you can rely on your gopher or powerchair, this will make you use it more frequently and with confidence.

Cheap to run and charge

Unlike motor vehicles, mobility-scooters and powered wheelchairs are electric. That means that the only running cost will be plugging them in to a regular powerpoint to charge.To ensure that your gopher or powerchair is always ready to be used and to ensure you get the most out of your batteries, it's important to charge your mobility scooter regularly. Batteries perform best when they are being used and charged at regular intervals. Most importantly try never to let your batteries go completely flat, as this will damage your batteries. If you know you won't be home for a prolonged period, simply ask the person who comes to check the mail and the plants to put the mobility scooter in charge too. The batteries can't be "over-charged".

Simple to Operate

Mobility-scooters and powered wheelchairs are intuitive and simple to operate and manoeuvre.  Consider your surroundings and the primary use for the mobility-scooter or powerchair before you make a purchase, this will ensure that you pick a piece of equipment that is suitable for your needs. Take into consideration the condition of footpaths and roads in your local area, hills and battery range. Try and pick a machine which as an easily adjustable speed control as this will allow you to use it in more diverse environments.

Increased Independence

With a mobility scooter or power chair, you won't have to rely on other people to get out and about. It is a great feeling to know that you can leave the house whenever you want. You will also find that you will undertake more tasks by yourself and with more energy as you can ride your mobility device to the shops, do your shopping, without being exhausted from the walk to the shops and not have to worry how you will carry your purchases home. Completing tasks independently and successfully is an essential part of mental well being and maintaining a positive self-image.

A Scooter for Every Need

We are all different, with our unique needs, wants and abilities. This is especially true when it comes to mobility devices. That's why Bluesky Healthcare carries a wide range of different equipment from small travel scooters, to large Powerchairs to ensure we can cater for your need. If you need something lightweight and portable for everyday use that can quickly be taking with you in the boot of a car or on overseas trips our range of travel equipment and small portable machines. Medium gophers, powerchairs and electric wheelchairs are designed for longer journeys and are suitable for indoor as well as outdoor use, even on rough terrain. The larger more rugged models are aimed at longer trips and more uneven terrain. They are perfect for parks, gravel roads and steep hills.

Increased Accessibility

We are fortunate to live in a country where there is building awareness of mobility and accessibility. While there is still to be done, most large public places, shopping centres and public transport options are equipped with lifts and ramps to allow access.

Injury Prevention

Trips and falls are among the most frequent injuries reported for people that suffer from reduced mobility. Using a mobility device such as a powered wheelchair or a gopher can help you reduce the risk of falls. While it is essential to keep moving and walking, you will find that falls are more likely to happen if you are tired, having a bad day or have already exerted yourself. A mobility device can help as you can use it for longer trips and on those bad days.
