When it comes to healthy, joyful, independent living, mobility makes all the difference. Walking under your own power is emotionally validating as well as physically healthy, but there may be times when we need a motorized mobility aid. That’s where electric scooters come in.
Fortunately, today’s medical scooters provide comfortable, reliable mobility in a variety of sizes and price points. And for Tampa mobility needs, Helios carries a great selection of mobility scooters to buy or rent. We also have a knowledgeable in-store staff to help you find the exactly what you need and prefer—and even order the mobility scooter specially for you if we don’t currently have it in our store.
What Are the Advantages of Mobility Scooters in Tampa?
Electronic scooters are a great solution for people with some mobility limitations and/or intermittent energy concerns. They allow you to shop at the grocery store, walk your dog, or move around the park with your family, even if you’re sometimes unstead on your feet or you’re just a little tired that day. Mobility scooters simultaneously provide you with the freedom to stand up and step away from the scooter when needed or desired.
Remember that the ADA requires public spaces to accommodate these mobility tools with gently graded ramps, lifts, and other accessibility considerations.
What Should I Consider When Looking for a Mobility Scooter?
A mobility scooter should function as an extension of yourself. Therefore it should allow you to have the maximum freedom of movement while also not requiring too much extra worry or consideration when going about your day.
Take into account how often you will need your scooter and in what settings. And with each scooter you try, think about these factors:
- Secure, comfortable seating
- Easy to sit down into and stand up out of
- Variable speed
- Mobility over varying surfaces and slopes
- Steering response
- Battery life
