Elderly Scooters: What’s the Difference?
Scooters designed for older users come with various distinct features. Some of the different details a person a person may notice on electric scooters for seniors are:
Lightweight and Portable Options
An older individual will often prefer his scooter to be lightweight, yet durable. Often, he’d also appreciate if the scooter is easily portable. Such an individual can choose a foldable scooter or even one that can be disassembled and reassembled quickly without tools.
Easy-grip Handles and Controls
Many seniors have arthritis or other conditions that create discomfort when they need to have a tight grip on handles or engage in repetitive motions to operate their mobility scooter. For seniors, it’s important to make sure that the electric scooter will be easy to operate. Some older people also suffer from memory issues. All of our mobility scooters for older persons are designed to have easy operating instructions, making the learning and remembering process a breeze!
