-- Features to look for in mobility scooter and wheelchair lifts
Independence is something everyone values greatly. But, this was denied for wheelchair bound persons until recently. Thanks to technology; the innovations like mobility scooters and wheelchair lifts have made this situation a thing of the past. However, to get the most from these advancements in the field, you should know what to look for when making a purchase.
Shopping for mobility scooter/wheelchair lifts
Buying something like a stair lift or a mobile scooter may appear to be a complicated process. Your options are truly vast here. But, a bit of research can do wonders for you. See to it that your choice model has the following features.
Your requirement is the first concern you should address when buying a disability-related device. The same applies to stair lifts. Here are some suggestions for your consideration.
1. A spacious platform
This advice may apply to commercial buildings. Make sure that the lift you buy has a large platform designed to accommodate all types of wheelchairs.
2. A non-slippery ramp
The feature deserves utmost importance if you are concerned of the safety of the wheelchair user. Consult with a reliable mobility products dealer. The expert will guide you on how to make an educated choice.
3. A durable design
Purpose is the thing which comes to play when determining the design of the lift you should buy. But, if you want it to last long, go for the one designed for both indoor and outdoor use.
The controls should be easy to operate; large illuminated displays are highly recommended. You should also look for automatic folding facility and an emergency stop.
Buying the mobility scooter too is not that difficult. All you need to do is to follow the guidelines given below.
1. Where do you want to use it?
Decide where you will use the device. If you intend to use it indoors, have a clear understanding of the layout of your home. This will help you determine if modifications like stair lifts have to be made to make things easier for you.
2. Road or pavement?
Know that mobile scooters are not meant for long journeys. But, you may want to use one on the road to perform errands and other small task. In such an instance, buy a large device with a maximum speed limit of 8 MPH. The smaller variant with 4 MPH limit is designed only for use on pavements.
3. The weight
The maximum weight your device can carry too should deserve utmost importance when making a purchase. Consider your bodyweight along with the things you plan to carry with you. Remember, the more weight you want to carry, the more strain it has to endure.
If you are someone who travels a lot, you will have to carry your scooter wherever you go. Go for a model which is easy to disassemble and store in your car.
Finally, be willing to spend a bit. Mobility scooter and wheelchair lifts are designed to last long. Investing in quality will pay you well in the long run.
