FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

-- If you are in a wheelchair or you have limited mobility, it doesn’t necessarily mean that you have to be completely dependent on someone else to move around. Besides the wheelchair you can use for short distances, you can use mobility scooters or even adapt a car with a hand control system in order to become able to drive yourself wherever you want. You just need to be willing and have patience to find the most suitable model for you and learn how to use it safely and comfortably.
The enterprises that have dedicated their time to developing equipment for physically challenged people came up in time with numerous models of hand control systems, scooters, as well as adapted vehicles. Different designs were created to meet all sorts of requirements. Certain types of mobility scooters, for example, are suitable for those who are rather slim and not very tall, while others are more appropriate for people who have a more generous weight. Also, some are easier to handle indoors, where you have less space and numerous obstacles, and others were made especially for outdoor use. All these aspects have to be kept in mind when you go to a Better Life Mobility Center to choose such an item.
When it comes to hand control adaptive equipment things can be even more complicated.
Depending on your abilities and your preferences, you can choose between floor mounted systems or the type of equipment that is installed by the steering wheel, on the left side. Also, there are a number of types of grips from which you will have to choose. In order to take a wise decision, you need to get to know your strengths and weaknesses very well, but it is also important to talk to a driving rehabilitation specialist. Otherwise, driving might be way more difficult than it should be, not to mention that it can prove unsafe. Taking into account the fact that you want to increase your degree of independence when you purchase such a system from a Better Life Mobility center, and not make yourself more vulnerable, you really should take your time before making a final choice.
There is one more thing you should not forget when you buy a scooter or a hand control adaptive equipment from a Better Life Mobility Center, and which your friends and your family should keep in mind too: such devices are designed for persons who deal with a disability and require training to be used appropriately. It is not a good idea to drive using a hand control system unless you require it and, therefore, you have been instructed on how to use it. Even if someone has a regular driving license, they would not be able to drive using the hand control safely without the proper training. The equipment normally has a special option through which it can be deactivated, so to speak, so there should be no problem for another person to use the vehicle in the regular manner even after the hand control is installed. As long as that is clear, both you and those close to you will be very happy for having chosen to mount the equipment.
