If you don’t have access to a vehicle, a mobility scooter can help you get around outdoors with relative ease. You can store them outside (under a plastic cover), they don’t require insurance (although we’d recommend it), and there are no formal restrictions on which roads you can take them on.
However, because they’re quite large, they’re not suitable for indoor use. If you’d like a motored chair than you can use both indoors and outdoors, a powerchair could be the answer. They’re much smaller and more manoeuvrable, and offer more options for customisation (comfort seating, powered positioning options, lights etc.). However, because of this, they’re also the more expensive option.
‘This is just to say a big thank you for getting the chair to my father so quickly. It has made such a difference to him… He has a big smile on his face when he is in it. I never thought we would get such an improvement at this stage of his Alzheimer’s, but it means the world to see a bit more of Dad still there.’Mrs Tinkley
‘A big thank you for a superb job with my sister’s chair. I’m pleased to say she is now so much more comfortable and appears to be a lot happier. Once again my thanks to all that were involved.’Mrs Locker
‘It is now five weeks since we received our riser recliners and they are proving very comfortable. Thank you for all the time and care you gave to making sure we bought the right ones for us.’Mr and Mrs Smith
