Physically challenged individuals find it hard to travel without assistance. The phoenix scooters enable physically challenged individuals to travel independently.
For many older adults, driving a car or walking a few blocks away from home cannot be done because of physical limitations.
While many older adults cannot drive a car or walk for many blocks, this does not mean that they cannot drive mobility scooters like the phoenix scooters.
Mobility scooter is one of the best inventions in the medical field for the physically challenged. The fact that this assistive technology frees physically challenged people from being dependent on someone else to perform daily activities is a big step forward.
Benefits of Phoenix Scooters
Here are the top benefits of using the phoenix scooters:
1. Encourage independent living
A study by May et al. found that scooters were mainly used for getting to and from shops, and visiting friends and family.
2. Travel beyond one’s home
The May et al. study showed that that mobility scooters enable users to travel between two and five kilometers from their home.
3. Longer battery life
In the past, many dislike mobility scooters because of their short battery life. The phoenix scooters can travel for 15 miles at 4 miles per hour top speed without the need of recharging the battery. The great thing about the battery in phoenix scooters is that it can be removed and be charged separately from the unit.
The phoenix scooters come with safety features such as anti-tip wheels and headlight. It also comes with an ergonomic “finger-pull” throttle. This makes it easier for users who have limited strength or dexterity to operate the scooter.
5. Great maneuverability in tight spaces
The phoenix scooters with three wheels are ideal for maneuvering in tight spaces like inside the house, office or shops. The 43-inch turning radius of the phoenix scooters make it easy to maneuver in tight spaces.
