A folding mobility scooter can have a positive impact on so many people’s lives for a number of reasons. It gives freedom to those who may struggle with mobility and can’t move about as easily as they used to. People lose their independence for a variety of reasons, with illness quite often being a cause. Arthritis is a debilitating condition which is long term and progressive. It causes pain, swelling and stiffness in joints. It commonly affects your hands, feet and wrists, but it can cause problems in other parts of your body too. These issues can also lead to regular tiredness. This then culminates in a reduction of independent mobility and an ability to achieve goals during the day.
Folding Mobility Scooter
People who suffer from arthritis often rely on a folding mobility scooter to help them continue living an active life. With the right kind of mobility scooter, the fatigue this condition causes can be eased as walking to visit friends or the shops can be partly replaced by driving. Using a mobility scooter outside of the home can also give you more energy to walk around the house or the garden. This way, the time and distance you walk can be managed more effectively and discomfort can be reduced whilst still remaining active. If you do have arthritis, it is important to choose a mobility scooter that has ample leg room and a supportive seat. A spacious folding mobility scooter provides room to stretch your stiff legs and avoid your knees having to be cramped.
Last week was ‘Arthritis Week.’ This is a week which happens each year, with charities raising awareness of the condition. The aim is to try and educate those who don’t suffer just what is like to live with the condition. It is also to let those who have it know they don’t have to deal with the pain alone.
