There is nothing quite like a mobility scooter for helping people with disabilities. Mobility scooters help people to gain, or regain, a form of independence that allows them to participate in many activities such as socialising, travelling, shopping and sports activities. Just about every town has a mobility scooter club and disabled rambling clubs are also common.
There are many different ways for mobility scooter users to connect with each other and share their experiences. Online groups such as Facebook can be accessed, or in person clubs are also available. Some clubs are very helpful explaining how to use mobility scooters safely. If organising a local group yourself, you will need a nice meeting place either commercial or in someone’s home.

Advantages of a Mobility Scooter
Socialising and Sports
No matter which way you choose to share your experiences with other users, the advantages of using a mobility scooter are numerous. Being mobile means being able to socialise with family friends in a number of different environments. It’s so important for disabled people to keep in touch with people they know as it will benefit their overall wellbeing. Mobility scooter users can also participate in sports activities by joining classes that offer seated aerobics or weight lifting for instance. This will help to keep the users flexible and strong, and offer a chance to make new friends.
Shopping and Travel
Mobility scooters also allow disabled users to browse around shopping malls and to travel around the country in the UK. The Uk has laws in place that give disabled people the right of access to public buildings, and even public transport is becoming more and more scooter/wheelchair friendly. Just to make sure a place you wish to visit will be accessible for scooters, it is best to contact the place in advance to make sure it has step free access or lifts.
Mobility scooters are a lifesaver for disabled people. They allow mobility so that they can get on with their lives and enjoy themselves to the full.
