Life Experiences with Travel Buggy

As we excitedly announced in our last blog, Advantage Home Health Solutions is currently running a brand new promotion. We are offering up to 40% off our mobility scooters and travel power chairs! This new campaign includes brand new commercials that are airing on both television and online. We want to give as many people as possible the ability to take advantage of the savings we’re offering. However, that isn’t our only goal.

Our top objective is to help older adults to reclaim their independence. Many years of experience have taught the Advantage Home Health Solutions team that motorized scooters for elderly people are among the best ways to assist them with their mobility challenges. These fantastic solutions offer them the independence and freedom needed to navigate their daily lives with ease.

Mobility scooters provide ease with everyday tasks.

We each have daily tasks to complete. However, for older adults, conditions such as arthritis, osteoporosis and general weakness can make supposedly simple tasks fairly difficult.

As Health Canada explains, osteoporosis is often the culprit for wrist, spine and hip fractures. “Bone fractures occurring in these areas resulting from a fall from standing height or less are called fragility fractures, and are evidence of osteoporosis,” says their website, “Mortality is significantly increased after hip fracture, and fewer than 50 % suffering from this injury experience functional recovery, and many are permanently disabled.”

Do you fill your days with running errands, visiting friends and enjoying outdoor activities? Scooters for older people provide convenient ways to move around independently. They offer stability, comfort and safety features that cater to the specific needs of seniors. Mobility scooters for seniors allow them to maintain active lifestyles and the retention of freedom.

Mobility scooters can assist with post-surgery recovery.

It’s well expected that, after a surgery, one’s mobility can be severely limited. In many cases, everyday tasks such as walking to the kitchen or going to the bathroom can be very challenging.

HealthLink BC reminds us that a top concern for seniors after surgery is pain control. “Inflammation or nerve injury from the surgery can cause pain,” alerts their site, “Your doctor may give you more than one medicine for pain. Often opioids are given. In some cases, you may use a pain pump so that it’s easy to get pain medicine right when you need it.”

Electric scooters for elderly adults provide a practical solution. They enable individuals who have just had surgery to move around their homes and communities with minimal effort. Utilizing this mobility solution, an older person can speed up the recovery process. A mobility scooter significantly reduces the risk of falls and overexertion. A senior who recently had an operation can more easily focus on healing and regaining strength.

Mobility scooters lessen the burden of chronic conditions.

For older individuals living with such chronic conditions as multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease or spinal cord injuries, mobility can be pretty difficult.

“Parkinson’s disease (PD) can affect community mobility in many ways,” explain Karlee Pringle and Samantha Lau on behalf of the Michael J. Fox Foundation, “Walking may be limited by decreased balance, freezing of gait (a temporary inability to move) or dyskinesia (involuntary movement). Aspects of the environment, such as uneven sidewalk surfaces, weather conditions and neighbourhood walkability, can also affect accessibility and ability to engage in outdoor activities.”

A handicap electric scooter offers a means of independence and mobility since it is designed with features like adjustable seats, easy-to-use controls and sturdy construction. A top service provided by this great mobility solution is the accommodation of different mobility needs. Mobility scooters for seniors provide greater empowerment. They enable their users to participate in daily activities and social interactions without relying on others for assistance.

Mobility scooters allow you to travel the world.

For many seniors, vacationing is totally out of the question. But that isn’t very fair, is it? Just because a person is enduring mobility issues, that’s no reason he or she can’t travel the world. Many scooters are designed to be portable. This allows them to be easily transported in cars, planes or trains. These motorized scooters open up a world of possibilities for seniors and individuals with disabilities. Why not explore new destinations and enjoy vacations with greater ease and comfort? Travel mobility scooters can help you to do just that!

The City 2 Plus Travel Buggy Power Wheelchair is the perfect example. This easy-to-handle power wheelchair has a total weight of 65 lbs. including its batteries. It breaks down into three very manageable pieces so nearly anyone can lift it. Therefore, if you plan on vacationing in the months to come, you can be assured of a mobility solution that is easy to take along with you. Why shouldn’t you enjoy a fun trip with your loved ones?

“Mobility — the ability to move around freely — is important for healthy aging,” writes Léa Ravensbergen on, “It is a basic human need associated with independence, health and well-being. Older adults need to remain mobile to meet their daily needs and to participate in social life.” In Calgary, mobility scooters are an ideal solution if you struggle to walk long distances. Some mobility scooters are even small and nimble enough for indoor use.

Mobility scooters are for anyone who experiences joint pain or other issues that limit mobility. They’re not just for elderly people.
