Maintaining your independence is often one of the primary goals for seniors and people living with limited mobility. The right mobility device — whether it’s a wheelchair, scooter, powerchair, walker, or rollator — will allow you to better navigate your surroundings and lead a more active life.
Many modern scooters and powerchairs also come equipped with a wealth of high-tech features to make life easier for caregivers and loved ones. For example, the innovative WHILL Model Ci2 electric wheelchair can be driven remotely using a smartphone app. This allows the caregiver to control the chair while walking alongside the user.
If you think a mobility device may be right for you, ask yourself: What type of device will work best with my lifestyle? Do I need a device full-time or would a rental be better? And will I be using the device indoors, outdoors, or both?
Once you’ve decided to invest in a mobility device, the first step is to speak to your doctor. They can often write a prescription that will allow insurance to cover the costs. After you have the prescription, you can then reach out to a mobility retailer to facilitate the purchase.
