Mobility is something that can erode slowly over time, to the point where you might not realize how much your quality of life has changed because the change was so gradual. It might start with avoiding stairs or using a cane more often and advance to avoiding some activities because you're plumb tired from walking around even if there are no stairs.

A mobility scooter can help in surprising ways. Not only can it help you get from Point A to Point B, but it doesn't expose your body to wear and tear like some other mobility aids might. Here are some important factors to consider from our friends at Juro's Pharmacy, Health and Wellness:

1) Mobility scooters can help you maintain your independence. You can go almost anywhere without relying on someone to push you in a wheelchair. The controls are fairly adaptable so they can be customized to your needs and you can keep going where you want when you want.

2) You'll experience less fatigue using a mobility scooter. You might think of a scooter as something for people who cannot move around, but many people use it to ensure they can go farther and longer than they otherwise would be able to. That means you'll have more energy to do your favorite things and spend less time planning ahead.

3) You're less likely to experience further injury with a mobility scooter than with any other mobility assistance device. Did you know that long-term use of canes, walkers, and crutches can affect your body's alignment? With a mobility scooter, you're seated and using controls, which minimizes the wear and tear on your body.
