Your mobility scooter is so much more than a means of getting around – and mobility scooter accessories can enhance this experience for you. Are you aware of all the different types of accessories available to you?
In this article, we will explore a variety of add-ons you can get for your scooter, so you can see how to level up your vehicle.
Accessories for Mobility Scooters
Mobility Scooter Bags
Instead of holding onto your bag while travelling, mobility scooter bags have been designed to specifically fit your vehicle. Whether they fit on your handlebars, front basket or on the back of the chair, they will keep your hands free for driving and offer a practical solution for when you go shopping. There are plenty of designs to suit your needs, so your storage requirements are met and you can travel in style.
Mobility Scooter Covers
As mentioned in our previous article, getting your mobility scooter wet can prove to be problematic – but there are ways of protecting it against the elements. If you haven’t already got an enclosed mobility scooter, you can purchase a cover separately. Regardless if you need cover every day while you’re out and about or want some protection when storing your scooter, mobility scooter covers are the perfect solution!
The universal mobility scooter canopy by Scooterpac makes sure you are always protected against the wet weather while not always have the cover over your vehicle. As the world’s first universal folding canopy, it fits nearly every kind of mobility scooter and can be easily set up when caught in a shower.
Drink, Umbrella & Walking Stick Holder for Mobility Scooter
It may not sound like a necessity, but just like mobility scooter bags, these holders will free up your hands and enable you to take everything you need on your journey. Commonly designed as a clip attachment, there are varying sizes to suit different objects such as a cup, umbrella and walking stick. This way, you can leave home knowing you’ll have a hot drink, protection from the rain, and your stick or walker when you’re to hit the path.
Your neck needs support when using your wheelchair regularly and your comfort is always key. This is why detachable headrests have been designed; as wheelchairs do not normally have a headrest, it’s great solution to make sure your neck is supported when you’re on the move.
Mobility Scooter & Wheelchair Ramps
Suitable for both mobility scooters and wheelchairs, ramps are great accessories to carry with you in case of accessibility issues. This includes overcoming a step, mounting a kerb or loading into a vehicle. Portable ramps are easily transported and you can have peace of mind that you’ll always be able to get where you need to go.
Torch or Front Light
Wheelchairs do not normally come with a torch, lamp or front light so investing in this accessory would be very useful. Improving visibility during the evening time or during misty or foggy weather conditions would open yourself up to more opportunities for adventure. Don’t let anything hold you back when you can choose from an array of wheelchair accessories.
