Electric mobility scooters have emerged in recent years, primarily to meet the needs of the elderly population and the trend towards environmental protection. They have become another emerging industry in the traditional wheelchair industry. In addition, major developed countries have incorporated elderly mobility aids into their policy subsidy programs to further increase the market sales of electric mobility scooters, such as the United States, which has become the country with the highest sales of electric mobility scooters due to its high social security benefits; major European countries have also shown good sales in mobility aids under their social security system and related laws and regulations.
As the population ages, the demand for electric wheelchairs among the elderly is increasing, especially for lightweight and foldable electric wheelchairs, which are favored by many elderly friends. So, what are the benefits of lightweight and foldable electric wheelchairs for the elderly? The following are several aspects:
Lightweight and foldable electric wheelchairs generally use lithium batteries, titanium alloy frames, and the entire weight is generally around 7-25 kilograms, which is about 40 kilograms lighter than traditional electric wheelchairs.
They can be carried on trips and travel with the help of the wheelchair travel suitcase bag, greatly expanding the range of activities for the elderly who have difficulty moving, and allowing them to go on outings.
Lightweight and foldable electric wheelchairs offered by power wheelchair manufacturers for the elderly generally can switch between electric and manual modes, allowing seniors to use them for assisted exercise by pushing them with the electric wheelchair or resting when tired and letting it drive automatically. An elderly person's electric mobility scooter can be used for both mobility and exercise, greatly reducing the risk of accidental falls and injuries caused by their mobility issues.
Imagine an elderly person with mobility issues hiring a caregiver, which is also a considerable expense for the household. After owning a lightweight and foldable electric wheelchair, seniors can travel freely and save on the expense of hiring a caregiver.
For the elderly with mobility issues, owning a lightweight and foldable electric mobility scooter allows them to travel freely and see new things outside, which can greatly prevent the onset of Alzheimer's disease, and have a great impact on the physical and mental health of the elderly.
Electric mobility scooters are more suitable for leisure and mobility for the elderly, disabled and other similar groups, and can be used for activities such as strolling in the park, grocery shopping, and transporting children. They are an excellent means of transportation for the elderly, and are safe to drive.
