Now that you are the proud owner of a new mobility scooter there are a few accessories that you might want to consider investing in. Some not only make your scooter more comfortable and easy-to-use but also help in protecting it from the rain or the harsh rays of the sun.
Simply investing in a few accessories may be the difference between just using a scooter to get from point A to B and actually making it a fully functional part of your life.
Scooter canopies are intended to protect the user from the weather. While being fairly effective for sun protection scooter canopies are only moderately effective for protection from rain, snow, and wind.
For people who intend on storing their scooter where it may be exposed to the elements or will be using a scooter carrier on the back of their vehicle for transport a scooter, the cover is really a necessity. Certainly, if you are investing in a high-end luxury scooter it really wouldn’t make sense not to do what you can to protect it.
There are users who cannot be without a portable supply of medical oxygen when traveling by scooter and for safety and convenience an oxygen carrier is a great option. For those who need to bring a cane or walking aid with them should they plan on leaving their scooter for any length of time it is a good idea to purchase a cane carrier rather than try to drive while holding a walking aid.
Some scooters do not come with any sort of standard lighting. If this is the case and most definitely if you intend on using your scooter at night you should make sure to order a lighting package option. Safety flags are not something most people purchase when purchasing a scooter but anyone who is going to drive their scooter in parking lots or areas where there may be vehicular traffic should have one. Remember you have to take responsibility for your safety when driving a motorized vehicle.
