Suffering from pain and a loss of mobility is a challenge as we age, but it doesn't have to be the end of the road. In fact, by accepting one's limitations and making the necessary adjustments, a whole new road can open up ahead, courtesy of mobility scooters, walkers and wheelchairs.

Even fiercely independent people need to make compromises sometimes. Battling pain in isolation isn't the solution to anyone's problems, particularly when mobility scooters and other aids are purpose-built to assist you in retaining your independence. A lot has changed in the world of mobility equipment during the past decade, with many advantages for today's seniors. Here are just a few benefits of mobility scooters.

Easy to operate: Progressive design improvements include comfortable use for people with limited upper body strength. Learning to drive a mobility scooter is a cinch for almost anyone.

Accepted on public transport: Mobility scooter public transport and taxi options are improving. You can now travel greater distances and bring your mobility scooter along for the ride. The majority of airlines also accept mobility scooters as oversize luggage, opening up great new travel options.

Providing independence for daily activities: You don't have to forgo all activities. You can get around the home, travel to the shops, meet up with other people and even take your ride for a spin around the block simply because you can. However, don't neglect essential physical therapy just because you have newfound freedom.

No licence or registration required: Mobility scooters can only be used in pedestrian zones and are not required to be registered, except in Queensland, where free registration is offered.

Enjoy accessible public spaces: All councils are upgrading and improving accessibility options for public spaces. You can remain an active community member and take part in many activities.

Wide mobility scooter range: These vehicles compensate for an inability to walk long distances due to disability or ill health. The mobility scooter range has evolved, from powerchairs for getting around home, to 3 wheel motorbike-style mobility scooters that look seriously cool out on the town.

Mobility scooters are great news for formerly housebound people. However, they are not the only answer. For some people, traditional walkers and wheelchairs are the safe and sensible option, particularly modern products designed with user-friendly innovations. We are all individuals and there is no one-size-fits-all solution, but rest assured there is a mobility scooter, walker or wheelchair that is just right for you.

Nothing compares to independence and freedom of movement, so instead of giving in to a sedentary lifestyle, it could be time to get with the program and reinvent a new and better version of yourself. Maximise your potential for an active and social life with a mobility scooter, walker or wheelchair, and reap the rewards of independence, better health and a whole new perspective on life. Beware of cheap imitations and speak to the industry experts regarding your specific mobility needs.
