Wheelchairs have evolved over time to give greater comfort and convenience to people who have limited mobility. From simple manual operations, wheelchairs can now be operated automatically with just a few clicks of the button, allowing its riders to perform daily mundane tasks a lot easier and faster.
However, the geniuses that made automatic wheelchairs have also come up with a new invention that is expected to trump wheelchairs in the years to come — electric scooters. Not only are electric scooters easier to use and operate compared to wheelchairs but they are also more chic and stylish that it’s not really embarrassing to go around town in it.
Perhaps the biggest advantage of owning an electric scooter is that it takes you to places farther than the wheelchair can. A wheelchair is okay to use if you’re just inside the house or in a small enclosed area. But if you want to go to the grocery store or the nearby park, an electric scooter is your ally. While it does not go as fast as gas powered scooters, it is fast nevertheless and can even travel for several miles before needing another recharge.
In addition, with electric scooters, all you have to do is plug it in to store power. Its battery life lasts depending on its usage, but, still, it remains better by several points over wheelchairs.
The good news is, with the growing demand for electric scooters, prices are also starting to go down. You can buy an electric scooter for as low as $580, and can even get one for a cheaper price if you scour auctions, sales, and used electric scooter offers. Of course, whenever you purchase something, check it first for signs of damage and find out where it has been before you make any decision.
The convenience afforded by an electric scooter is something an ordinary wheelchair cannot parallel. Even automatic wheelchairs still cannot hold a candle to electric scooters.
