How To Choose The Right Mobility Equipment

Mobility equipment can be a big investment in your quality of life.

The right equipment can help you become more independent and increase your safety.

The faulty equipment can be a hassle.


To choose the mobility equipment that is right for you, ask yourself these questions:


What is my budget?

Your budget for mobility equipment may mean the difference between renting and buying a scooter or a power wheelchair, or a stairlift versus an elevator. Before you begin the purchasing process, always know what you are willing to spend and if your insurance will cover any costs.


What are my current abilities?

Before purchasing mobility equipment, be honest about your current abilities and safety.

Is walking on flat surfaces fine but taking the stairs is challenging?

A stair lift might be the right choice, but you may not need an electric scooter.

You may also talk with your physician or a physical therapist about what mobility equipment might be right for your needs.


What do I want to be able to do?

Now that you have thought about your abilities, what would you like to be able to do safely?

If you want to use your electric wheelchair outdoors, you’ll need to ensure it has the right tires and motor.

If you want to take a shower without worrying about falls, you’ll need a zero-entry shower with grab bars and a chair.


What are the benefits and limitations of the mobility equipment I am considering?

Every piece of mobility equipment has pros and cons.

It would help if you learned as much about the equipment you are considering before you purchase it.


You may want to know things like:

Total cost, including installation if applicable

Power requirements or battery life

Any weight restrictions

How it is used

Any special features or functions you can add


If possible, you should try out the mobility equipment you want to purchase first.

A quality mobility equipment vendor can help you determine which products are right for your goals.
