Getting out on Your Mobility Scooter over Winter

Winter mobility scooter

You might be tempted to lock your mobility scooter away over the winter months, thinking that the inclement weather will cause more trouble than it’s worth. If you do decide to forget about your scooter until the weather improves, try to store it indoors if you have the space. Also be sure to fully charge the batteries before detaching them from your mobility scooter and storing them indoors somewhere dry. Don’t forget to charge them every few weeks to keep them active until you decide to get your scooter out of storage.

For some people, however, a scooter is an indispensable aid to their daily lives and they simply cannot afford to go without over winter. So, how can you still use your mobility scooter when temperatures start to drop?

Trevor Grange has been involved in the design and development of mobility scooters for many years and has witnessed the progression of the scooter from its basic beginnings right through to the sleek and sophisticated models you can enjoy today through CareCo. Trevor first became interested in mobility products when his Sister was born with Cerebral Palsy. She is now thriving into her 50’s. Having someone in the family who benefits personally from this industry I think gives Trevor an edge when it comes to functionality of the products.
