Help My Mobility representatives pitched up on Station Road in New Milton this Tuesday, 13 August, to get your views about the benefits of owning a mobility scooter. Armed with a camera and microphone, the team interviewed shoppers who passed by on their vehicles. They received lots of interest from local residents, and many of the scooter users were more than happy to talk about their experiences, and share them with you.The team aimed to gain an understanding of the various factors and issues which need to be taken into account when buying or looking to buy a mobility scooter, and the responses received were both interesting and varied, depending largely on the requirements of the user. What was clear was that each individual was clearly benefitting from the freedom given by owning such a vehicle. However, personal preference for certain features such as ride height, speed and storage capabilities show that the choice must be tailored to the individual needs of the owner.To see/hear what users had to say, visit our videos page.Those who took part in the recorded questionnaire were given a complimentary high-visibility jacket, to enhance the road safety of the participant, as the winter nights look set to start drawing in.For a more in-depth look at mobility scooters and the benefits and drawbacks of each model, why not check out our user recommendations and feedback pages.
