Through these Buyer’s Guides we feel we can help people choose a product that will ultimately improve their health and well-being
Phoenix, AZ (Vocus) July 1, 2010
Choosing the right mobility scooter requires navigation of component options as well careful consideration of the user’s lifestyle and physical capabilities. Allegro Medical has published three Buyer’s Guides to help with this often tricky process. The first guide describes the Types of Mobility Scooters, including 3 and 4 wheel units and the heavy-duty or travel versions of each. This guide provides a brief description of each type, such as the company’s line of 3 wheel travel scooters, and more.
The second guide, Mobility Scooters – 3 Wheel or 4 Wheel, differentiates 3 wheel scooters, which provide better maneuverability in tight spaces, from 4 wheel models that are more stable but not suitable for use in narrow or tight spaces. Several advantages and disadvantages of each are outlined. This guide also describes considerations such as where and when the scooter will be used, weight capacity requirements, battery life, maneuverability, speed, ease of transport and available leg room.
Valerie Paxton, co-owner of Allegro Medical and author of the Buyer’s Guides, said, “There are important considerations that shoppers might not even think of. I wrote these guides to help narrow their options so that they can make informed choices that take into account their capabilities, size, lifestyle and use of the scooter.”
In the third Buyer’s Guide, 5 Things to Consider when Choosing a Mobility Scooter, Paxton lists five important questions and detailed answers that clarify major considerations a shopper must make. These include the rider’s physical requirements, weight the scooter must carry including things like shopping bags or oxygen tanks, where the scooter will be ridden, how it will be transported as well as requirements for health insurance coverage. This guide also points customers to a power wheelchair as a better option if the rider’s legs must be elevated or it is difficult for them to operate controls with their hands.
“Through these Buyer’s Guides we feel we can help people choose a product that will ultimately improve their health and well-being,” added Paxton, “You don’t want to end up with a scooter that is uncomfortable or inadequate. Remember, research is important, as preconceived assumptions about scooter capabilities are being shattered by advances in materials, engineering and battery life.”
Allegro’s choice of mobility scooters ranges from small, lightweight 3 wheel scooters to 4 wheel heavy duty scooters that are rugged, hold more weight and are stable enough to handle different kinds of outdoor terrain. Allegro also features hundreds of other buyer’s guides and blogs on various health, therapeutic and caregiving topics. All Allegro Buyer’s Guides are accessible from the AllegroMedical.com homepage as well as from related categories and subcategories throughout the site.
