Exploring the Latest Technological Innovations in Folding Travel Mobility Scooters
In recent years folding mobility scooters have gone through huge changes and advancements, continually improving in order to revolutionise the way individuals with mobility challenges travel and explore the world.
In this blog, we will delve into the new cutting-edge features and their impact on the world of mobility solutions.
Mobility scooters have massively simplified control panels to simplify the experience for the user. They now have touch-sensitive panels or comfortable buttons that let users adjust speed, switch between modes, and activate different features without any hassle. We are even seeing some scooters having voice command options so that individuals with limited hand movement can operate them hands-free. This is a great step towards giving individuals more freedom and independence.
Built-in GPS Systems
One of the handiest innovations for mobility scooters is built-in GPS systems. These will allow real-time navigation capabilities which can allow the user to explore new locations confidently. These GPS can plan routes, find pathways accessible for mobility scooters, and even turn-by-turn directions! Or if your mobility scooter does not have a built-in GPS system, then have a look at a phone holder that can be easily fitted to your mobility scooter here, you can then use your phone for live directions with Google Maps, Apple Maps or Waze
Some GPSs may even have voice guidance which will add another layer of safety as it means the user can concentrate on the path ahead rather than looking down at the GPS. See this article to know why you may want to add a Bluetooth or GSM tracker to your mobility scooter for added protection
Better suspension systems have achieved a smoother and more comfortable journey. It's better for dealing with uneven terrains with the new state-of-the-art systems that effectively absorb shocks and vibrations. By using features such as adjustable shock absorbers, coil springs, or pneumatic (air-filled) tires with built-in suspension.
These displays will present the user with information such as battery life, speed, distance travelled, and even the temperature. This helps to enhance the user experience as well as contribute to the safety of the rider. Some models have simple light up displays that will give you indication of battery life and speed such as this one here. Whereas there are others that are LCD displays and can show you a little more information such as weather, mileage and error codes too like this one.
Lithium batteries are great for extended range as well as quick charging. For example, one of our folding travel mobility scooters, Ren, is equipped with a lithium-ion battery that allows it to travel 35 km on one single charge! Having lithium-ion batteries offers higher energy density, reducing the downtime between rides. This innovation is extremely convenient as it provides users with more flexibility to explore their surroundings.
If you are wanting to travel abroad with your mobility scooter then you will want a mobility scooter that has a maximum battery capacity of 300wh which you can find out more information about here. A lot of travel mobility scooters will have batteries that are under this limit such as these collections here:
These cutting-edge technologies will empower users by not only simplifying their experience but enhancing it. Whether it's exploring new places or manoeuvring through daily activities, folding travel mobility scooters equipped with these advancements are opening doors to greater independence and freedom for individuals with limited mobility.We also consistently post lots of other information that is very useful to know when you have a mobility scooter which you can find here.
