Spring is finally on the way and with it can come unpredictable weather. While you’re busy spring cleaning, it might also be time to consider some mobility scooter accessories to help you with everyday conveniences.
At Life Mobility, we want to ensure you can get out and about on your mobility scooter with confidence and ease. We know finding exactly what you need can be time consuming, so to save you some trouble, we have narrowed down the essential scooter accessories suitable for all weather.
1. Rear Scooter Carry Bag
Wherever you are headed, chances are you may need to carry a few things, whether it be extra clothing or the weekly shopping.
To avoid any of your belongings getting lost, damaged or broken, Rear Carry Bags are perfect for storage. They can hold up to 40 litres but most importantly they’re waterproof!
2) Sun Canopy
A Sun Canopy is a sensible option to protect yourself from harsh UV rays. They simply attach onto the top of a standard rear carrier bag for sunny days and can easily be removed when not required.
Please note, sun shades are only designed to protect you from the sun, not the rain!
3) Mobile Phone Holder
We’re all prone to panicking when we can’t find our phones. A mobile phone holder keeps your phone in plain sight.
The holder is easy to attach, reposition and adjust with a strong and secure grip to ensure it stays in place. With many scooters now featuring an integrated USB port, you can even keep it charged on the go!
4) Water Bottle Holder
It’s important for good health and well-being to stay hydrated throughout all seasons. A water bottle holder allows easy access to your drink bottle when you’re on the go.
They are easy to attach with a strong, secure grip and adjustable to most bottle sizes.
5) Rain Protection
Sun-showers and rain can still catch you off guard in the early stages of Spring! A Scooter Mac will protect you from rain and comes with a fleece lining for extra warmth, as well as reflective tape for safety.
For warmer days, a lightweight Vinyl Poncho is large enough to keep you and your scooter dry during unexpected showers.
6) Visibility Flag
Safety always comes first. A Visibility Flag is most essential as it alerts traffic and pedestrians to you and your mobility scooter.
We strongly recommend a safety flag for all scooter users.
Mobility scooter theft is a growing trend and insurance companies are reporting more incidents. Some insurers now require the scooter to be locked in public to be covered.
Keys do not provide a theft deterrent because most scooters can be placed in neutral and rolled away. Scooter Locks are lightweight, simple to use and easy to carry with you.
8) Scooter Cover
Ensure your scooter is protected whenever you store it away. A Scooter Cover is ideal for outdoor or partially protected storage areas.
The heavy-duty, water resistant material provides protection from the rain, while the tie straps hold your cover on securely in windy weather.
At Life Mobility, we aim to empower people living with a disability or limited mobility to lead active and independent lives. While these are just some of the scooter accessories we suggest, we offer a wider range of products that you can view here.
