This free safety guide booklet is full of valuable tips for seniors and veterians while operating a scooter or powerchair

Quick Fact: People often live longer now, but their aging bodies don't necessarily allow them to continue doing the things they want to do. Joints become stiff and walking or even being on ones feet becomes a problem for many elderly people. Mobility Scooters are designed to take the stress off the body and enable people to carry out activities, such as shopping, and activities that those who are younger take for granted.
