There are numerous gadgets you can buy to pimp your mobility scooter and get out and about with ease, at any given time. Most, if not all, gadgets are designed to enhance the ease of use and handiness of your mobility scooter, and whilst you might get along just fine with your mobility scooter, you’ll certainly want to purchase some of these top gadgets!
Though you can buy these top gadgets online, we suggest visiting a mobility scooter showroom to test them out yourself and even get them fitted by a professional. Without further ado, here are the top gadgets to pimp your mobility scooter:
7 LED Safety Head Light
The 7 LED Safety Head Light is perfect to ensure you remain safe on the roads at night or in poor lighting. In fact, it is one of the best mobility scooter accessories to buy for those who want to safely use their mobility scooter at any time of day, or for those who require a crutch or wheelchair.
Not only is it quick to install thanks to the elastic silicone material used, it won’t leave a hole in your pocket since prices of this bright light range between £40.00 and £50.00, so you can feel rest assured that you can be seen on the road in darker conditions.
Who doesn’t love a cuppa on the go? We certainly do, and the fleximug clamp-on cupholder makes carrying a warm beverage of your choice wherever you go even easier. This cool mobility scooter accessory is great for those who want to live an independent life and want to easily access their drinks, and whilst this accessory might not necessarily be a ‘gadget’, we certainly couldn’t leave it out!
Door & Telephone Alert
The older we get, the more our senses begin to deteriorate. Whilst this is a natural way of life, the EchoChime300 Door and Telephone Alert can help restore your young self. This pretty nifty gadget notifies you when someone calls your landline, or if there is a knock at the door, by flashing to get your attention.
What makes this gadget so perfect is that it is battery powered, so you can carry it with you around your home without the fear of missing a call from your family or postman at the door, and whilst this may not be a gadget to pimp your mobility scooter, this is certainly a great gadget for those who move at a slower pace.
Padded Back Support
Depending on how often you use your mobility scooter, you may begin to experience discomfort. Overtime, the padding of your chair will become flatter and flatter, and could increase the amount of pain that you feel in your back.
Luckily, a padded back support can help restore the comfort you once swore by, and are available in countless colours, so finding one matched to your mobility scooter shouldn’t be an issue.
As well as comfort, padded back supports helps improve posture, and are designed for additional lumbar support, so you can experience the ultimate comfort getting from A to B.
Mobility Pocket Organiser
When you head out the house on your mobility scooter, the last thing you want to think about is where you are going to put your keys, phone or purse to keep them safe. Luckily, the High Road Mobility Pocket Organiser can eliminate all your uncertainties. This nifty organiser allows you to store all your belongings on the go, offering plenty of room.
With 8 pockets and deep-padded compartments, keeping your gadgets safe and out of sight is easy, and alongside your new clamp-on cup holder, you’re good to go!
We can do much better than that Chris and really improve things. I have my beloved Pride Celebrity XL8, she’s 10 years old this month but was in really excellent condition when I purchased her secondhand in Manchester and imported her to Paris FOC on a Flybe lowcost ticket- a great experience it was too.
The XL8 has suspension and tubed tyres – essential for the Paris cobbles. I added seat suspension with a sprung seat post, a secondary 12-volt wiring loom and twin USB power sockets, to charge my phone, charge three LED headlights and four rechargable white/ red flashing mini warning lights – necessary in Paris. I have hardwired an excellent rearview camera and mini monitor to replace the cumbersome mirrors. Fitted a spare wheel to the rear accessory socket. A 1915 bicycle Klaxon for warning mobile phone addict pedestrians and, because mobility scooters are stolen I’ve hardwired in a hidden GPS tracker. Rewire Security were extremely helpful in providing illustrations so that I could adapt its circuit board to better fit in a very small space. Because of heavier than usual battery use I added a much more accurate 27v – 24-volt battery status led metre.
I also added much-needed mud flaps and consequently relocated the rear lighting. You can check out Long John mud flaps for long-lasting protection. All of this has been neatly installed and is all very useful. I have MS but with a chair and kind help to remove and replace the scooter seat, managed to do it all myself.
My Parisian neighbours decided to call her my Rolls Royce, so to their great amusement, I managed to buy a Rolls Royce Silver Cloud boot badge on its chrome plinth from a scrap yard, it just happens to fit the tiller head contours exactly. It’s a joke that Parisians love, so lots of laughs.
That sounds amazing, Stuart! I love the idea of the Rolls Royce badge on your scooter 🙂
