EXERCISING WITH A MOBILITY SCOOTER by Afikim

It is well known that exercising is essential to maintain a healthy body and mind. When we exercise, our bodies release endorphins that lift our spirits and boosting our self-esteem along with all the physical positives.

For seniors with limited mobility using a wheelchair or a mobility scooter to exercise is a creative approach to overcoming physical limitations and find enjoyable exercise routines.

 

STAY FIT AND FLEXIBLE WITH THESE EXERCISES USING YOUR MOBILITY SCOOTER

 

EXERCISE #1 – LEG LIFTS

Place one hand in a comfortable position on the scooter canopy and the other hand on the back of the seat. Then raise your lag to the scooter floor. Repeat 15 times for each leg

 

EXERCISE #2 – SQUATS

Hold both hands on the canopy’s rear brackets and then assume a squatting position, while making sure to

keep your back straight. Repeat 10 times.

 

 

ECERCISE #3 – KNEE LIFTS

While sitting comfortably on the scooter, raise one leg until the knee touches the tiller. Repeat this 15 times for each leg.

 

EXERCISE #4 – ARM STRETCHES

While sitting comfortably on the mobility scooter, stretch out one arm and hold onto the canopy’s rear bracket for 15 seconds.

Repeat for both hands. If you find this too difficult, try holding on to the back of the seat, instead.

I have not received the device and have not been giving any reason despite contacting the delivery company. They sent an email saying it would be resolved the 25th and I sent an email called this morning. I got no answer as to when it would be delivered.

Very helpful ,I would recommend these, couldn't make it without them.

High quality kiddie pool

Don’t spend over 300$ on this thing. Just get a sturdy blow up kids pool from Walmart or Amazon and it’ll get the job done. This is a scam.
