Good Questions to be Asked
A good PMD provider should start any buying experience with a slew of questions, starting at the most basic level; Indoor use vs. outdoor use? Related: Scooters vs. Power Chairs
Be prepared to answer questions about a number of factors like physical/medical condition, expectations for performance, space available, and layout of the home. The provider will take measurements for seat sizing and should discuss the funding options and assistance available to you.
Manufacturers are designing PMD's for the Baby Boomer generation and offering many feature rich and stylish solutions with an emphasis on independent mobility. There's something for everyone.
A great way to customize the PMD and ensure independent, safe mobility is to consider adding accessories. Simple things like oxygen tank holders, cup holders, baskets, and cane holders can provide real convenience and more freedom.
