Mobility Equipment Perth
Mobility equipment enables people with restricted mobility to enjoy more freedom and autonomy in their lives. Mobility aids range from basic canes to assist with walking to advanced mobility scooters that can serve as vehicle replacements.
Motobility is a leading provider of mobility equipment in Perth. We provide a complete range of solutions to address all mobility challenges, including motorised scooters, electric wheelchairs, lifts, hoists and more. Our friendly and knowledgeable team will help you to find the right equipment for your needs.
Electric mobility scooters (or gophers) are available in a range of sizes with features to suit every need and price range. They include:
- Travel scooters that can fold up or dismantle for convenient storage on flights
- Portable scooters suitable for flat surfaces that can fit in the boot of your car
- Medium scooters for getting around town and using public transport
- Large scooters that can serve as a car replacement and can handle tougher terrain
To use mobility scooters safely, you should be able to sit upright without support and to operate the controls.
Wheelchairs and powerchairs could be a better option than a scooter for indoor use, as they can offer superior comfort and manoeuvrability. Like scooters, wheelchairs come in a range of sizes and options, including:
- Manual wheelchairs that are cheaper, but require upper body strength
- Electric wheelchairs or portable powerchairs with rechargeable batteries
- Folding electric wheelchairs with plane-safe lithium batteries for ease of transport
Deciding whether a wheelchair or scooter is the best choice for you will depend on your personal mobility issues and how you're planning to use it. If you're undecided, taking both for a test drive should help you to make up your mind.
Stairlifts & Wheelchair Lifts
Mobility lifts remove the obstacle of stairs and steps so you can enjoy full use of your home and other areas. Options include:
- Stair lifts for individuals
- Wheelchair lifts
- Platform lifts
These versatile solutions can be installed indoors or outdoors and may be straight or curved as required. Depending on the system, installation may be completed in just a few hours.
Hoists take care of the heavy lifting when loading your mobility scooter or wheelchair in or out of your vehicle. They can save your back and knees while also giving you complete independence, as you won't have to rely on anyone's help. Options include:
- Portable hoists
- Automated hoists
- Self-loading ramp systems
Hoists can lift up to 200kg. Check their lifting capacity to make sure they're suitable for your mobility equipment.
If you need help walking for the short term or long term, our range of non-motorised walking aids can give you the support you need at affordable prices. These include:
- Walking sticks
- Knee walkers
Walking aids may be lightweight and foldable for ease of transport in storage bags or mobility scooters.
What mobility equipment do I need?
These solutions cover the full spectrum of mobility issues and are suitable for people whose mobility may have decreased due to age, disability, injury or health conditions.
To help you decide which mobility equipment you could benefit from, we recommend the following four-step process.
1. Consider your mobility needs
Do you need a wheelchair or scooter for getting about indoors or outdoors, a cane or rollator to help you walk, or a lift to get up and down stairs? You might also need accessories for mobility equipment, such as a hoist to transport your scooter or wheelchair without assistance.
2. Talk to your doctor, Physiotherapist or Ocupational Therapist
It may be the case that you are not be suitable for some mobility devices, which could cause strain or may not be safe. Your doctor or other healthcare professional can advise you on what's best for you and recommend suitable options for your needs.
3. Work out your budget
It's generally recommended to buy the best mobility equipment you can comfortably afford, and this can vary for every individual. If you're worried about the cost of mobility equipment, check if you are eligible for the NDIS scheme or other financial support.
4. Talk to our friendly specialist team
