Wheelchair Accessible Taxi Services

Whether you have a short-term injury or a long term condition, having impaired mobility does not mean having to give up a lifestyle and hobbies that you love. Investing in a power wheelchair or mobility scooter will keep you out and about in secure, reliable equipment. If you are no longer able to drive, you will find yourself wondering how you will be able to get to and from places and events that you enjoy attending. Many taxi services offer wheelchair accessible vehicles that will allow you to travel safely to the places you love.

Portable Mobility Equipment

While some mobility equipment requires a vehicle lift, many scooters and power wheelchairs come in a compact design that is easy to fold and store — like the Victory 3-Wheel Scooter. Compact mobility equipment allows you to tow your scooter or power chair, which makes travel much easier. While compact equipment is a great option for many, it will not be sufficient for everyone, depending on their individual mobility needs.

Taxi Services Offered

For those who need more substantial power mobility equipment, a wheelchair accessible taxi service will be there for you when you need to travel. There are many cities that offer wheelchair accessible taxi services, and many of these services are willing to travel to assist those who live in more remote areas. This comprehensive list of wheelchair accessible taxicabs will keep you up to date on wheelchair accessible services in your area such as North Bay Taxi and Wheelchair which offers vehicles with wheelchair lifts in the Northern California area, or A-1 Wheelchair Patient Transport which serves the Charlotte, North Carolina area. If you do not see your local area listed, try contacting local taxi services in your area for further assistance in locating a taxi service that can suit your needs.

Scout Power Scooters – Choose 3 Wheels or 4!

Having impaired mobility should not mean having to stay cooped up inside all the time and never getting to do the things you enjoy. Many individuals find freedom and independence again by adding mobility equipment to their everyday lives. Aeroflow Healthcare will work with you or your loved ones to find a great manual wheelchair, power wheelchair or power scooter that will fit your mobility needs.

Scout 3 Wheel Travel Power Scooter

The 3 wheeled option comes with a comfortable and ergonomic design that makes use easy for someone with limited strength in their hands.

The lightweight design is easy to disassemble for travel and storage so that you can spend less time concerned about storing your scooter and more time doing the things you love.

Get Outdoors with a 4 Wheel Scout Scooter

For those who love the outdoors, the 4 wheeled Scout Compact Travel Scooter is a great option for you. Easily traverse through outdoor terrain in a scooter designed to keep you comfortable and secure, indoors and out. Adjustable armrests and seat heights will allow you to customize your scooter in a way that fits your individual comfort needs. Using the quick connect battery for easy and fast charging will allow you to spend your time out and about instead of stuck waiting for your battery to charge.

The New Nitro Elite CF Carbon Fiber Walker Rollator

If you or a loved one has impaired mobility, then you understand the struggle of trying to find the right equipment to stay mobile while you are out and about. While some may be able to use a cane, you might find that it is not always the most stable or safe option. Others may need a manual wheelchair, but individuals who can still walk with some assistance prefer to keep their independence and stay on their feet as long as they can.

Perks of a Walker/Rollator

A great option for someone who can still move freely on their feet but who prefers the security of two handles is a walker or rollator.
