Mobility is essential to the survival of all living creatures. It’s how they get food, escape danger, and find shelter. For human beings, it also means getting to work and school and participating in hobbies and many activities. Those who have full mobility often take it for granted. For those with limited mobility, help is needed.
People who don’t have the full use of their arms and/or legs or seniors who have been slowed by age are fortunate in that devices exist that allow them to get around and live productive and active lives. Canes and walkers are among the oldest and simplest of these products. However, there are many powered options that can propel the disabled virtually anywhere.
One of the premier manufacturers of powered mobility devices is Golden Technologies. The company designs and builds innovative, high-quality products that help those with disabilities get on the move.
The Golden brand produces numerous options for several types of mobility devices to suit a wide range of needs and budgets. The three kinds of devices most people use are mobility scooters, power wheelchairs, and lift chairs.
One of the most useful devices is the mobility scooter. It is less cumbersome than a wheelchair and can fit more easily into smaller spaces. They are excellent for people who can stand and walk short distances but need help with longer traverses. Golden Tech makes a number of excellent models for the power mobility you need to get around.
The Buzzaround LT is a low-cost Golden mobility scooter that can be used indoors or outdoors. It has a 300 lb. capacity on a cushy stadium-style seat and three wheels for stability on a small frame. It is easy to take apart and put together which makes it portable. The LT is durable and comes with a basket and cup holder. Optional accessories include a safety flag, oxygen tank holder, rear basket, and rearview mirrors.
If you are looking for a smooth, stable ride the Buzzaround XLS is the scooter for you. Four wheels give you a solid base and the comfort spring suspension levels out all those little bumps for a smooth ride. The comfortable seat holds up to 300 lbs. and it can travel 14 miles on a single charge. The XLS assembles and disassembles in seconds, making it easily portable. It has a front basket and cupholder and the same optional accessories are available.
A three-wheeler with more advanced features, the Buzzaround XLS-HD has a 325 lb. capacity on a plush stadium-style seat. It has the comfort suspension system as well as an LED front headline and an LED battery gauge. A front basket is standard and a larger seat as well as the Golden optional accessories are available.
The Buzzaround CarryOn is a four-wheeler with a 300-lb. capacity on a comfy stadium-style seat. It has a front basket and best of all it folds into a convenient size for easy transport. Any of the optional accessories are available including a lithium battery travel pack.
The Companion GC440 has a comfortable seat for larger users that can hold up to 400 lbs. It’s strong and stable yet easily disassembles for full portability. This heavy-duty ride can go 15 miles on a single charge. Its 10-inch tires and steel rims let you ride over rough and uneven terrain.
For people who don’t have the ability to stand or walk, or can only walk for short distances, a Golden Power wheelchair will provide mobility.
An excellent entry-level and affordable option is the Literider Envy. It has a 300-lb. capacity on a very comfortable stadium seat and an under basket for storage. It easily breaks down into four pieces for transport in the trunk of a car. It has a joystick controller, a range of 9.5 miles, and comes in five colors.
A smaller device, the Stride Folding Power Wheelchair has a 265-lb. capacity, a tight turning radius, and folds to fit in any vehicle. Its aluminum frame is lightweight, yet strong. It has a range of 9.3 miles and a slingback seat with a removable cushion.
For larger folks who need a bariatric model, the Compass HD has a 450-lb. capacity on a cushy captain’s seat. It has heavy-duty footrests and leg supports as well as an articulated chassis to carry you safely over tough terrain.
Some people have mobility but need a little help getting up and down from a seated position. A Golden Lift Chair provides comfort and the assistance you need to change positions.
This unusual hybrid-sized chair ensures that you will be completely comfortable while you unwind with its overstuffed biscuit back, chaise pad, and oversized armrests. The PR-510 also features the MaxiComfort Zero Gravity position.
The PR 401 comes in two sizes, both of which have a 375-lb. capacity. It is fully reclinable with a chaise seat and biscuit back. The Cambridge has three positions and can accommodate anyone from 5’1″ to 6’4″. It comes in a wide range of fabrics and there is a heat and massage option.
This lift chair features a 5-motor system by Golden that includes power lumbar support, and a power headrest. It has the ability to lift the feet above the heart to experience a sense of weightlessness while the Twilight positions support the spine’s natural “S” shape, relieving pressure spots and promoting good posture.
