Veterans and Electric Mobility Scooters: A Growing Trend

A growing number of veterans in the United States are making use of electric mobility scooters to aid in their mobility and independence. Electric mobility scooters have become increasingly popular among veterans due to their easy maneuverability, extended range, and reasonable prices. As the veteran population ages and experiences mobility issues, many are turning to these electric mobility scooters as an effective and efficient solution.

According to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, nearly 21 million veterans reside in the United States today, with many facing physical limitations due to aging and injuries sustained during their service. In a 2018 report, the Department of Veterans Affairs estimated that approximately 4.3 million U.S. veterans were living with a disability affecting their mobility, with this number expected to increase in the coming years.

While there is limited data available on the number of veterans specifically using electric mobility scooters, recent trends have shown a significant increase in their usage. The Department of Veterans Affairs has multiple programs in place to assist veterans with the purchase and maintenance of electric mobility scooters. The Prosthetic and Sensory Aids Service provides resources and financial assistance to veterans to help cover the costs of these devices, making them more accessible and affordable for veterans in need.

As the technology and affordability of electric mobility scooters continue to improve, the number of veterans utilizing these devices is expected to grow. In a survey conducted by the Paralyzed Veterans of America in 2021, 20% of its members reported using electric mobility scooters for daily activities, a notable increase from 8% in 2017.

With benefits such as increased mobility, independence, and overall quality of life, it is clear why a growing number of veterans are choosing electric mobility scooters as an effective solution to their daily challenges. As the veteran population continues to age, and as technology becomes more advanced and affordable, we can expect the trend of veterans using electric mobility scooters to continue upwards in the coming years, helping to make day-to-day life more manageable for those who have served our country.
