With limited mobility sometimes comes a feeling of limited independence for your senior loved one, so there can be a lot of pressure to find the best scooter to accommodate them.
Research predicts the global mobile scooter market size to reach $1.85 billion by 2027 due to the rapid aging population, which may also lead to a mass increase in scooter selection. However, finding the perfect mobility device can be a tedious process when considering several factors such as size, compactness, mileage and even travel approval.
New to the market and ready to purchase is the Ephesus S6 mobility scooter, a device your senior can easily bring with them wherever they go, without having to stress.
Ephesus founder Hasim Sevinc said his company started four years ago with a team full of family, as they sold various brands on the online market. According to Hasim, with confidence came the development of the company’s products.
“We successfully launched Ephesus S5 in 2020,” he said. “Then, we launched Ephesus S6 and Ephesus E9 this year. So, I can say that being a small business and switching from a reseller to a brand owner makes us feel really good.”
Ephesus claims to be one of the “most rapidly expanding mobility equipment companies based in the United States,” and this new scooter proves the company’s ability to transform the lives of older adults who rely on a mobility device to go about their day-to-day life. Here are several reasons that make this scooter such a worthwhile purchase.
Easy to expand and fold
Unlike your typical, manual-fold scooter, Ephesus’s S6 mobile scooter comes with three folding mechanisms—one being remote-operated! With just the click of a button, your senior can easily prepare their scooter for use or store it away in seconds.
In addition, its sturdy, curved handlebar makes it easy to hold onto for transport. Compared to other scooters that can weigh up to 400 pounds, the Ephesus S6 is only 67.5 pounds, making it a great lightweight option. Its folding structure also makes it easy to roll on the ground, so your older adult doesn’t have to carry it everywhere they go.
Not only are the E6 scooter’s lithium batteries easy to remove but they’re TSA-approved as well. With airplane-friendly dimensions, your senior loved one can bring this scooter on the plane with them so they never have to worry about leaving it behind at home. According to the TSA website, lithium ion batteries must be removed from all mobility devices and placed in carry-on luggage, so make sure you have them properly stored prior to travel. Luckily, this scooter weighs only 54 pounds without batteries, so it’s easy to move around on your flight.
What really makes the Ephesus S6 model so unique is its impressive 15.5-mile span, making it one of the longest-range scooters on the market! With its ability to reach a maximum 4 miles-per-hour, your older adult can ride at a comfortable pace and use it for days on end without having to worry about recharging the battery constantly.
Adaptability to various ground surfaces
With a built-in 500-watt brushless motor, your older adult can accelerate and slow down at a smoother pace. The motor specs also allow your senior loved one to effortlessly ride their scooter across various surfaces, such as grass, gravel and even cobblestone.
It’s also able to be used indoors, so whether it’s a move to the kitchen or a stroll around the park, your senior loved one can bring their scooter with them wherever they go. The Ephesus S6 scooter also includes an electromagnetic brake, so the scooter automatically halts once your senior lets go of the handlebars. This feature is included to help prevent accidents and decrease the chances of falls.
With a variety of high-tech components and a sleek design, there are many reasons to love the Ephesus S6 mobility scooter. Available to purchase for $2,399 (with payment plans available), you and your older adult can order this scooter right from the company’s website.
