The benefits of electric adult trikes for those with limited mobility
18th September, 2023
Our electric trikes are popular amongst those who want to get outdoors and cycle but may need a helping hand.
Three-wheel bikes, especially electric three-wheeled bikes, support those living with disabilities, health issues or physical limitations. The tricycle requires less energy from riders due to its electric motor. Being able to cycle at ease on electric tricycles offers a variety of benefits for those living with limited mobility.
Why are electric tricycles good for people with mobility issues?
1. Easier cycling
Electric trikes can significantly increase the distance people with limited mobility can cycle. The pedal-assist allows you to comfortably ride longer distances with less pressure on your joints and muscles and without overexerting yourself.
2. More independence
E-trikes provide a convenient mode of transport for running errands, food shopping, or visiting family and friends. It helps reduce how often you have to rely on public transport, or people driving you places. All our electric tricycles come with rear cargo storage making it easy to carry your belongings around while out and about.
3. Improved physical Health
Riding an electric tricycle gives people with limited mobility a safe and stable way to stay active. Cycling is a relatively low-impact form of exercise. With the extra assistance of an electric trike, individuals can improve their cardiovascular health and muscle strength at their own pace.
4. Safer than bicycles
Three-wheel bikes have more stability than traditional bicycles. Individuals with mobility issues may struggle to coordinate balancing, pedalling and steering on a two-wheel bike; an electric trike offers a safer and more stable riding experience, reducing the risk of falls.
