Off-road mobility scooters enlisted in outdoors dementia initiative

The Forest of Bowland Tramper

Special all-terrain mobility scooters are being used at a new nature walk developed to encourage disabled individuals and people living with dementia to get out into The Great Outdoors.

The new dementia-friendly trail was launched by The Forest of Bowland Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and features Beamer Ltd’s Tramper scooters, which are able to tackle tough terrain.

The accessible route is free from obstacles like stiles and is designed to be easy to navigate, using a number of symbols to direct users.

Organisers hope the Trampers will open up the countryside to more people living with disabilities and dementia.

The scheme is also running taster days so people can familiarise themselves with the mobility scooters.

The Tramper claims to be the first all-terrain mobility scooter on the market. It features a unique chassis design and has light, accurate steering.

It is designed to be stable with a low centre of gravity and good articulation, allowing users to take on slopes up to 25 degrees.
