Our baskets are 4ft 6in in height with foot-holes in the side, so you do have to be fairly mobile and able to climb in and out to fly. Landings themselves can also be a bit bumpy, depending on the wind speeds at the time, so your mum would need to be happy that this wouldn't adversely affect her.
We're not medical experts here so we usually recommend that passengers have a chat with their GP for advice before booking if they're unsure about whether a medical matter would affect their experience.
If she has a chat with her doctor before giving us a call, that's probably the best bet and we look forward to hopefully seeing her in the skies with us soon.
