Scooting Towards Independence

Just because you’re a little less mobile than you used to be, there’s no need to think that you can’t get around and enjoy an active, full and independent lifestyle.

If you use an electric wheelchair at home, you already know how useful they are to get around your house and local vicinity, plus the convenience of having in-home power wheelchair repair at your fingertips. But if you’re looking to go further afield and cover more of a variety of terrains you might be looking to transfer to a power scooter for longer distances.
