Advice & Tips: Using walking aids like a cane, crutch, rollator, electric cart (like a golf-cart +/-) gives us back independance. There's no point feeling embarrassed. It's no different than eye glasses or hearing mechanisms. My "scooter" is fun and adds to my quality of life 😀😀.

Advice & Tips: The Pride-Mobility Go-Go Ultra frees up your hands for carrying stuff, plus it has a basket to carry even more stuff. The seat swivels 360 degrees, making transfers very easy if you still have use of your arms. It's a three-wheeler, so you can get into and out of just about any corner without much trouble - unless you've always been a crappy driver!! You should be able to get one of these for around $1000. And if you weigh more than about 180 lbs, this is not the scooter for you.
