Long story short ….. it was the best decision we ever made
The TravelScoot caught my husband Tim’s attention because he has a very difficult time walking. He didn’t really like being pushed around in a wheel chair so often chose to stay home instead of being pushed around somewhere. We purchased the TravelScoot before a trip overseas. We were nervous about taking this new piece of equipment overseas as we were unsure how it would fit in cars over there. We were also nervous to leave the wheelchair at home.
Long story short ….. it was the best decision we ever made. Right from the beginning, it made getting through the airport so much easier for both of us. Tim was independent (and loved the feeling!), which allowed me to look after the luggage and everything else instead of pushing a wheelchair. It’s amazing how quick and easy it was for Tim to fold and unfold and put in the large carry bag.
Tim did and went places in England that he would have never gone/done if it wasn’t for the TravelScoot. It was amazing. Cars over there are so much smaller than here, but it fit in even the smallest of cars there.
After the TravelScoot experience in England, there was no hesitation in planning other vacations. We have been to The British Virgin Islands (3 planes to get there), New York and Mexico. Three places that we had never been before and don’t think we would have gone if it wasn’t for the TravelScoot.
It has also made a huge difference to Tim going on short-distance trips and local places. Before he would usually say “no” (didn’t want to be pushed around in a wheelchair). However, since the TravelScoot he very rarely says “no”. When we have relatives visit us from England, he goes everywhere, Niagara Falls, ferry to the Toronto Island, baseball games, etc. It’s also great for trips to the mall and restaurants.
We have a car with a regular trunk and Tim has no trouble getting it in and out of the trunk.
Everywhere we go someone ends up stopping Tim to ask him about it. In summary, Tim (and I) are so pleased with the TravelScoot.
