Fibromyalgia and SmartScoot™ the compact, foldable mobility scooter


What is Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia is a chronic disorder causing widespread musculoskeletal pain, fatigue, and tenderness in localized areas. The widespread pain and tenderness to touch may occur body-wide or migrate over the body. Along with other symptoms, pain and tenderness wax and wane over time. Doctors aren’t sure about the exact causes of Fibromyalgia, but some think it’s a problem with how your brain and spinal cord process pain signals from your nerves. Symptoms sometimes begin after a physical trauma, surgery, infection or significant psychological stress. In other cases, symptoms gradually accumulate over time with no single triggering event.

Fibromyalgia is often misdiagnosed and misunderstood, but a combination of medication, exercise, managing your stress, and healthy habits may ease your symptoms enough that you can live a normal, active life. 

What is SmartScoot?

When you have an active lifestyle and a mobility difficulty, a compact, lightweight, folding scooter like SmartScoot™ can be a crucial tool. Unlike a full-size powerchair, a compact, folding scooter allows you to easily take it along with you in the car, on planes or even cruise ships. Lightweight scooters may be smaller than a full-size power chair, but they are heavy-duty and boast a full weight capacity. Folding scooters are mobility products that fill diverse roles – aiding in everything from travel and exploration to daily activities like shopping or taking the kids to the park. You do not have to let a mobility difficulty repress your desire to see the world or spend time with family. Sometimes a little help can go a long way. With the SmartScoot mobility scooter, tasks that were once a struggle can once again become a stress-free part of everyday life.
