May 30 is MS Awareness Day, the world’s largest MS awareness campaign. This campaign aims to draw attention to and raise awareness of the disease and its effects. Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a disease that affects the central nervous system, disrupting the flow of information within the brain and between the brain and body. The cause of MS is still unknown and the progress, severity, and specific symptoms of MS in any one person cannot yet be predicted. Impaired mobility is one of the common symptoms in those with early MS disease, with about 50 percent of existing patient populations requiring mobility support and mobility aids some or all of the time.
A Different Kind of Travel Scooter
One of the founders of SmartScoot™ was diagnosed with MS in his early 30’s. Over the years, his mobility had declined to the extent that he had to rely on his wife to push him in a wheelchair. He purchased a lightweight scooter that was available in the market and used it for a year. There were many things he liked about it. He felt that, with some innovations, he could design a compact folding scooter that would be so much better than other mobility scooter brands or power chairs. He contacted an engineering colleague who worked with him to create the SmartScoot brand of compact folding scooters. They came up with a folding power scooter that is better for everyday use and is also a better travel scooter.
The SmartScoot Community
Beyond the testimonials and blogs we publish online, the SmartScoot is discussed in forums and review sites like cruisecritic.com. One couple has taken customer testimonials to the next level and launched their own blog about traveling with their SmartScoot mobility scooter. The travel blog, Hank and Murphy, was created by our customer, Tim Walker, and his wife Sue. Due to Tim’s Multiple Sclerosis (MS), he experiences difficulty walking long distances or standing for extended periods of time. He now uses his SmartScoot travel scooter to accomplish daily tasks and travel the world with his wife. On their blog, the couple documents their many trips with the SmartScoot and describe how our mobility scooter has allowed them to live their lives to the fullest.
