SmartScoot Makes Airport Travel a Breeze for Judy S.
SmartScoot is a folding, mobility scooter that is meant to help those with mobility difficulties maintain their active lifestyle. SmartScoot is great for any activity from grocery shopping to traveling abroad, as it complies with FAA regulations for carry-on air travel. All of this makes it easy for Judy S. to visit her daughter out-of-state:
“I wouldn’t be able to visit my daughter in California if it weren’t for SmartScoot. Although I can walk with a cane, I cannot manage long distances. I find airports particularly daunting because often my plane is the one farthest away on the jetway and a there is a time limit to get from one plane to another.
“Many people stop me at the airport and ask what I’m driving. I tell them about SmartScoot and how it is light-weight, can easily fold up and fit in a car, and (best of all) it’s possible to ride the scooter all the way up to the plane entrance! Then the staff takes it, folds it, and puts it with the baby carriages. It’s right there when I get off the plane. How fabulous is that?”
The SmartScoot mobility scooter weighs in at 39 pounds, including the 4 lb lithium-ion battery which conveys up to 12 miles of battery range. SmartScoot can easily fit in the trunk of a small car or disassembled into three pieces, with the heaviest piece weighing 27 lbs.
“The SmartScoot is cute. It isn’t clunky and it even fits into the handicapped bathroom stall. I can’t live without it.”
