Hello there folks !!
For some reason my old website was evidently erased by hackers and my Moneyfordisabled.com name was mysteriously hijacked /taken down by them or some other ruthless culprits. Through time, I finally retrieved my Domain of 5+ years and I am back Online with my same site. Albeit with a refreshing and better looking one I might add 🙂
I still have all the great information intact concerning mobility scooters, electric wheelchairs and a whole lot of other mobility products which I know has helped many people and I plan on bringing new resources to continue helping people with disability struggles.
Mobility scooters have been a huge ongoing theme in my blog. It will continue to be so.
Some history about them if you do not know…………….I guess you can say the first mobility scooter came about in 1954. It was a really a distorted contraption compared to what they are today. But funny enough it was offered by Sears Roebuck and was marketed as an electric wheelchair. It had more in common with a mobility scooter in the way it looked and operated but needless to say it was a commercial flop !
It was Allan R. Thieme who really invented the first mobility scooter back in 1968. And it happened to be a marketing success ! This guy was personally motivated to build one because he had a member in his family who was stricken with MS. It was built in his home and was called The Amigo. It really was the sole impetus for the entire scooter industry. And today Amigo International still operates and is headquartered out of Bridgeport, Michigan.
I hope this is a good re-introduction to my 5 year old blog. Mobility Scooters have changed the landscape for many disabled and elderly people that is for sure ! And I will continue to talk more and more about some of the newer and better ones coming out on the market.
Be sure to check out the archives because there is some good stuff in there.
I was not sure what what was going to happen to my blog. But I am back, and it is a good feeling. 😉
Thanks for your patience and God Bless !!
