Many people who are disabled want and NEED a vehicle to transport them around the store, down the block, a sidewalk, or around the house etc..etc..
The price of a new mobility scooter can be thousands of dollars. And even a used scooter can cost you a good bit.
I personally know first hand the financial sacrifices and difficulties disabled people take on in the span of their lives. It can be taxing and with Insurance like Medicare, medical costs can add up rather quickly because of the 20% it does not cover.
I wanted to share this sequence of videos of a man who step by step created a mobility scooter for his son who was in need a mobility scooter.
His goal at first was to make one that was not so lumpy and nimble enough to be transported onto a plane and meet the specifications required (incidentally mobility scooters are exempt on planes). But he still wanted to build one that was robust yet easily transportable and did not take up a whole lot of space when folded up.
What he made seems very impressive. Check it out HERE
I think many people with disabilities could consider this route if they have a relative or friend who is very handy and crafty and is willing to put in a little time to build something like this.
Just a little food for thought,
Remember, there are ALWAYS ways to get the things you need and get them in a economically appropriate way.
Just take a look at the pictures of this personally built mobulity scooter.
