Mobility Scooters can be Pricey so Here is an Alternative to Build Your Own……….

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.


Do People Who Are Morbidly Obese Need a Mobility Scooter or Not ….

(Topics include electric wheelchairs, mobility scooter, mobility scooters,  )

I think many people (although they will not admit it  ) look down at younger to middle age  obese people using a mobility scooter to get around places like Wal Mart, or traveling out in public in general.

I think there is a unnecessary stigma attached to obesity and that  everyone who is obese is lazy and has no self worth or just plain does not have self control.

This may be true in a lot of cases. But in many instances this is just  not reality.

There are many things that can transform ones body from a healthy weight  to a not so healthy weight including diabetes, high blood pressure, thyroid problems, mental illness,  and numerous medications and other sicknesses that put people in a predicament with unhealthy weight gain.

I think many people stare and shake their heads at that 45 year old over weight man in Target riding around in his mobility scooter doing his shopping for the week.

The fact is the mobility scooter was a device invented to help all people who may be suffering from a debilitating condition making it extremely difficult to travel on foot from point to point.

I personally got out of the habit of  judging those who use a mobility scooter to get around when they sometimes look like they could just lose some weight and be on their own two feet.

Plus, the fact that my 50 year old brother had to use a mobility scooters  for months after he had  his major heart attack to get around really made me rethink things !.

I am sure there were people who questioned him and why he needed a mobility scooter to get groceries.

But I must say that we have a huge epidemic of over weight people in our country . More so than any other country in the World.

People have a right to utilize mobility products like scooters, but I think as a society we need to really urge people to educate themselves about food and exercise and mental health.

In turn , this may result in  a downward spiral of mobility products being used and help people get around with the legs God gave them !

Having to Start All Over with This Blog is Frustrating…………

(Topics related to article include Blog , mobility scooter, make money mobility scooters)


This is just a little bit of a extension of my last Post but with some more detail of what happened to my Blog.

As many of you know I started this blog back in March 2008. One of the main reasons was that someone very close to me had come down with a illness and consequently had become partially disabled.

It is a story millions of people world wide are familiar with. Of course, some  have illnesses and accidents that are more debilitating in nature than others. But I always saw a commonality amongst all of them.

And I wanted to have a blog that would help all of those with disabilities from all walks of Life. Helping them with resources where with some work from home they could earn a little money on the side. As well as giving them some top notch information from the many articles about things like a mobility scooter tor electric wheelchair and take pride in my  writing.

However, in the last few months for some unknown reason my blog completely went off the map. I did not know what happened to it. In most last post I wrote where I assumed hackers had been the culprit.

But by deduction I have found my Blog here was shut down by Google and taken off their Servers which were free to use.

Well, undoubtedly I was completely dumbfounded as I had worked hard to make this a quality blog and spent hundreds of hours writing nearly 200 posts that were interesting and informative.

I have gotten the site back up here. But it is like I am starting from brand new. All the readers I had built up and the traffic that was coming from me from the Search Engines are now gone.

I apologize from venting. I will begin to start writing once again about ways you can really be helped by a  mobility scooter, electric wheelchairs, stair lifts, chair lifts ,van lifts and more.

I will make this blog better,much better , than it was before. And I will do it with the same integrity and quality I did before.

Again a lot of the main focus will be about the technological advances of the mobility scooter. It has been a Godsend to many people.

And I am also going to really point out our partnerships here that help many people.

One of the common themes I see with people on disability benefits is that they have little money left over at the end of the month ( if any) after everyday bills and medical costs are factored in.

Well, over the years I have found a few good programs anyone can make money from the comfort of their own couch.

So stay tuned for more of that.

Enough of this and now that I have gotten this stuff off my chest let us move forward 🙂

Best regards,

I’m back ! is here to stay………………

Hello there folks !!

For some reason my old website was evidently erased by hackers and my 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 !!
