The cool factor

 

As a cyclist, I was immediately intrigued by Barbara’s mobility device which is basically a push bike for adults!

In a wheelchair I was invisible,” she told me, “but with this, I’m at the same height as other people.”

Heading off to Mexico soon with her new Walk Aid, Barbara told me it’s not just height and the accessibility and ease of the device, There’s the cool factor, too!

The Walk Aid is an orthopedic scooter that’s designed to make it easier and more convenient to navigate public and private spaces for people who have trouble walking.

There are pictures and videos on the site that illustrate the advantages of a mobility aid like this – check it out here: Walk Aid.
