Because of a combination of my spine injury and my pre-existing disability stuff, I've realized that I need to get a mobility scooter to get around in my regular life. I miss being able to eschew driving to campus for work, classes, and meetings! While my manual wheelchair helps me on flat surfaces, the hills on campus really make manual wheeling a recipe for messing up my already messed up shoulders and wrists!
I'm fundraising for a TravelScoot Junior Deluxe (it's a shorter frame with a better battery than the original version). The fundraiser goal also includes a basket so I can carry books and a travel case that protects the scooter when I go to scholarly conferences (that frequently have thick padded carpet that are awful for manual wheelers).
Help me keep my shoulders healthy so I can be as active as possible!
