My son is 11 and while he can walk leaning on me or my husband, he is mainly on his scooter now (since a fall in March & tight muscles) and a transport chair for quick trips and airports. It was suggested by his doctors at Columbia Presbyterian this past visit that he get measured for a Quickie 2 Lite for proper seating and so he could propel himself around when not on the scooter. I believe it will be a help at home as we have a basic Rifton chair which he really doens't care for and most times at home he is on the couch or computer chair. When in those seats he has to call me for everything -- put in another video game or get him over to the computer, etc. He can push the big wheels to get himself around. He may even use it in school as an addition to his Go Go scooter.
Does anyone's son have one of these out there? Do they like it? Easy to use? Kevin's eyes lit up when he tried one out because he can't do anything in the transport chair. The transport chair has small wheels and is really for getting him in and out of the car or van and into school where he transfers on to his scooter. Any opinions?
thanks. Patti Frank
