4 Wheeler with a Roll Bar

Hugo says his Great Grandpa has no trouble keeping up outside when he rides his 3 wheel scooter. As a matter of fact, sometimes he's too fast and is slightly accident prone. Using a site like mobility compare might be a good idea next time he's buying a scooter so he gets one that is stable on rough ground because at 96 G-Grandpa is still a 'going-concern'.

G-Grandpa went over backward on his scooter when it was new and the seat was too far back and he was going up an incline. A plane flew over, G-Grandpa looked up and over he went. Luckily there was a grassy place where his head hit as he slid sideways and backwards off the scooter.

It wasn't easy getting the scooter upright. G-Grandpa was fine and was back on his feet in a minute and he and Grandma Heather lifted the scooter back onto it's wheels, adjusted the seat and he was back in business (with a lesson learned). is a site where you can can compare various mobility products from scooters to hearing aids and everything in between. Maybe we should get G-Grandpa a helmet to protect his noggin then find a new scooter with a roll bar!

While you are at Mobility Care, please sign up for their 'twice a month' newsletter. Trust me on this one, you will need all the help you can get to stay mobile and comfortable as you get older. Who knows you might live to be 96 like my G-Grandpa and NEED to get around to do your chores.
