Staff from our Sydney store went along and helped over 80 students get familiar with mobility scooter operations, technology and etiquette.
Jane Ramsey, the Sydney manager said that the aim was to introduce different types of available products which the students could all try – both scooters and wheelchairs.
“We took the range of portable foldup Luggies, the pull-apart Monarch Buzz the new Gatsby (which was a real winner), and the Tesla. Students asked various questions regarding weight carrying, price, who would use the scooters and the kinds of distance a scooter would typically travel,” said Jane.
They all took their turns in riding around on the scooters and were shown some of the more tricky safety issues that a person might encounter on their travels and how to avoid them.
