3 Generations of "Electricianeering"
I first learned about add-on mobility assistance devices about a year ago. The conditions which had made a wheelchair a necessary part of my life 5 years earlier, had progressed, making it increasingly more difficult for me to push my manual chair. The distances which I could travel and the surfaces I could traverse became increasingly more limited. At some point during that time, I began looking into what other options might be available to me to improve my mobility and increase my range. Initially, most of what I found were large, heavy, cumbersome, resembling golf carts and requiring special equipment or a specially equipped vehicle, to transport them. Expensive. Not ideal.
At this point, my search re-focused on finding some sort of power assist device that was simple, versatile, unobtrusive and easy to transport. As I began this journey, I quickly realized that anyone whose mobility is challenged by Spinal Cord Injury (SCI), neuromuscular, musculoskeletal, various neuropathies and a host of other conditions which cause those challenges, could benefit from these technologies. I also learned that some of the most innovative of these technologies are not readily available or even offered for sale in the United States, mostly due to red tape. We have since found ways to cut some of this red tape, obtain and make these devices available to our customers. The device featured on our “Gallery” page, is my own Batec Electric, connected to my TiLite ZRA Series 2 wheelchair. Batec Mobility of Barcelona, Spain offers six other basic models, which they sell worldwide. They just don’t offer them for sale in the U.S.
