Regaining and Remaining Mobile

Many MSers use wheelchairs or scooters and are faced with having to learn new ways of remaining or regaining mobility. Here are two web sites that are useful to wheelers --

New Mobility
: The magazine for active wheelchair users
The New Mobility mission tells us they encourage integrating active wheelers into mainstream society and participation in all areas of life in the disability community. They bring quality articles for an under-served market -- that's us! -- on a wide range of topics from spirituality to sexuality and everything in between.

Mobility-Advisor, a Wheel Chair Mobility Resources and Information site
Mobility-Advisor tells us it provides an educational guide for everything about wheelchairs and accessories. There is information on all types of mobility devices, including wheelchairs for dogs!

On a personal note, I rely on my Amigo. Al Thieme built the first power operated vehicle (POV), or as we call them scooters or carts, in 1968 and a new industry was born. I am thankful for my Amigo every day. Thank you, Al, for mobilizing so many of us, and happy 40th anniversary!
