Gerard: Safety and Independence in the Woods
Gerard faced the challenge of mobility after a stroke. "The municipality offered me a 3-wheel scooter, but it wasn't a safe option due to the unpaved roads around my house and the fact that I can only use one hand to steer." Gerard took matters into his own hands and invested in a Scoozy scooter. "With Scoozy, I can safely ride through the forest around my house and enjoy nature. Moreover, the scooter provides me with the freedom to independently attend therapy, go grocery shopping, and savor a fish dish at the market." The use of a joystick and four large wheels makes Scoozy an ideal choice for Gerard.
As a recreational option, he opted for a 3-wheel bike through the WMO, allowing him to go out with his wife. "One drawback of the Easyrider for me is that I need assistance getting on and off it, so I can't use it alone."
Erik: Convenience and Speed
Erik underwent surgery on his spinal cord, resulting in reduced leg strength. For him, the Scoozy and the Van Raam Easyrider proved to be great solutions. "Grocery shopping and walking the dog are a breeze with the Scoozy. Additionally, the Scoozy is more compact, making it easy to transport in the back of a van or trailer. On the other hand, the bike offers speed and the benefits of active movement." For Erik, both mobility aids are perfect additions to his daily life, depending on his specific needs at any given moment.
Jan: Nature Enthusiast on Wheels
Jan faces lifelong effects from childhood polio and is permanently in a wheelchair. "With the bike, I can enjoy wonderful trips in the area with my wife. It allows me to stay active, which is crucial. With the Scoozy, on the other hand, I can comfortably navigate our farmyard and unpaved nature trails, places I can't reach with a bike or on foot."
