What is provided?
All our members are provided with:

- Manual Wheelchairs & Pushers
- Escorts for People with Sensory Disabilities
Scooters have either three or four wheels with several different makes whose controls differ slightly. The scooters can be operated with one hand either left or right therefore usable by someone who has had a stroke. Speed of the scooters can be controlled from a slow crawl to four miles per hour.
The scooters are key operated and the brakes are fully automatic and are always on until you press the lever to move, the scooter will move either forward or backwards when moving. To stop the scooter all you do is let go of the lever.
All of our scooters are EASY to use.
