I've located a scooter; my sister has one at the hospice she works in and they've agreed that I can borrow it if I can get to Temple to get it. I have some questions about it.
Since I'll have to use it at work..will it fit into a handicapped stall in the bathroom? I'm concerned about how I will manage it in there. I can't practice at home, because our home is not even wheel chair friendly, much less scooter friendly.
Looks like we'll have to rent a trailer to go get it; our truck has a flat topper on it and it's too much for the two of us "girls" in the house to remove it.
I'm scheduled for surgery tomorrow - I've been using a scooter (Free Spirit from Essential Medical) for the last week or so here at home. I live in a small ranch style home - small bedroom and bathroom. I've had no trouble navigating tight turns and corners. As I said, my bathroom is small - smaller than the average handicap stall - I'm able to manage okay - I don't think you will have any problems with it.
I have a knee walker, but I'm hoping to get the scooter for work, because I live so close to work (it's less than a block and I normally walk there). I don't want to cross a busy street on the knee walker. I think both of you are referring to "knee walkers". I'm referring to a mobility scooter (motorized).
