When we caught up with David Brown, he was darting around his kitchen baking a cake in the picturesque town of Alva, Clackmannanshire.  However, David hasn’t always been this mobile.  Having lived with polio since he was a young child, he’s no stranger to relying on mobility aids and has had to at various points throughout his life.  Now though, he’s gained flexibility and independence thanks to his brand new customisable powerchair, the Quantum Q6 Edge 2.0. 

“I will recommend Mobility Solutions’ service and advice.  They’ve helped me get my life back.”

From WAV to Wheelchair

David has spent most of his life walking with the support of leg braces.  As he got older, however, he found using a wheelchair more comfortable.  It was when he was searching for a wheelchair accessible vehicle (WAV) from Mobility Solutions’ sister company, Allied Mobility that he discovered the range of mobility aids available to him.

Some months after purchasing his accessible vehicle, David attended an event in Glasgow where Mobility Solutions was showcasing a range of powered mobility products.  This was where he met Sarah, one of Mobility Solutions’ expert mobility advisors.  David told us;

“Although I was interested in the chair and had a chance to try it at the event, the fact that Sarah suggested that she bring one or two out for me to see gave me the chance to have a long hard think about which one to choose.” 

The Home Demonstration

Not long afterward, Sarah arranged with David to visit him at home for a home demonstration of two powerchairs so he could find out more and compare the two in the comfort of his own home.  The two spent time discussing the features of each product and David even took both powerchairs out for a test drive to see how they felt to drive.  After David decided that the Q6 Edge suited all his needs, Sarah measured him to make sure the bespoke chair fit him perfectly and then took him through the additional extras available, including a handy mobile phone holder that attached to the arm of the chair.  Having made his selection, David went ahead and ordered the chair.  David told us;

“The home demonstration was very thorough and allowed me to be sure that the product I chose was right for me.”

Happily Ever After

David excitedly waited for a few weeks until the chair was built and delivered to store, after which time Sarah visited him once again with his new chair ready for him.  Since then, David has been thrilled with his chair, which has given him more freedom and independence than he ever imagined he could have.  On the odd occasion that there’s been an issue, Mobility Solutions’ skilled aftercare team have visited him and made sure It’s been back working in no time.  David now enjoys leisurely days in his garden or day trips out in his powerchair without having to struggle with his mobility.  David concludes;

“I will recommend Mobility Solutions’ service and advice.  They’ve helped me get my life back.”
