When Roland Buik and his wife Helena decided to make life easier for themselves, they knew exactly where to go. Since Roland had a stroke two years ago and lost the use of his right hand, he had been using a manual wheelchair to get around. However, he and his wife were keen for Roland to gain back some of his independence.
Already familiar with Mobility Solutions from watching the television adverts, the couple popped into their local store at Dobbies Garden Centre near Carluke to see what was available. As Helena explains, they weren’t entirely sure if there was anything that would be suitable. Helena explains;
“We were looking for something that would mean we could all get out as a family but we wouldn’t have to always push Roland in his wheelchair. Initially, we thought that Roland wouldn’t be able to use a mobility scooter with the use of only one hand. But we were soon proved wrong.”
Whilst browsing, they chatted to mobility advisor, Mark, who explained to them the range of products available and the Buiks were soon trying a range of mobility scooters. When Roland sat in the Pride Go-Go Sport, he found the comfort and the ease of use meant it was just what he was looking for.
Sturdy and reliable whilst also breaking down into five compact pieces, the Go-Go Sport is one of Mobility Solutions bestselling boot scooters. A large 18amp battery sits snugly under its supportive swivel seat and its adjustable delta tiller makes the scooter comfortable and easy to control. The Go-Go Sport’s large 9-inch solid tyres tackle pavements with ease without having to worry about punctures. Full LED lighting at the front and rear mean that Roland can enjoy getting out an about whatever the weather.
Since Roland received his new scooter, he has been able to be in control of his own independence and visit the shops and friends and family, a fantastic difference to how life used to be.
His wife Helena concluded;
“We can’t thank Mobility Solutions enough. Our advisor was knowledgeable, approachable but never pressured us. It was a surprise to us that we ended up buying in the day but we had such a great experience and loved it!”
