My Luggie Experience

Several years ago, I was diagnosed with an adult form of muscular dystrophy, a disabling condition that progressively reduces overall muscle strength and ability to walk. When my doctor recommended I get an electric motorized chair, I was more than a bit hesitant due to my relatively young age (49); I didn’t want to look “old” riding one of the boring antiquated devices currently on the market. Eventually, I came across the “Luggie” scooter on the internet made by the FreeRider Corporation. It’s high-tech, modern, compact fold-down design was like none I had ever seen; it actually looked “cool”. I then contacted one of the FreeRider representatives (Randy) who explained the product and its features and I decided to purchase one to give it a try.

Before getting my Luggie, I basically became a shut-in, as my condition prevented me from doing even the most basic things like going to the grocery store. Soon after receiving my Luggie scooter, my wife and I were able to go to the grocery together without me having to lean on her and my canes for walking support, which was a huge relief for the both of us.

The Luggie scooter not only looks good, but the fully adjustable and fluid hand controls and auto-braking feature make it very easy to operate and navigate in tight spaces. In addition, its lightweight design allows you to simply fold it up and store in the trunk of any car, truck or SUV.

Thanks to all the folks over at FreeRider for this great device – you have made me a customer for life!
