Disabled Dog-Lover Retains Freedom on TGA Mobility Scooter

Postby iDISCreative » Thu Jun 26, 2014 11:20 am

Dave Fox, 52 from Stanwick in Northamptonshire, is unable to walk, but has been able to retain independence outdoors and continue to exercise his two Springer Spaniels thanks to an adapted TGA Supersport mobility scooter. http://www.tgamobility.co.uk/product/supersport

When Dave was 17 years old he had a heavy fall on ice and severely damaged his spine. Throughout his twenties and thirties his mobility issues became increasingly worse and even though he underwent several major operations he now has to use a wheelchair and mobility scooter to remain mobile. The lack of everyday mobility meant he was forced into early retirement from teaching Design and Technology and Dave began to lose his independence and freedom.

In his younger years, and before his disability became as pronounced, Dave was very much an outdoor enthusiast enjoying sailing, caving and cycling. A keen animal lover, Dave had always kept dogs, and one of his main enjoyments in life was walking his two Springer Spaniels, however, this also became impossible after he lost sensation in his legs a few years ago - until Dave discovered a new way to 'walk' his dogs, with the aid of a TGA Supersport mobility scooter.

This 'Harley Davidson' style mobility scooter has brought Dave a new lease of life and independence. It is an off-road scooter that is renowned for its market leading stability and manoeuvrability, especially when negotiating countryside tracks and trails. Dave has adapted the mobility scooter by sourcing a Norwegian 'Springer' dog-exercising device which enables him to exercise his two dogs comfortably and safely.
