Multiple Sclerosis (MS) affects approximately 2.5 million people Worldwide and 400,000 in the US. 1 Women are more often diagnosed with MS, and first symptoms tend to strike during your prime years of life. To understand MS, picture a frayed electrical cord where the electric current short-circuits causing appliances to deactivate. The protective coating (myelin) of your nerves is a conductor for nerve pulses to transmit messages from your brain through your spinal cord for your body parts to perform specific actions. When the myelin is destroyed (demyelination) similar to a frayed electrical cord our nerve impulses in the brain or spinal cord “short-circuit”, resulting in MS symptoms like visual disorders, fatigue, numbness, and mobility and walking issues. 2 Research shows that within 10 to 15 years of an MS diagnosis, 80% of individuals will experience difficulty walking.3 Mobility devices such as powered scooters help increase activity and mobility in users.4 If you or a loved one suffer from Multiple Sclerosis and experience difficulty walking an electric mobility scooter can help keep you independent and active.
My sister, Lisa, has been living with Relapse-Remitting MS for over 20 years and during exacerbations when her MS flares-up, causing her fatigue and mobility problems, she turns to her Go-Go Elite Traveller 3 Wheel Mobility Scooter. Lisa chose a Pride Mobility Go-Go Travel Mobility Scooter because of the easy assembly and disassembly. The pieces are super lightweight making it convenient to transport and store.
“I am able to go almost anywhere, with ease and comfort; The State Fair, Oktoberfest, Football Games, Theme Parks, Grocery Stores and Department Stores. The portable design allows for easy assembly. I’m not lifting, anything to heavy(28 lbs-heaviest part) and can put it together while standing, a major plus. It fits nicely in the trunk of my car…”

Electric Mobility Scooters aren’t just for people with disabilities. They are great for aging adults who are no longer comfortable driving or individuals that have difficulty walking longer distances and want to maintain freedom outside of the home. The Drive Phoenix 3 Wheel Travel Mobility Scooter is AllegroMedical.com’s most popular electric mobility device. Users of the Phoenix 3 Wheel Mobility Scooter describe it as easy to transport with only 4 light weight parts for quick assembly and disassembly.
“Although, I haven’t owned this item long, I can already tell that it’s a great product. I recently had back surgery that failed. The Drive mobility scooter is perfect for my shopping and traveling, because I can not walk without a cane or walker or go any great distance on my own. Since it breaks down into several light weight parts, it’s easy to transport. I feel like it’s the answer to getting some part of my life back. I am very pleased with this product.” AllegroMedical.com Review by Susie Homemaker from Arkansas
