At ADAPTS, we’re proud to share information about the quality products we find on our travels. Our favorite product this month is ATTO, a mobility scooter that is easy to carry, foldable and fits in the overhead storage space on an airplane.
With all the news about mobility scooters and wheelchairs being damaged or even lost by airlines recently, this is a product someone you know may want to consider even as a back-up when traveling.
You can read more about the amount of damage to wheelchairs and scooters on our expert, John Morris’s blog.There’s also a recent story of a young woman who was without her wheelchair for 10 hours after JetBlue lost it en route to attend a bridesmaid’s party. She told an NPR reporter on “All Things Considered” that the experience was terrifying because her wheelchair is her independence—and it was lost.
