I have MS, and it had progressed to a point where I could no longer depend on just a cane for balance or support when I walked.
I wasn’t looking forward to using a walker for many reasons, but when I was still working, it had gotten to the point where I could barely walk from my desk to my car. I also found myself choosing not to go out or accept social invitations because, even with my cane, it would mean I’d have to depend on someone else’s arm to keep me from falling.
Then, from a friend at work, I learned about the LifeGlider and was lucky enough to be among the first users.
It’s changed my life.
I can now do things I wasn’t able to do before. I love that I’m not hunched over and looking down. I can instead look around, enjoy my surroundings.
LifeGlider is like no other mobility device. It sits behind you, you’re belted in, and it keeps your body upright without having to worry about your balance issues. I love that the seat is there to take some of the weight off my legs when I need it. It’s lightweight and collapsible. I can pick it up and put it in the trunk of my car.
It’s perfect for that gray area for many people like me who don’t need a wheelchair, but they need more than a cane or walker. I highly recommend this device to all out there who know that loss of mobility = loss of independence. I love mine so much that I asked to volunteer to run a LifeGlider Users Group on Facebook.
