  • A Holiday Saved - Cruising with a Knee Scooter

  • The dream of a perfect holiday can often take unexpected turns, as it did for one of our recent customers, whose eagerly anticipated skiing trip was abruptly put on hold due to a broken ankle. This setback, however, transformed into a heart-warming story of resilience and newfound mobility, thanks to the humble knee scooter.
    A Ski Holiday Turned Caribbean Cruise
    Just weeks before setting off to hit the slopes, a misstep resulted in a broken ankle, leading to the cancellation of our customer's skiing holiday. Rather than let this dampen her spirits, she looked at an alternative: booking a Caribbean cruise with the deposit from the skiing trip. However, how to navigate the elegant evenings on a cruise ship with crutches?
    Discovering the Knee Scooter
    Initially daunted by the prospect of navigating a holiday with crutches, our customer researched online and found out about the knee walker! She came to us and tried out our Orthomate. The emotional relief was so profound that it moved her to tears—tears of joy at the prospect of gliding effortlessly through the cruise ship's corridors, maintaining both her elegance and independence.
    Mobility with Ease: The Knee Scooter Experience
    Flying to her cruise departure point presented no issue, as the knee scooter was treated like any other mobility aid by the airline, allowing her to use it right up to the cabin door. This ease of mobility extended throughout her holiday, from embarking on the cruise ship to exploring the decks and participating in activities.
    One handy tip she learned along the way was the art of reversing into elevators—a simple technique that made navigating the ship even smoother. This small adjustment to her approach made a significant difference, enabling her to manoeuvre with confidence and ease.
    Dressing Up and Feeling Fabulous
    One of the unexpected highlights of using a knee scooter was how it complemented her evening attire. She found that the knee scooter not only supported her mobility but also did so with a style that matched her grace. The ability to dress up and feel fabulous, without mobility constraints dictating her wardrobe choices, was a game-changer.
    A Holiday Remembered
    What started as a story of disappointment turned into an unforgettable holiday adventure. The knee scooter not only facilitated ease of movement but also restored a sense of normalcy and independence, allowing our customer to fully engage in the joys of her holiday. From the decks of the cruise ship to the warmth of the Caribbean sun, she discovered the freedom to explore and enjoy her holiday to the fullest.
    This customer story is a testament to the transformative power of finding the right mobility aid. The knee scooter, proved to be the perfect companion for a holiday adventure, turning potential limitations into opportunities for freedom and joy. Whether navigating the corridors of a cruise ship or the journey of daily life, the knee scooter stands out as a mobility aid for independence for those on the path to recovery.
