I'm writing on behalf of my Dad who was diagnosed with PD tihs summer. He is thinking of buying a mobility scooter so that he and my Mum can still get about in the local towns. They are in their early eighties and Mum is still driving. Getting a scooter in an out of a car looks like it might be problematic and I wondered if anyone had experience of hoists, ramps etc. There is a scooter called a quingo flyte that looks very good as it stows itself in your car on rails that pull out from the back of the car. Expensive but I wondered about second hand.... Has anone tried this model or can you recommend an alternative?
Any experiences and advice would be really useful.
