MOBILITY SCOOTER-Friend or Foe? By Mr. Morris Barwick.Mr. Barwick, as a retired Mechanical Engineer and private pilot, has shown himself to be an observant student of the things learned about safety over twenty-three years of riding mobility scooters. He presents his experiences so that others will find it interesting and educational. The ongoing battle over the choice of three wheels vs. four wheels is addressed in order to enable the reader to make an informed choice on considerations when purchasing. Mr. Barwick has made a hobby of collecting and using of quite a few scooters. The engineering curiosity in learning about each has resulted in an outstanding exhibition of insight that spans the field of available scooters. Although the start of collecting was motivated by looking at the engineering qualities of each scooter, he was later overtaken by Post-Polio Syndrome restricting all walking ability and changing curiosity to necessity and dependence.He covers so many things in this book; it is hard to equate each point as an answer to a specific question. Summary of Points covered:•Physical limitations of rider and how that should be considered in selection.•Major usage activities, and how that will impact selection.•A stability chart of three wheel vs. four wheel scooters.•A discussion of ramp selection with ground clearance considerations.•Major awareness requirements when riding on the road.•What to do when climbing a steep grade to ease motor demands.•How scooter brakes differ from automobile brakes and the dangers thereof.•Accessory suggestions such as lift chairs and transfer boards. Mr. Barwick is free to speak candidly as he is not financially affiliated with any manufacturer or supplier of scooters or parts.•The rear trailing wheels on a “chair” type scooter will require careful handling to prevent wall damage.•Transporting a scooter by car, van or as a passenger on a commercial airline.•You can widen any doorway 2 inches by easily replacing the existing hinges with “Offset” hinges that swing the door flush with the door jam!•How a wheelchair can be a “Trailer” and controlled by trailer person. In summary, this book shows that Mr. Barwick has given careful consideration on what the “Newbie” as well as the seasoned rider should know about scooter enjoyment and safety.
