What a busy week we had! We have met so many great people, many of which simply fell in love with our segway wheelchair Blumil! But ok, let’s start from the beginning…
Proud to announce that one of the users on his Blumil made it to a newspaper. Read about how his life has changed after purchasing the Blumil. (page 39)
Sunbathing in Mallorca never goes out of style, so when my friends casually suggested going to Spain for vacation, I couldn’t say no, especially that I could use an electric wheelchair there. Mallorca is one of these little paradises, that you never get bored of. The problem is that it’s very sandy, and sand has never been a great friend of manual or electric wheelchairs.
Meet Angelika. Angelika is suffering from muscular dystrophy. Nevertheless, she is full of life, happy and generally one of the most positive people I’ve ever met. She wanted to try out the Blumil but was really concerned if she would be able to manage it with her disability. She wasn’t very keen on the normal electric wheelchair.
Here’s the latest video we shot in a forest with great weather. It was really good fun riding Blumil in those conditions.
As you can see from my Blog, I really like travelling. I like outdoor activities. Being in a wheelchair didn’t mean that I can’t go out or enjoy things, but my options were limited, even when using an electric wheelchair. Whenever I went somewhere with my friends, we always had to stick to pavements or we had to view things from the car, unless I had an all – terrain off road wheelchair, which was too heavy to transport!
I was walking my dog in the countryside and decide to take a shortcut through a field on my normal i2 tires. No problem passing. I think my dog is one of the greatest fans of the Blumil. Now she has a chance to cover vast distances with me. Riding through the field was actually a fantastic experience, and it wouldn’t have been possible on a regular or electric wheelchair.
In my first blog post I want to tell you a bit about myself, so you will have a better perspective when reading my next ones. I have been using a manual or electric wheelchair for the past twenty years, but I keep travelling and finding new places!
It’s not winter anymore in Poland, but since in the beginning of the year I was in the mountains and took some pics, I decided to share them with you. Look how lovely it was to ride my Blumil x2 electric wheelchair. It really was amazing fun, but – with some precautions taken!
