This is a wonderful power add-on! Since my SMOOV arrived, I have been able to travel with work, join my friends on walks around the city, go to the supermarket independently, and even go on a night out (the SMOOV significantly improved my dancing). I no longer need to be pushed everywhere and I can even hold my partner’s hand when strolling side by side. I now genuinely hate going out without my SMOOV.
I am able to tackle hills including steep ones with ease, I just turn the control dial and go! Meaning I no longer need to exert energy. Uneven camber is not even an issue for the SMOOV and it is reliable, speedy, and safe. I always feel in control which is essential.
I love that I can choose between continuing to self-propel with the SMOOV just giving me a little boost, or just steering with the SMOOV doing all the work. Stopping is just as easy – you simply touch the dial, as is changing speeds – you simply turn the dial forwards/backwards. Bumpy uneven paths are not a problem for it and it’s really easy to clip/remove by myself onto my Quickie Nitrum manual wheelchair.
Celtic Rehab (supplier) were incredibly helpful and supported me in learning how to use the device. They also troubleshoot any issues and followed up to see how I was getting on since they handed the device over. I am so genuinely grateful to Access Your Life and Celtic for collectively enabling me to access this wonderful piece of equipment. I love it!
