Personal Opinion:

I am now unable to self propel on carpets, up inclines or over anything but short distances. The SmartDrive gives me the freedom to go most places and I’ve used it to fundraise for the Brittle Bone Society (who offered to get it and my Tilite chair for me) doing 50 sponsored walks of varying distances. It is best to use on smoother surfaces but can cope with dry grass and slightly stony paths. My SmartDrive has changed my life by giving me freedom to enjoy many of the things I’d had to give up, including seemingly simple things like meeting friends, going shopping, enjoying fresh air and much more.
