Amazing new invention to keep us mobile!

I wanted to forewarn everyone...if you are squeamish about seeing others off meds; don't watch

If you can get past that, you will meet Max who channeled his frustration into something really wonderful for anyone who has issues with walking. I am sharing this in hope that he gets more recognition and funding. It also unintentionally conveys how horrible it is to be trapped inside your own body

I hope it is more/better than those, probably designed by people w/o walking challenges

I stated 'similar' ... I should have stated 'Max's much improved model'. My bad. Sorry for not being more concise.

WOW. I am going to research how I can help him move forward with this! and I want one. I always wnted a Segway, this is better!

In a quick attempt (my dog needs to go out) could not find him. When I come in and after Breakfast i"m going to settle down and find Max. Anyone want to join me?

Bravo!!! Although I'm not there yet, I would love to have a Country Flyer so I can be out and about when I need it. Thank you Max!!

I so agree, this is a fantastic device, and I hope that Max can find a way to get it to a public who quite clearly would like to be able to buy one.

That is something my husband needs. Please keep us posted for when it becomes available.

I would feel so much better with this and wouldn't be scared to walk by myself ! Gosh I want it ! Yes, thank you Max !!

Thanks for posting this. I'm mostly in a wheelchair now. This really gives me hope.

What a great idea. Now put pedals on it so you can ride a bicycle and get exercise at the same time.
