Despite living without the ability to walk, Dave Fox, 52 from Stanwick in Northamptonshire, has been able to retain independence outdoors and walk his dogs, thanks to an adapted TGA Supersport mobility scooter.
Dave had to take early retirement from teaching Design and Technology at a large Northamptonshire secondary school due to increasing mobility issues. He has undergone several operations to try and resolve the effects of falling on ice that severely damaged his spine aged 17, however Dave now uses a wheelchair and mobility scooter full-time to remain mobile.
Before his disability became too pronounced, Dave still managed to enjoy an outdoor-orientated life that included Scouting, sailing, caving and cycling. However several years ago he lost sensation in his legs and the ability to continue with outdoor pursuits was now not possible. Even the simple ability to walk his two Springer Spaniels or photograph his son's cycling club in action were impossible - until Dave discovered the TGA Supersport mobility scooter.
Find out how Dave regained his independence and how he has adapted his scooter to continue exercising his Springer Spaniels, Jake and Eddie.....http://www.tgamobility.co.uk/2014/06/17/dog-loving-retired-disabled...
