LEEDS CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL
Mark is one of the members of our customer service team. He has an encyclopaedic mind for detail, loves helping people choose their scooters and is the self-nominated first tester of any new electric scooters we release.
The Micro Scooters Hospital Scheme provides scooters to hospitals around the country in order to give children and their families a little respite from what can sometimes be long and anxious stays.
At Leeds Children’s Hospital we donated 6 scooters that will be used as physiotherapy tools for children who are recovering from operations.
Lisa is a play specialist at the hospital, she said ““The scooters will be used by children in order for them to get to different departments in the hospital for procedures and X-rays, making it more fun and enjoyable. We’ll also use them to motivate children after transplantation – it’s an exciting thing to get them out of bed – and we can use them with the physios in lots of different ways.”
Lisa is pictured above testing out the scooters with liver patient Amy. Despite having her 3rd liver transplant Amy took to scooting like a duck to water. Her mum Helen said, “It’s really great to give them something to do. She was getting a bit fed up and frustrated.”
It’s meeting amazing, courageous people like Amy that make the Hospital scheme so very worthwhile. We want to donate scooter to as many hospitals as we can.
Thanks to everyone at Leeds for having us – you are all wonderful and it was a pleasure to meet you.
