My power wheelchair!

I bought my Otto Bock B500 power wheelchair in 2005 and it's given me 12+ years of amazing service.

I've traveled on asphalt, concrete, gravel, snow, through the rain, grass, carpet and stone. The only maintenance and issues over the years have been related to replacing the wheels and batteries and one major expense when the circuit failed.

It's made in Germany but serviced and distributed by Otto Bock, India.

Sure, there are now plenty of players in the field today, but Otto Bock has never let me down. Expect to read plenty of stories about me and my wheelchair.
