The Freee lives up to its name, says proud owner Claudia Bosch-Commijs. "Since January of this year, I have had a Freee. I cannot describe how much freedom the seated-Segway has given me. Especially with the upbringing of my son Niek. He is three and a half years old and, like most toddlers, runs in all directions. Giving a hand outside is a must. In my hand-pulled ADL wheelchair I need my hands to move myself. With the Freee I can just hold Niek's hand. I can easily play outside with him anywhere and enjoy him and his surroundings. The Freee drives effortlessly over the beach, through the woods and over other uneven surfaces. During King's Day, for example, there was a nice band playing. Everywhere there were bouncy castles, where Niek could enjoy himself. All this on a lawn full of obstacles and people. No problem for the agile Freee, who easily turns around his axis. Besides that you also sit a bit higher, so you have better visibility and people see me better. And the Freee looks beautiful!
I'm lucky that the chair is reimbursed by the Wmo, but that is so far more exception than rule. That's why I'm looking into setting up a small company to rent out the various seated-Segway’s in order to reach even more people with reduced mobility. I am doing this together with 2Kerr, the company that has all the brands under one roof, and where I have been working for a few months.
Here in Oss you can compare them all. The Freee turned out to be the best option for me with my disability, a spinal cord injury. There's a security in it, so you can't really fall backwards. Also, this beautiful German piece of technology responds very subtly to your weight. For example, I tried another product, but due to insufficient mass, weight, in my upper body I did not progress well. With the Freee I only have to move forward and backward a little bit and the chair is already moving. Also very nice is that I can adjust the chair at any time with a button at the seat. When I'm sitting on a terrace with my family I make sure that I can sit back a bit. When I'm on the road with Niek I drive in an active position. And when Niek wants to ride with me on my lap, I can adjust the Freee's balance to that as well.
"I can just be an independent mother and that gives a great feeling!"
