I love my Jazzy Select powerchair. I recently had a power lift installed on our SUV. I just made two trips on my own in the last 2 weeks. I loaded Jazzy on the lift, secured it, and drove in 4 lane traffic for approx. 20 miles. I visited my granddaughter and "walked" with her for the first time in her life (she's eight). The second trip was to meet my girlfriend at a restaurant for lunch. There were no handicapped parking places near the restaurant so I had quite a ride to the door where the hostess let me in. I was really nervous being on my own, but everything went well. I can't wait to go to the museum, and I am amazed at the amount of "paved trails" near us. Jazzy comes in very handy in the house, too, when I am too weakened to walk. I've put a clothes basket on my lap and carried it to the laundry at the other end of the house, for example. It will fit everwhere on the bottom floor of my house. I believe quality of life is much more important than what anyone thinks. Go for it!
