A popular television show once proclaimed "To Go Where No Man Has Gone Before".
We are anxiously awaiting our son's new Scout, and we love them so much, because they have allowed us to take him "Where Everybody Else Has Been Before".
The Scout has truly opened many doors and expanded horizons for our family!

We have been using Convaid chairs for 23 years.David our oldest son got his first Cruiser Classic at 5 years old and used for 10 years then it was passed down to his yourger brother Joshua. David got a new bigger Cruiser. These chairs are so good and they hold up so well. Last year we got the boys both the new Cruiser's and I don't know who loves them more the boys or me. The boys are so comfortable and the new style canopy is so easy to use. Everytime we are out and meet other parents they comment on how nice these chairs are and ask where we got them. You can buy cheaper but you cannot buy better chairs than Convaid. They have wonderful customer service and are a great company to work with. They are a five star company with 5 star products. They help make the lives of children with special needs and their parents lives better .. Thank You Convaid

My daughter Kasey is 23 years old. She got her Convaid Cruiser at age 10.. We used it everyday, and never had the first problem with it..So when we decided she needed a new chair, there was know hesitation in getting a new Convaid! Her new Rodeo Tilt arrived last month and so far it is AWESOME!!

Our grandson, Mason (age 11), received his Cruiser 16 just over a year ago and we couldn't be happier! We use it on a daily basis! The previous wheel chair was so heavy and bulky! Parts kept breaking and coming off, and when I tried to re-order them, I was informed that the company had gone out of business and I could no longer get parts. Let me say that we are so blessed to have our Cruiser!
We met the nice folks at Convaid personally last year during the Mobility Expo, just after receiving the Cruiser. They were so helpful and wonderful to talk with. We discussed additional items that we might need. True to their word, when they arrived back at their office, the following week the package was delivered to our home!
You can depend on this company and its great service to assist you with any of your mobility needs! They go the extra mile!

Feeling trapped in our house because of our son's wandering, aversion to holding hands and him becoming overly anxious and tired, we were introduced to Convaid through an adaptive seating clinic at our children's hospital. We waited months for our insurance to approve this stroller and finally brought it home a little over a month ago.
One word - AMAZING! If you are struggling with your insurance to approve this, know that it is worth it. We waited over six months and this stroller has become invaluable to us. My son loves his new chair and we love being more social and mobile. I appreciate that it looks like a "normal" stroller and doesn't look out of place, very stylish and durable. This stroller is nothing short of awesome!
Thank you Convaid for giving us the ability to get out and go!!
