Physical Changes Update and Streetgliding Changes

Due to my MS progression and changing abilities, I am updating and revamping the Streetgliding WebSite.  I no longer ride a Segway.  While I enjoyed riding my Segway for over a year, it became more difficult to ride safely; particularly getting on and off.  I have now switched over to a mobility scooter 100% of the time.  I use it to get around and transfer from it to chairs, bed, etc.  I have two different scooters for different purposes.  I will cover that under the Mobility/mobility scooters page which you can get to by clicking and hovering over the links at the top of this page.  I have added a section on Apparel and Fashion.  I intend to present options to make dressing   easier and safer.    A new section called “Product Review” will present items that can be purchased on line or in stores that make everything you do easier and safer.  I want to promote an easier way of doing things to give those who have challenges, like me, options.  As a full time working professional (engineer at a large Aerospace company), who just recently retired after 32 years in the business, I have been on a never ending search to purchase or create ways to improve my (and your) quality of life.   I am happy, and excited about where the future will take me.  When I find difficulties in moving forward due to disability, I use that to spark creativity in finding solutions.  I will share those ideas with you here and hope you will add your experiences as well.  Come along and enjoy the ride.  We will go ‘streetgliding’ together.
