Your experience as a mobility scooter user / wheelchair user during the COVID-19 Pandemic

Hello all, thank you for reading my post. Please do not hesitate to give me feedback and ask further questions. 

The Design Age Institute (part of the Royal College of Art) is collaborating with Centaur Robotics. The company has developed a self balancing vehicle which is compact and manoeuvrable.  You can see the vehicle on their website www.centaurrobotics.com Production is anticipated to commence mid 2021 and the company is now looking to implement features that will allow autonomous control to provide social distancing. 

I would love to hear from people in this community - who rely on mobility scooters or are wheelchair users - about heir experience using your device in public/shared spaces during the Pandemic.

For instance those are some question I would like to ask you:
  • How has your daily life been impacted during the Pandemic?
  • Is it easy to respect social distancing measures with your device?
  • How safe do you feel being a mobility scooter/ wheelchair user during the Pandemic?
  • What you wish your mobility scooter/ wheelchair could have done better or differently?
Please feel free to answer below, some, all or more questions. 
You can also get directly in touch with me at <moderator removed - pending review>
I am also available to meet online, I would relish the opportunity to speak with you!

Many thanks in advance, 
Juliette
