    Amazing kid there!

    She knew what she needed to improve her life and it wasn't available anywhere--so she made it herself.

    I could use one too.

    There must be many people who can walk sometimes with assistance but use a wheelchair at other times on a typical day-- people with neurological problems like MS, where your mobility can vary from day to day, even moment to moment.

    I hope that Sadie can patent her invention!

    She looks to be about 8 years old. I love her mind. I would buy one of those in a heartbeat! I'v been looking for something like that for years. I imagine it would be great for MS and stroke as well as many other conditions. I hope she keeps inventing!

    I want one. There are times when I'm out and about using my walker and my legs scream for a time out before I'm finished.

    Virginia, I do have a scooter, but sometimes we forget to bring it, thinking I'll be fine for the quick trip to the store.
