1,100+ US veterans have Segway PTs thanks to Segs4Vets

More than 1,100 US veterans have received donated Segway PTs from charity Segs4Vets. This organisation also offers grants of US$1,500 towards purchase.

The most recent recipient is Curtis Johnson, and he tells his story (with video) to CBS. He notes how he’s been in and out a wheelchair for the last 2 years:

“It hasn’t been easy. The way they look at me [in my wheelchair] at outings, it took a toll after a while,” Curtis Johnson said.

But that all changed when Curtis replaced the wheelchair with a Segway PT. Jerry Kerr, founder of Segs4Vets, explains:

“The whole perception of life changes when you’re on a Segway [PT].”
