April 2-8 is National Public Health Week. When we think of health, many of us think of eating healthy or getting regular daily exercise. But National Public Health Week looks at more than just diet and exercise: it also includes injury avoidance, preventing disease transmission and advocates for everyone's right to a healthy life. We fully support the ideals of National Public Health Week and wanted to reinforce the message that a BraunAbility vehicle is an investment in your personal health and the health of those around you.

Decrease the Likelihood of Infection

For some people with compromised immune systems, the threat of infection is ever-present. If you could wrap yourself in bubble wrap to protect from disease, you would - but it's really not practical. A BraunAbility vehicle is the next best thing. Public transportation has too many potentially fatal bacteria to be considered safe to use. But owning your own accessible transportation means you control the climate of your own mobility vehicle. Before with transfers, you were always conscious of possible bumps and scrapes on the hard metal frame of the vehicle. Now, you never need to leave the protection of your wheelchair which means more 'I'll-just-run-to-the-store-real-quick' car trips and less 'it's-not-worth-the-risk' guilt trips. (Beach day, anyone?)

Stay Connected

The possibilities available to you with a new BraunAbility vehicle are too numerous to list. While the greater population considers basic human needs to include food, water, and shelter, we would argue the need for safe and reliable transportation closely follows. With your own BraunAbility vehicle, you can go to your son's recitals, your daughter's games, your friend's wedding, or your own morning gym workout. Nothing is off limits to you.
