    I don't use my SmartDrive that often, but I'm always happy to have it when I want to head to the neighborhood shops, restaurants, or barber shop. It's helpful for shopping or anywhere with a lot of rolling around (not offroad). I really like to pair mine with my FreeWheel. The FreeWheel makes it much easier and safer to ride over cracks and bumps along the path. My biggest complaint is with the SmartDrive wristband. I think mine may be an older version, but it has two major problems: (1) the wristband battery life is by far the weak link in the SmartDrive system. It dies much faster than the actual unit and requires a good charge before use; it's not something you can just strap on and go without planning ahead of time. And (2) the rubber wristband itself (not the module) breaks quickly and must be replaced frequently. I think newer models might have adopted a better, stronger system similar to the clasp on a watch band.

      My son uses his all day, every day and loves it. He’s 15 years post, c6/7 and it has saved his shoulders. Simple things like going up a small ramp getting into his van, rolling around the house and back yard, anywhere and everywhere.

          A friend of mine uses it everywhere. To carry a cup of coffee from the kitchen to the living room. From living room to bathroom. You can go slow with them, but she goes wide open. Scared the s#&$t out of me.

              i say keep your appointment. If you can't go outside, you can always do it inside. The process takes long enough as is, so why make take even longer?

                  Weather permitting?

                  That would be a good test to see how these smartdrives function in the crap weather. Not that going out in the pissing rain is a welcome decision but sometimes, needs must.
