TGA Minimo Plus Folding Mobility Scooter

David Multon, 77, who lives in Salcombe and Dorking, has taken ownership of a new type of folding Minimo Plus mobility scooter so he can continue enjoying a rewarding lifestyle despite living with mobility difficulties.

Before retiring David spent most of his career working in the chemical additives industry. He was a successful UK Managing Director for both a German company and later his own business which both supplied stabilizing agents to the PVC manufacturing sector. Outside of work he was a keen sailor and over many years owned several boats moored in Salcombe harbour. He regularly took his son out water skiing and was also an enthusiastic tennis and badminton player.
However, David experienced a slipped disc in 1994 that started a sequence of back issues resulting in several operations. He was paralyzed for a period from the waist down and spent two years in a wheelchair. Nevertheless, with his go-getting and positive attitude, David managed to achieve some ability to walk again on crutches however with increasing breathlessness from pulmonary fibrosis and heart disease, tackling longer distances and hills is now impossible. This has all changed with his new lightweight Minimo Plus mobility scooter that folds and fits in a car boot.
