South Surrey resident Doug Isaac has been able to turn his mobility challenges into a business opportunity.
Isaac said while he’s physically fit, he has challenges walking long distances due to a series of injuries and surgeries, including a hip replacement.
It was his neighbour, Kasia Thesen, who suggested to him that should consider an eMuza scooter, which is a battery-operated system that can be folded into the size of a suitcase in less than 10 seconds.
“I did not want to use the traditional 250-pound (scooter),” said Isaac, who brought one of the eMuza scooters to the Peace Arch News office for a demonstration on Tuesday.
“I have a small compact car, I don’t have any help and when this came in, Kasia goes, ‘Jeez, Doug, this would be great for you.’”
Isaac and Thesen took the idea and turned it into a business, eMuza Mobility.
Isaac, who is the chief sales officer, said Thesen obtained exclusive rights to sell eMuza in North America, and they launched the White Rock-based business two months ago.
