Don’t miss this chance to get off the beaten path and explore nature with this opportunity to try different adapted off-road equipment!  This will be a casual, fun and informative day for all involved.  It will also be a nice social event to relax and connect with others. This FREE, family friendly event will be held at Camp Freedom. Their beautiful wooded property has a system of trails and paths that we can utilize as well as allow ample space for other activities like fishing and a picnic lunch for all guests. We will also be working with the University of Scranton’s Physical Therapy Department to assist with transfers and setup. Family members and friends are welcome to join as well.  There may be an opportunity for guests to try the equipment depending on turnout and availability.  Activities like fishing are available during the time periods where others might be utilizing the off-road equipment.  In an effort to accommodate everyone as best we can, depending on turnout, we may be assigning timeslots for individuals based on equipment availability and their interest.
We will be gathering off-road equipment from various sources so that there will be several different types available to try. Check out some of what you will be able to try:

We will have 2 Coyotes from Outrider USA.  These electric, compact 4 X 4’s are billed as a leader in the electric off-road evolution.  The compact, low profile machines are designed for people of all abilities and have easy transfer height of 16.5″ while maintaining 7″ off-ground clearance.  One of the coyotes will be outfitted with dual tri-pin controls to accommodate individuals with impaired hand function.

Want to try a Terrain Hopper? Called by some a mini Land Rover or the ultimate in off-road mobility equipment this electric “vehicle” has 10″ of ground clearance and can climb a nearly 35 degree grade.  As an Other Power-Driven Mobility Device (OPDMD), the Terrain Hopper can be used by a mobility impaired person anywhere a pedestrian is allowed.  This includes public beaches, state and national parks, hiking trails, and sidewalks.  There are different models and options available and the one we will have available can be operated with a joystick just like a powerchair.

What about the Action Trackchair? This device is very much like a powerchair with one exception – the tank style tracks will get you almost anywhere.

We are also working on having a few off-road capable handcycles and wheelchairs available to try.
COVID Guidelines: There will be assistance available for those who need it.  Masks must be worn by both participants and University of Scranton students when working in close contact for transfers and set-up.
