Daniel's TravelScoot Accident

From Daniel

As I was entering a building on my TravelScoot, a heavy door closed on my right foot; the foot had been resting on the scooter's foot rest.

I suffered Metatarsalphalangeal joint sprain -also known as Turf Toe. (see Wikipedia)

The foot took seven weeks to heal; there was much pain and swelling.

Placing the foot on the triangular frame, below the seat, instead of on the foot rest, may reduce exposure to collision, when going through unfamiliar doorways, and the like.
