Main Document

Battery powered Alert Light provides high visibility in both daylight and darkness for scooters power chairs and other mobility equipment.

Spurred by an increasing number of accidents involving those using mobility vehicles in high-traffic areas, James Wilcox, an employee of Valley Metro Transit System in Phoenix, Ariz., began building a device that would allow for better visibility of individuals using mobility equipment. After months of testing and building prototypes, the Alert Light was completed.

The battery-operated Alert Light provides high visibility in both daylight and darkness on power operated vehicles/scooters, power chairs and other mobility equipment.

Innovative safety features include the orange safety flag alerting daytime traffic and the LED light which can be set as a solid glow or flashing strobe for nighttime visibility.

"We are always concerned about the safety and protection of our Amigo owners and felt it was necessary to develop a product to keep individuals highly visible both during the day and at night ," comments Al Thieme, Amigo Founder and President.
