Amigo Mobility

The “friendly wheelchair” was invented in a homeowner’s garage in Bridgeport, Michigan in 1968. The founder, Al Thieme, had the ultimate motivation to create a mobility product in order to help a family member that was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. The end result of his hard work was The Amigo, as it was brand-named, and it initiated the entire “mobility scooter” industry. Since it’s inception, thousands upon thousands of people from around the world with mobility limitations have experienced the personal freedom and independence on their American made Amigo power operated vehicles (POVs).
