Witnessing this loss of independence, he worked in the evenings, after his day job, to create an innovative form of mobility. Thieme went on to invent the first ever power operated vehicle/scooter –the Amigo.Named for being the “friendly wheelchair,” Thieme met with many organisations, such as the MS Society, to explain the Amigo’s benefits and functionality. Consequently, Amigo Mobility International, Inc. was founded on November 12, 1968 and an entire industry was born. Today, as Amigo Mobility’s chairman and founder, Al continues to be actively involved in the company daily.
