I have been a keen skier since 1981 and I am now 54 years old working as a full time GP. Until 2002 I had no problems of any sort with my knees and was able to ski all day. From 2002 gradually skiing became more and more painful and investigations revealed I have extensive osteoarthritis in both knees of such severity as to warrant knee replacements should I wish.

By 2008 a skiing holiday consisted of one or two very painful slow runs in the morning, reading a book at a restaurant until my friends returned for lunch and then one or two painful slow runs in the afternoon before slowly returning to the resort.

In 2008 I heard about the ski~mojo and used it in Zermatt for the first time in March 2009. To say it was an improvement is a gross understatement, it was an absolute revelation.

I weighed 14 stones 7 pounds on that holiday and I found that with the ski~mojo set to its maximum support I was able to ski with virtually no pain of any sort, as fast as I wished, and despite having weak thigh muscles as a result of the osteoarthritis I found little fatigue after an entire days skiing.

I was able to ski the entire week without difficulties or cumulative fatigue. It took only a single run to adapt to the wonderful support provided by the ski~mojo, the sensation when skiing with a ski~mojo is quite excellent, best described as weighing one third of your normal weight with skis that seem glued to the snow. There is no loss of control, indeed if anything control is enhanced particularly on ice as the springs adapt to chattering across ridges much faster than your muscles can.

Also it is easy wearing a ski~mojo to adopt and return from a full schuss position without any strain at all.

I have the ski~mojo to thank for allowing me to return to the pleasures of near painless fatigue free skiing.
