Process

Upon receiving referral for mobility, our rehab staff conducts an equipment evaluation, along with a physical or occupational therapist. Together, the therapist and our staff will discuss your personal goals and lifestyle to determine your equipment needs.

Our staff may visit your home and provide a home safety assessment to make sure equipment will work safely and effectively within the confines of your home. From there, we make recommendations about the type of equipment that works best for you. Our staff will then discuss recommendations with you and work with your doctor and insurance company to ensure all requirements are met to get your equipment in an efficient and timely manner.

After your equipment arrives, we provide you with education on chair use, maintenance and safety. We can also provide home delivery of your equipment and conduct a home safety assessment as needed. We teach you how to maneuver equipment throughout your home and ensure continued safety.
