Staff

Stride Mobility’s personal assessments are conducted by our staff of Certified Assistive Technology Professionals (ATPs). We come directly to you – whether you are in a private residence, nursing home, clinic or place of business.

Stride Mobility works with multiple vendors to ensure you are fitted with the most appropriate chair to meet your mobility and lifestyle.

After your evaluation, our Rehab Coordinator will help you navigate the insurance process, gather necessary documentation and information, and advocate for you if needed. This process could take several weeks. Once your equipment is ordered, received, and assembled, your ATP and/or Rehab Technical Associate will deliver the equipment to you. At the time of delivery, they will make sure the chair is set to your specifications and show you how to safely use your new piece of equipment. If you have any questions after receiving your equipment, or possibly need to schedule service for adjustments or future repairs, our service team is ready to assist.

If you’re in the market for a new power wheelchair or are a first-time user, connect with our team and we will gladly help you find your fit.
