Seating Specialist

New West Medical specializes in matching an individual's needs to the proper equipment.  New West Medical's Assistive Technology Professionals work closely with individuals, doctors and caregivers to decide which equipment options are best.  The process of designing a chair is a group effort focused on one person's current and future needs.

One Wheelchair Every Five Years?

What if your needs and condition change?  Changing needs and conditions are a problem many wheelchair users face.  Most insurance companies cover one wheelchair every five years.  This mean you need to get a wheelchair that suits your needs now, and can be modified if your conditions change in the future.  For example, not all wheelchairs can be modified to tilt, use head controls or accommodate a custom molded cushion.  Get the correct chair the first time.

What does New West Medical do for you?

New West Medical takes care of their patients.  New West Medical does a custom fit including pressure mapping, and molded cushions when needed.  One of New West Medical’s fully certified Assistive Technology Professionals will perform all the needed measurements during a consultation with the patient to assess the patient’s current and future needs.  Power wheelchairs have complicated monitoring by insurance companies, so New West Medical coordinates between the insurance companies and the doctor to be sure everything goes smoothly.  New West Medical wants every wheelchair patient to sit comfortably, so even after the wheelchair is delivered New West Medical performs wheelchair modifications to help avoid wounds.  You get only one company for the next five years.  Be sure to choose the one that will take care of your needs and fit you in the wheelchair that is right for you.
