At MobilityWorks and other quality mobility dealers throughout the country, you will often hear the term “needs analysis” when describing what takes place at an initial visit. So what is a needs analysis? In very general terms, it’s a series of questions and answers, and the collection of key measurements, that a Certified Mobility Consultant uses to determine what the best vehicle conversion, or adaptive equipment, would best meet your specific mobility needs, lifestyle, family situation, and individual preferences. Not every conversion is going to be right for everyone , so it’s important to learn about different wheelchair ramps, lifts, hand controls, and seating options during this process.
MobilityWorks is proud to announce that we are offering 2.39% financing on select 2016 Dodge Grand Caravan SE’s. All of these vans will be equipped with a VMI Northstar E manual in-floor ramp that is easy to stow and operate. This conversion was designed for wheelchair users with a caregiver driver – and unlike most manual ramps, the Northstar E requires no bending over or heavy lifting.

Every summer all eyes in the world of tennis are focused on the courts just outside of London, England. There is always the allure of the best players in the world dressed in all white and the famous grounds and gardens of “The Club”. However, this year there was something new for spectators to keep an eye on. For the first time in history, Wimbledon featured Ladies and Men’s Wheelchair singles matches. The top 8 wheelchair tennis players from both sides competed for the inaugural championship, and a very nice paycheck. There was just under $225,000 up for grabs in the wheelchair division alone!
It has been a busy start to the summer for our team in Londonderry, New Hampshire. Last month they participated in Granite State Independent Living’s 5th annual Hoops on Wheels fundraiser. Each team participating raised $1,000, which helps promote life with independence for people with disabilities and seniors through advocacy, information, education and support. The Londonderry team fell short of the championship game, but they will be back next year!
