It was a perfect spring day on Thursday May 19th for Albany’s Grand Opening Event! Customers came out for the opportunity to learn more about the new products at MobilityWorks, enjoy a free lunch, and the chance to win exciting prizes. Cooper, Albany’s team “mascot”, was ready to greet customers at the door and enjoyed all of the attention. Vendors from all across the country (and even Canada) set up booths to meet with customers and display their latest mobility equipment.
Albany’s General Manger Dean Pells was very excited to be able to show clients the new store. “Unlike many of our other locations, Albany has never hosted an open house of any sort and because of that we had many long time clients, influencers, VA personnel and Medicaid Service Coordinators looking forward to this day since we started planning it late last fall.” Dean also said he was thrilled that over 200 people were able to attend!
The day started off with a training session hosted by NMEDA for Physical and Occupational Therapists. Their Conducting Wheelchair Transportation Assessment (CWTA) class is designed to help train health care professionals on the proper way to safely operate all types of mobility equipment. They were able to see first hand how to use commercial lifts, the proper way to transport their patients and how hand controls allow people in wheelchairs to operate almost any vehicle.
The new MobilityWorks Albany NY store is located at 1892 Central Ave, Suite 25 Albany, New York 12205.
