"When my dad was discharged as an inpatient we received the standard discharge info, i.e. follow ups appointments and basic medical supply companies, but we had no clue how or where to go to make the house wheelchair accessible etc. A lot of personal investigation and research is required to enter into your “new normal;” a “one stop shop” would be very helpful."
Lita Wallace,Coordinator, The Shirley Ryan AbilityLab Sports and Fitness Center
"The amount of information our patients/clients have to sort through, or have access to, on the internet is really staggering. I think it is helpful to have a resource that can help make some decisions easier for patients at a very complicated time in their lives."
Sara Hobbs,PT, DPT, NCS Therapy Manager, Spinal Cord Innovation Center The Shirley Ryan AbilityLab
“I have been an occupational therapist since 1979 and am a specialist in wheelchairs and seating. I highly recommend this product as I think it will be valuable for therapists, suppliers and people with disabilities who use assistive devices.”
Jessica Presperin Pedersen,MBA, OTR/L, ATP/SMS Research Assistant Professor at Shirley Ryan AbilityLab Northwestern University Department of PM&R
“LiveEquipd is helping meet an important need for therapists and clients. Adaptive equipment needs and the products available are changing so quickly, its difficult to keep up with. A platform that brings the latest and most useful products into the view of consumers quickly and efficiently helps people meet their equipment needs and do the things need and want to do sooner.”
Molly Bathje,Assistant Professor at Rush University Academic Coordinator and Assistant Professor- Occupational Therapy Department
“Time is a precious commodity for both clinicians and consumers, so it is vital to have tools (like an app) that can expedite the process of finding assistive technology and equipment that best suit an individual’s needs. Having one resource to find ways to meet their needs addresses many of the barriers that currently exist!”
