Nearly 61 million people in the United States live with disabilities. Almost 8.4 million of those individuals are diagnosed with physical disabilities involving mobility and paralysis. The top three causes of paralysis are stroke, followed by spinal cord injury, and multiple sclerosis. LiveEquipd aims to end the struggle of those individuals looking for particular medical equipment and medical supplies to manage their disabilities, with the LiveEquipd platform. This platform provides users with standard, adaptive and custom items that assist individuals with disabilities and their loved ones in obtaining equipment/supplies that can improve their lives. In addition to this, the platform provides a vital resource to professionals like care managers, therapists, and other personnel.

“I have been an occupational therapist since 1979 and am a specialist in wheelchairs and seating. I highly recommend this web resource as I think it will be valuable for therapists, suppliers and people with disabilities who use assistive devices.
