Access Medical has chosen to specialize within the specific category of Complex Rehab Mobility. Medicare reports that approximately 7% of all power wheelchairs and 6% of all manual wheelchairs funded are categorized as Complex Rehab.
As a company, choosing to focus on this small niche allows us to dedicate all our resources on being experts within this field.
