United Spinal to Launch UsersFirst Mobility Map:
On-line Tool for Wheelchair Consumers


United Spinal Association’s UsersFirst program will launch Mobility Map, the only web-based tool of its kind to help consumers navigate the often confusing and complicated process of purchasing the proper wheelchair and mobility equipment.

The Mobility Map will be launched during a free, interactive webinar for wheelchair consumers sponsored by UsersFirst on Wednesday, February 29th, 2PM -3:15 EST

The easy-to-read map will run timely information about specific policies and legislative issues, as well as provide a forum to take action. It will also feature feedback opportunities on each page so that content can continue to meet the needs of the user.

“The UsersFirst program brings together the voices of consumers, clinicians and wheelchair suppliers while focusing on the empowerment of the consumer,” said UsersFirst executive director Ann Eubank.

“The Mobility Map will play a big role in empowering the consumer because it guides and educates them through the entire service delivery process of seating and wheeled mobility--so that they can take charge in choosing the best equipment to meet their needs,” she added.

For more information on how to use Mobility Map, please register for the free webinar. If you cannot attend, a recording of the webinar will be available at www.spinalcord.org/webinar-archive/.
