Los Angeles, CA – March 17, 2016 – Numotion, the leading provider of Complex Rehab Technology (CRT) for people with disabilities, will be featured on Worldwide Business with kathy ireland. During the exclusive story, Kathy Ireland interviewed CEO Mike Swinford.
Mr. Swinford commented on the major challenges associated with Complex Rehab Technology. He said, “The biggest challenge is access. Today there are roughly one million people in the United States who have a need for complex wheelchairs. That number is about 20 million globally. Typical diagnoses requiring CRT include cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy, multiple sclerosis, traumatic brain injury and spinal cord injury. Complex Rehab Technology in developing countries is virtually nonexistent. In the developed world, the issue is access. A lot of people view a wheelchair as a wheelchair and the way we individually configure and customize this medically necessary technology for people’s independence and mobility is not always reimbursed at the levels that allow access for everyone in the U.S.”
He continued by speaking about what Numotion is doing to address these challenges. “We have a strong national footprint with local focus in 120+ locations and 2,500 professionals across the country. We have over 1,000 technical experts, more than 1,000 insurance claim management professionals, and over 2,000 health plans under contract so we can provide the best and most medically appropriate CRT products and services to our customers. We also partner with rehabilitation hospitals to produce analytics that show how CRT lowers long-term health care costs. From an advocacy standpoint, we work with legislators and regulatory agencies like CMS to protect CRT access, along with donating millions of dollars and in-kind services to charities such as MDA and ALSA.”
Worldwide Business with kathy ireland Vice President of Programming, JL Haber added, “Numotion is doing something great for people with disabilities. They provide ways for people to get the Complex Rehab Technology they need to improve their quality of life. This is a great company doing great things.”
