What To Do with Your Old Wheelchair: Recycling Programs for ...
Some enterprising individuals have developed programs to save old and beat-up wheelchairs and turn them into lifesavers for those who are un- or under insured. According to the Congressional Budget Office, more than 45 million Americans are currently without health insurance, and large percentage of this group has a disability. To a person with a disability, insured or not, a mobility device is often crucial.

Even if they qualify for assistance, the equipment can often take months to be ... market research, surveys and trends

After retiring a few years ago, Mr. B led a vigorous independent life until he experienced a major stroke.

He has asked for approval for a power wheelchair, but the contractor—citing Medicare rules—insists on additional documentation that the more expensive equipment is required.
