Who are we?

Life Wheels On

Life Wheels On is a team of therapists and administrative personnel passionate about helping patients obtain the right equipment and achieve their goals. We believe that when the unexpected happens and mobility adaptations are needed, that life goes on and so Life Wheels On.

 

Life Wheels On began after Dr. Morgan noticed a gap in the service delivery for patients obtaining new mobility devices such as wheelchairs and scooters in the usual home health and hospital system models. She saw that patients’ needs weren’t being fully met and so started Life Wheels On in 2012.

 
Our goal is to simplify the process and to keep the focus on helping patients obtain the best possible outcomes with their equipment. Read more about our team below.”
