Getting Started

We are here to help!

We understand what a big decision a wheelchair can be. Our team of experts is here to listen and help you get the right equipment the first time.

 

While a therapy assessment is required by most insurances to obtain a manual wheelchair, power wheelchair, or scooter, our team goes beyond insurance requirements to focus on you and your unique goals. We’ll follow these steps to get you what you need:

Get Your Perscription

First, your physician will need to write a prescription for “PT/OT Evaluate and Treat for wheelchair/assistive technology assessment.” Please have their office fax it to Life Wheels On at
719-398-0794.

Choose Your Supplier

You will choose a supplier, the company that orders the wheelchair, if you have not done so already. A representative from the company (ATP) will work with you and your Life Wheels On therapist to understand your needs.

Find Your Perfect Match

Life Wheels On will work with you, your supplier and your physician to obtain the correct equipment and documentation for your insurance company. Our goal is to find the best match for you.

Your Training, Care, and Support

Your therapist will see you after the equipment is delivered to make it meets your mobility goals, and we can train you on the device as needed. Our flexible scheduling options are designed to meet your unique needs.

Our Patient

Outcomes

After working with Life Wheels On, patients noted significant improvements in their ability to get around their homes and communities, along with greater comfort and ease with their devices.

 

The Patient Specific Functional Scale (PSFS) is used to assess our patient’s mobility in the home, in the community, and other features of clinical importance. Greater than or equal to 2 points is the minimal detectable change (MDC) for the PSFS. Our results for both in home and community mobility exceed the 2 point MDC.
