Salt Lake City, UT, January 05, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- Orbit Medical gives thanks to Shoprider Mobility Products for continuously manufacturing new innovative power wheelchairs while maintaining quality. The two most popular Shoprider wheelchairs that Orbit Medical sells are the Jimmie and the 6Runner 14” HD.
The Jimmie with its brilliant design is light weight, portable, and user-friendly. Among other things the Jimmie is an engineering marvel, the wheelchair is travel friendly and effortlessly disassembles for transport. The Jimmie is SADMERC approved as HCPCS code K0821, which is specifically for portable power wheelchair options. Orbit Medical distributes this product as its product of choice within the K0821 code due to all the benefits aforementioned along with the many patients’ absolute satisfaction with the product.
The 6Runner 14” HD combines the stability of a rear driven power chair with the maneuverability of a mid wheel driven chair. It represents the best features available in power wheelchair technology. This 450 pound weight capacity HD model was SADMERC approved for the K0825 code, which contains power wheelchairs with weight capacities between 300-450 pounds. Orbit Medical distributes this model because it is a high quality mid-wheel drive option for anyone between 300-450 pounds. Other manufacturers’ HD mid-wheel options either are cost prohibitive with current insurance reimbursement levels or only have a 350 or 400 pound weight capacity.
Since 1988 Shoprider has been innovating the power wheelchair industry with quality products but, “Orbit Medical adds quality too,” according to Shoprider National Accounts Director Sandy Phillips, “Orbit Medical’s trained insurance specialist’s help patients file insurance claims and based on need and intended use help select the perfect chair.” It is relationships like this that allow both companies to be leaders in their respected industries.
