United Spinal Association and the Permobil Foundation offer United Spinal Association members the opportunity to apply for a “Roll Forward” grant of either a Smart Drive or Active-Height seat elevator on a new Permobil Wheelchair order.
“We’re thankful for the support of Permobil Foundation to empower our members to attain greater independence. Their partnership has helped us expand our mission to improve the quality of life for all people with spinal cord injury and disease,” says James Weisman, president and CEO of United Spinal, in a media release.
Awards are limited and will be given to United Spinal Association members based on financial need.
Grant applications can be received from United Spinal and once approved by United Spinal will be submitted to the Permobil Foundation. The application must be approved prior to ordering the new Permobil wheelchair. If approved, the applicant will be notified, and the wheelchair quote will be revised to reflect the donation.
The revised quote will be sent to the provider/dealer of the wheelchair. Donation credit cannot be issued if the chair is ordered prior to approval, the release explains.
