Tuesday, July 25, 2017

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – National Seating & Mobility will be the exclusive national distributor for WHILL’s Model M power wheelchair, the companies announced July 24. NSM’s national distribution channel and expert clinical field team “vastly increase” the Model M’s service area in the complex rehab and access industries, according to a press release. “We’re excited to have NSM’s clinical experts providing product evaluations on the Model M, ensuring the chair fits and meets the versatile needs of their clients,” said WHILL CEO Satoshi Sugie in the release. The Model M will be available through NSM and AccessNSM branches nationwide. WHILL received clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for the Model M last year, paving the way for doctors to prescribe the wheelchair as a medical device. WHILL also offers the Model A for cash sale. Model M keeps the four-wheel drive, patented all-direction wheels and sleek design of the Model A, but also offers customizable features like arm and back supports, and ankle huggers.
