FRESNO, Calif. – Sunrise Medical has announced the first recipients of its Propel Donation Program, according to a press release. Suheil Aghabi received a power wheelchair from Numotion; and Wallace Choy received a folding manual wheelchair from National Seating & Mobility. The program provides assistance to end users who may not have access to complex rehab products and technology. Each fiscal quarter, the donation committee has an application review process, selecting one or more individuals to receive donations. “Once recipients have been selected, their local supplier and Assistive Technology Provider (ATP) assist with custom configuring the product that the ATP and recipient decide will best complement and enhance the lifestyle of that individual,” stated Kristyn Campbell, marketing manager at Sunrise Medical.
