Tuesday, June 4, 2019

NEW YORK – Members of the United Spinal Association now have the opportunity to apply for a Roll Forward Grant for a SmartDrive or active-height seat elevator on a new Permobil wheelchair thanks to a new partnership between the two organizations. “We’re thankful for the support of Permobil Foundation to empower our members to attain greater independence,” said James Weisman, president and CEO of United Spinal. “Their partnership has helped us expand our mission to improve the quality of life for all people with spinal cord injury and disease.” Grants are limited and will be given based on financial need. Since its launch in March 2017, Permobil Foundation has supported more than 350 individuals and 250 nonprofit organizations.
