Alliance Seating & Mobility stands tall

SALISBURY, N.C. – Alliance Seating & Mobility on Oct. 28 delivered a power wheelchair with stand-up capabilities to a Salisbury, N.C., man who was paralyzed from the waist down in a vehicle accident one year ago. Tim Elrod, who has been using a manual wheelchair, wanted to be able to work in his workshop, prepare dinner and, when the time came, walk his daughter down the aisle. The community raised the funds needed to purchase the LEVO Combi standing wheelchair and Sunrise Medical Jay J2 Deep Contour seat cushion. Alliance Seating, a division of The Scooter Store; LEVOUSA; MSL Associates, a LEVOUSA distributor; and Sunrise Medical provided “additional gifts,” according to a release.
