Team Gleason, Permobil Foundation partner for ALS

NEW ORLEANS – Team Gleason has partnered with the Permobil Foundation for the fifth year in a row to provide seat elevators to individuals living with ALS.  

The partnership includes donated seat elevators on new chair orders for 700 people living with ALS.   

“Our goal is to ensure that every person has the right to mobility, and through impactful partnerships with nonprofits, such as Team Gleason, and assisting individuals who are denied by insurance, we can better fulfill a life of independence for our customers needing assistance with complex rehab technologies,” said Ashley Davis, executive director of the Permobil Foundation. “Additionally, for ALS, we take this a step further by fast tracking orders through production to ensure each ALS patient gets the chair they need in a timely manner.” 

In addition to providing seat elevators, the Permobil Foundation will also sponsor a Team Gleason Adventure, a program that empowers individuals living with ALS and creates life-changing memories for their families. 

Seat elevation provides a level of normalcy for individuals living with ALS, said Blair Casey, executive director of Team Gleason. 

"Our continued partnership with the Permobil Foundation allows for more people with ALS to have the ability to interact with their environment and decrease caregiver burden," he said. “This generous gift from the Permobil Foundation allows us to make a much greater impact."
