ICS pioneered the provision of comprehensive wheelchair services for low-income New Yorkers with disabilities. Today the ICS On a Roll comprehensive wheelchair evaluation program is a premier provider of specialized mobility assessments conducted by expert occupational and physical therapists.
Too many people have poorly fitting wheelchairs that limit their mobility and undermine their health by causing muscle strain, pressure injuries, spasms, nerve damage, or other injuries.
An On A Roll wheelchair or mobility device:
- Starts with a thorough evaluation
- Considers each person’s physical condition, their functional ability and where their device will be used
- Fits properly to prevent pressure wounds
- Is tailored to meet the needs of each individual
In addition to comprehensive clinical evaluations, On a Roll does home assessments to ensure that the appropriate chair will fit through the doors, hallways and elevators of the user’s home.
On A Roll’s expert wheelchair and complex rehab equipment services are covered by Medicaid, original Medicare Part B, Empire (Blue Cross/Blue Shield), United Healthcare, and all VNS insurance plans.

On a Roll was developed and is led by Jean Minkel, an internationally recognized expert on seating and mobility who has received numerous prestigious awards, including the Fellow Award from RESNA (the Rehabilitation Engineering and Assistive Technology Society of North America).
To enhance our members’ independence, ICS also offers roll in repair workshops at our Bronx and Brooklyn wheelchair centers.
