ICS pioneered the provision of comprehensive wheelchair services for low-income New Yorkers with disabilities. Today we maintain a close relationship with On a Roll, a premier provider of specialized mobility assessments conducted by expert occupational and physical therapists.
To enhance our members’ independence, ICS also offers regular workshops at our Bronx and Brooklyn centers where they can learn from On a Roll’s technicians how to perform preventive maintenance and light repairs on their wheelchairs.
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 physical condition, function and where the 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 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).
