Assistive Technology Professionals (ATP) are trained and credentialed by the organization RESNA (Rehabilitation Engineering and Assistive Technology Society of North America). RESNA is the premier institution in the United States that deals with disabilities and rehabilitation techniques. The grouping has government-endorsed guidelines, exams, a code of ethics, and readiness tools. Each RESNA Certified ATP evaluates and ultimately is recognized as an individual that has demonstrated competency in analyzing the needs of consumers with disabilities. They have been trained to proficiently assist, to the best of their ability and under the strictest guidelines, people with disabilities, including mobility issues. ATPs have undergone rigorous training, exams, and experience requirements and have demonstrated the ability to select appropriately assistive technology to help people with disabilities.
Atlantic Healthcare Products has certified ATP experts on staff. Our ATP’s consultation and product selection are based on RESNA guidelines, top-tier medical equipment technology, and quality materials. Our wheelchairs not only fulfill daily needs but provide individuals in South Florida with the best level of comfort possible.
Each case is different, each disability a dimension unto itself; it is crucial to understand that there is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all wheelchair. In Palm Beach County, Atlantic Healthcare Products can provide some of the most customizable, efficient, and durable wheelchairs.
One-on-one seating & positioning customization with an ATP is available. Chat LIVE, or click on the button to schedule an appointment.
Medicare and significant healthcare insurance insurances require that an ATP professional be involved in selecting and evolving all rehab equipment types, including wheelchairs. Your medical insurance to approve any claim for a Group 3 or Group 4 Complex Wheelchair requires it first to be reviewed by an ATP professional.
You will benefit from an ATP seating evaluation if you live with Parkinson's disease, ALS, MS, Post Polio, paralysis, hemi-paralysis, or any other limitation that prevents you from functionally weight shifting.
Our ATPs will partner with Medicare, Workers Compensation, and Veterans Administration to provide the necessary evaluation documentation, to ensure our billing team and your physician agrees with the solutions. They will assist you with every step and help the process get through the red tape. From the initial evaluation to the delivery of your complex manual wheelchairs, our ATP personnel will be there to ensure your specific needs are met. They will be available for all your questions during the approval process, individualized fitting on equipment delivery, and follow-up regarding performance.
According to the CDC, South Florida’s rate for adults with severe mobility issues is higher than that of the United States. Over 14.3% of people living in Florida have serious problems walking or climbing stairs. That’s almost 2% more than the national average. Those numbers are critical and are essential in certain spots in Florida, like Palm Beach County, to understand what a certified ATP and certified ATP products are and where to get them.
