Scott Grant ATP

Professional Experience

Professionally, I work for a regional medical equipment company in as a Rehab Technology Supplier. This is a job many people don’t know even exists! But it means that I work with seniors and the disabled to provide specialty wheelchairs, mobility products and technical solutions so that they can be more independent in their daily lives. Another part of my position is recommending bath safety solutions and other home safety products.

To carry out these duties, I am a RESNA-certified Assistive Technology Professional (ATP). This is a highly specialized certification that allows me to provide power and custom manual wheelchairs for patients with mobility problems and severe disabilities such as cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis, and ALS. Achieving this certification takes years of education and hands-on training working with seniors and the disabled. You can verify my credentials here

I also am a Certified Rehab Technology Supplier (CRTS®). This special designation is held by a select group of wheelchair providers who specialize in complex patients and solutions. You can verify this credential here

As a member of both of these organizations, I am required to follow a strict Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice requirements.

Working Daily with Seniors and the Elderly

Much of my time in this position is spent with seniors and elderly who are facing their decline in mobility for the first time. While working with these patients, I see firsthand the struggles they have when learning to take care of themselves and be as independent as possible.

Mobility Aid Experience

My goal is always to help my patient remain as independent as possible. I work hand in hand with physical and occupational therapists to achieve this goal.

Much of my day is spent working with mobility products including canes, walkers, rollators, scooters, and manual and power wheelchairs. Regaining mobility is an important step for seniors in achieving independent living again and caring for themselves. 

Many doctors and therapists in my area rely on me to help their patients choose the best mobility device for their situation. Once a choice is made and provided, I train their patients how to properly – and safely – use the equipment prescribed. Making adjustments and “tweaks” to their mobility equipment is another daily task for me.

Safety Equipment

My training allows me to assist with more than their mobility. I also look at their safety in the bathroom for safer bathing and toileting. Products like bath handrails, bath benches, shower seats and toilet safety rails are common recommendations for me. Safety in the kitchen while cooking and in the bedroom while dressing and sleeping are also commonly addressed. 

Unfortunately, many of the products that would make the biggest impact on a senior’s safety and independence are not covered by their insurance. I learned that many didn’t know where to get the tools they need. So, I decided to bring my research and suggestions to the internet in the form of this website.

My Mission for this Site

My mission for this site is to help seniors and their caregivers make smart decisions about their care. One way I will do this is by sharing my education and hands-on experience working with seniors, the elderly, and the disabled.

Another way I want to help is to bring you unbiased product reviews on aids that increase independence for seniors and the elderly. Few people have experience with these products. Unfortunately, when the time comes, most people make decisions without all the facts. I want to change that.

These reviews and recommendations are based on my daily experience working with the elderly, seniors, and their caregivers and families. I don’t just do a bunch of research and write an article. I have hands-on, real-life experience with most of the products that I recommend. I have touched them, assembled them, used them, and instructed patients on how to use them.

Personal Information

Yes, I am a real person. I am not some persona made up for the internet or a company with multiple employees. I’m a one-man show!

Personally, I am a single father to four beautiful daughters and Paw-paw to three awesome grandkids. When I’m not working, I enjoy outdoor activities like running, hiking, and kayaking. I also like to be on a sandy beach as much as possible!

Please contact me if you have specific questions or I can help further!
