Today, there are about 2.7 million wheelchair users in the United States. Unfortunately, many of these individuals have limited transportation options. To address this, more transportation service providers are offering NEMT services. Non-emergency medical transportation includes wheelchair transportation services to take individuals who use wheelchairs to and from their medical appointments, including non-medical events.
In today’s blog, we will discuss the reasons to use a wheelchair transport service:
- Customized, well-maintained vehicles
NEMT providers in Mount Prospect, Illinois use vehicles that are designed to accommodate wheelchairs. These vehicles are well-maintained and are fitted with wheelchair seating systems to offer adequate restraint while traveling. These vehicles are also wheelchair-accessible and provide enough legroom to ensure comfort.
- Door-to-door services
NEMT services can save passengers the hassle of getting off their lawn or home by providing door-to-door services. This service also includes transporting the passenger right from their doorstep to the doorstep of their destination. This increases convenience and increases access to care.
- Safety and care
To ensure the wellbeing of their passengers, many NEMT providers dutifully pay attention to their clients to and from medical appointments. This may include offering help when needed and paying attention to clients who might have other medical challenges.
