Briefly: R-TRAK Is Fully Code Verified; a Pushchair Project Is Announced
R-TRAK Is Fully Code Verified by PDAC
When our last eMobility edition published Sept. 21, Quantum Rehab’s new rear-wheel-drive R-TRAK was awaiting PDAC verification for some of its HCPCS codes. But the Quantum team has confirmed that those verifications came through, so the R-TRAK can now be configured as a standard K0848/K0849; a single-power K0856/K0857; or a multiple-power K0861.
Designability & JMDA to Partner on Pushchair Project for Parents
JMDA, which describes itself as an award-winning British product design consultancy, is partnering with Designability on the assistive technology organization’s Pushchair for Wheelchair Users project.
In a July 11 announcement, Designability said it “will harness JMDA’s 30 years’ experience in the nursery industry to help bring independence to disabled parents with children.”
The project is a pushchair — what Americans would commonly call a stroller — that attaches to a self-propelled manual wheelchair so manual wheelchair users can independently take their young children out into the community.
Designability is also known for its Wizzybug, a pediatric powered mobility device for young children.
