Helpful Mobility and Disability Links
We are designing and building links to businesses, professionals and communities sensitive to the needs of those with disabilities.
Visit this section frequently, as we add and update the page for individuals seeking a handicap accessible vehicle, wheelchair van conversion, or mobility equipment.

Every day our Mobility Vehicle Consultants and clients come across useful information, tools, tips and web information we think you could use. Our goal is to provide you with pertinent and current links that will help educate you to the world of living with a disability, and improve your opportunity to living life to its fullest.
Funding Options for Adaptive Driving Equipment: The Engaging Mobility Podcast
Hosted by Dr. Terri Cassidy and Susie Touchinsky, this podcast focuses exclusively on promoting community engagement through healthy transportation decisions. It’s a trusted resource for occupational therapy practitioners and other health professionals working with the mobility challenged. Though the focus is generally around our aging population, many of their topics can be relatable to anyone facing mobility challenges.
In this episode, Performance Coach Cassy Churchill from the Dealer Development Department of Braunability discusses her role in the mobility industry. She answers some of the most poignant questions a mobility neophyte may have, like what a mobility dealership is, what products and services they provide, and how the leading American manufacturer of wheelchair accessible vans, wheelchair lifts, and mobility seating services those dealerships and their customers.
She also provides ample information on Braunability financing and funding assistance. As you will learn, the investment in many of these products can come at a premium. Their grant and funding resource, which is laid out state by state and includes government and private options, is an industry standard and can help anyone identify applicable grants and programs they may be eligible for. And in addition to financial assistance, Braunability has a new leasing program, as well as Vehicle financing and mobility product financing available through their partner Ally lending.
