The Original PushTracker™

The original PushTracker was the first of its kind, introducing Bluetooth technology and tap gestures to the world as a way of controlling the device. Tap gestures allow you to control the SmartDrive without having to push the wheel to start and SwitchControl can still be used in combination. The original PushTracker is great for those who want or need a simpler wearable choice to control their SmartDrive. Fine tune your performance and keep everything up to date using the new PushTracker App.

 

  • A simple wearable with smaller size and less technology

  • The original PushTracker can also be paired with SwitchControl, including the ability to program the speeds and modes.

  • Control all your settings and keep your system up to date using our new PushTracker app.

All about you.

We see a wheelchair the same way you do. As an extension of you. Not just of your body. But of your personality. Why? Because many of our employees are also wheelchair users. They depend on our chairs as much as you do. And they’ve learned through experience how to use design, technology and creativity to improve lives.

PUSHTRACKER SIZES

Measure your wrist circumference and reference the ranges below for the PushTracker size that fits you best:

Small: 4-1/2″ / 114 mm to 6″ / 152 mm

Medium: 6″ / 152 mm to 7-1/4″ / 184 mm

Large: 7-1/4″ / 184 mm to 9″ / 229 mm

The band on the PushTracker is designed for most users. But if you have difficulty securing, it doesn’t fit quite right, or you wish to have one of a different color / material / pattern, the band can be easily replaced with essentially any 0.7″ (18 mm) wide off-the-shelf watch band of your choosing.

Exploring The PushTracker E2 with Aaron Baker

Four years ago my friend let me demo her SmartDrive & PushTracker, and within 10 minutes of using it, I knew it would change my life. Fast forward to today, and I have explored over 40 cities in the United States, discovered 3 countries, and traveled independently for business all because of the original Smart Drive and Pushtracker.
That is why when I discovered the new Pushtracker E2 I was a bit skeptical of changing a good thing. To be honest I am partial to the original MX2+ Pushtracker because it has literally changed my life. My thought was, if it’s not broken, why fix it?

Clinical Benefits & Funding Issues of Titanium Upgrade to Manual Wheelchairs

Funding for titanium upgrades to manual wheelchairs has become increasingly difficult over the last several of years. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) reports when they created the K0005 (ultralightweight manual wheelchair) code back in the early 1990’s they took the added expense for special materials, such as titanium or carbon fiber, into consideration when they developed the initial K0005 allowable. Based on Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) inquiries we do not believe this to be the case which is why we continue to pursue policy changes through CMS and Congress. Providing titanium upgrades wasn’t an issue until this 20+ year old information surfaced for the first time a few years back. Over time the reimbursement rates have been adjusted according to the annual Consumer Pricing Index (CPI) updates but that isn’t enough to cover the added cost of titanium.

Justifying a Power Assist Device

For more information about power assist devices check out our 4-part series here:Part 1,Part 2, Part 3, and Part 4.

Anytime there is a need for complex rehab technology, it’s important to understand the criteria for reimbursement and how to justify it appropriately. We looked recently at the coverage criteria for power assist devices and this week we will look in more detail at the justification piece. This is important because once you’ve identified that a client meets the criteria for the device, you need to know how to document to get it covered.
