Rod SouzaAt Jim's Pharmacy, we know that the great outdoors is not always ADA-compliant! Rod Souza, Assistive Technology Professional (ATP), analyzes the needs of individuals with disabilities, assists in the selection of appropriate equipment to resolve mobility and other deficits, and trains consumers on how to properly use assistive equipment, most often custom manual wheelchairs, power operated vehicles, or power wheelchairs.

The ATP certification recognizes those who have reached an internationally accepted standard of knowledge in assistive technology and who demonstrate a commitment to provide only the highest ethical standards of practice. Achieving certification requires from 1000 to 6000 hours of direct consumer related services in Assistive Technology, depending on level of education.

Whether a standard model 3-wheel scooter or a $20,000 customized power wheelchair is what you need, Rod will work with your health insurance to get you the equipment you need to achieve the highest quality of life.
