For the 6th year, Team Gleason and the Permobil Foundation are continuing their long-term strategic partnership to provide wheelchair products and seat elevation systems, as well as the sponsorship of the Gleason Gras, so families with ALS can continue productive and meaningful lives.

“Our goal is to ensure that every person has the right to mobility. Through impactful partnerships, such as this key one with Team Gleason, we can better support those needing assistance with their complex rehab technologies,” said Ashley Davis, Executive Director of the Permobil Foundation. “We were the first in the industry to partner with Team Gleason on wheelchair parts, and Permobil take this a step further by also fast-tracking orders through production to ensure each ALS patient gets the wheelchair they need in a timely manner. People living with ALS are at the heart of this exciting collaboration, and our partnership is stronger than ever before.”

“Team Gleason is dedicated to ensuring access to empowering tools like seat elevation for the ALS community,” said Blair Casey, Team Gleason’s Executive Director. “We value our ongoing and generous partnership with the Permobil Foundation and their incredible team to help make this possible.”

“The chair has meant freedom!! I’m finally able to get outside and move around comfortably on my own. I spend most of my time now in the chair, and with the tilt and recline features, I no longer have the back pain or pressure sores that sitting in my prior non-rehab chair had caused. The elevator has allowed me to reach for things I would otherwise have to bother my family for, not to mention being able to interact with people at eye level rather than have to twist and crane my neck. It also makes it easier for my family to help me out of the chair. And working with Team Gleason has been a pleasure; quick and easy!”
