Fisher Brings 10 Years of Personal Experience with Complex Rehab Needs

CHARLOTTE, N.C., March 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Michael Fisher, a complex rehab specialist, has joined Alliance Seating & Mobility (ASM), one of the nation's fastest growing accredited complex rehab companies. Fisher is an Assistive Technology Professional (ATP) in Charlotte, N.C., for ASM (www.alliance-seating.com) and provides power mobility solutions for pediatrics and adults with severe physical disabilities related to paralysis, cerebral palsy, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, Multiple Sclerosis, Muscular Dystrophy and other conditions. He has 10 years of personal experience with complex rehab -- his wife is a paraplegic.

"The best thing about my job is helping the people I serve gain freedom and independence with regard to their mobility," Fisher said. "My clients feel relaxed around me because of my personal experience in having the person I love the most as a paraplegic and in a complex rehab power wheelchair.

Fisher holds the ATP certification through Rehabilitation Engineering and Assistive Technology Society of North America (RESNA).

He became interested in complex rehab when his wife of 38 years, Terry, was fitted for a new complex rehab chair. In March 2006, an ATP delivered her chair to their home.
