Veteran Rehab Specialist, Anne Kieschnik, Joins Fast-Growing Alliance Seating & Mobility In Texas
Date:1/14/2009

Kieschnik Brings 29 Years of Experience with Complex Rehab Market

HOUSTON, Jan. 14 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Anne Kieschnik, a complex rehab specialist with almost 30 years of experience, has joined Alliance Seating & Mobility (ASM), one of the nation's fastest growing accredited complex rehab companies. Kieschnik is an Assistive Technology Professional (ATP) and Certified Rehabilitation Technology Supplier (CRTS) in Houston, Texas, for ASM (www.alliance-seating.com) and is responsible for sales and service of rehabilitation equipment and commercially available assistive technology products/devices for consumers with disabilities.

"I love custom molding seating systems for individuals with multiple orthopedic complications," said Kieschnik. "It is wonderful knowing that as a result of an appropriately fitted system, the length of time they are able to stay out of bed increases and the degree of their discomfort decreases. I also love working with the pediatric population as we all learn and grow up together."

Kieschnik has been a RESNA-certified ATP for almost 10 years. She is a member of the National Registry of Rehabilitation Technology Suppliers (NRRTS) and served on the NRRTS Board of Directors for nine years. She has also served as the Patient Service Coordinator for the Houston Muscular Dystrophy Association and a training Ambassador for the Med Group. Kieschnik has presented to several industry groups including the Texas Technology Access Project Assistive Technology Conference, American Congress of Rehabilitation Medicine, Texas Association of Orthotics and Prosthetists State Meeting, and Texas Woman's University School of Occupational Therapy undergraduate- and graduate-level classes.

Previously, she co-owned and operated Houston-based Seating Profiles, a company that provides specialty equipment to meet the seating, positioning, and mobility needs of the physically challenged. Seating Profiles was established in August 1991 by a small group of rehabilitation professionals, including Anne and her husband Ron Kieschnik. Their mission was to enhance the function, posture, comfort and overall quality of life of the physically challenged through the effective application of assistive technology. ASM acquired Seating Profiles in late August.

"Anne brings 29 years of solid experience to our team, including time operating a rehab business. We are essentially joining forces with the well-known, well-respected company Seating Profiles, allowing us to expand our reach and provide the best possible rehab services to the Houston area," said Scott Higley, ASM's Vice President of Business Development. "Our team is growing stronger every day, ensuring that we provide the best products and services possible to our complex rehab patients."

Established in November 2007, ASM has grown from three locations to more than 20 in the past year. ASM 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.
