Our expertly trained Mobility Technicians work on-site at your facility, providing comprehensive classroom, hands-on, and associated Continuing Education (CE) accredited training to your team. Mobility Technicians are available on a scheduled or emergency basis providing continuous rounding on the units, as well as in-unit and bedside training.
