BAC physical therapist, Jen Raheb, shares why she loves assisting families through their adaptive equipment journey:


"One of my favorite things to do as a physical therapist is to help patients and families with adaptive equipment.  I love the entire process. Everything from educating families on different types of equipment, to completing trials, to hearing about how happy they are when they finally receive their new equipment at home.  I also find it very rewarding to help patients obtain wheelchairs to improve their independence and access to their environment." 

-Jen Raheb, PT, DPT, PCS
