National Seating & Mobility (NSM) has launched a magazine written especially for people who use wheelchairs.
Let’s Get Moving’s premiere edition is being distributed through the more than 180 NSM offices in the United States and Canada. In a news announcement, NSM said the magazine will focus on “celebrating independence and elevating important topics that impact those using mobility equipment.”
Let’s Get Moving will feature the personal stories of NSM clients, along with stories about travel and recreation, advocacy, and the news and trends impacting people who use mobility and accessibility equipment.
“Let’s Get Moving is a product of our company’s commitment to our clients,” said Bill Mixon, CEO of NSM. “We want this magazine to be a celebration of our clients’ vibrant lives and a way we can build and deepen our relationship with them. Our customers are at the core of everything we do, and this magazine is no different.”
The premiere issue features a cover story on Sean Simonson, a firefighter and an avid cyclist who sustained a spinal cord injury in 2006 while training on his bike. Less than a year after the accident, Simonson completed rehab and returned to the Milpitas (Calif.) Fire Department as its Manager of the Office of Emergency Services, and he has continued to train for cycling events and triathlons.
While consumers and caregivers are the new magazine’s core audience, NSM also expects readership to include clinical/healthcare providers, as well as NSM’s expansive team of ATPs and accessibility suppliers.
Stephanie Buckley, NSM’s VP of Marketing, said, “In the debut issue and every issue that follows, we want to delve into stories and topics that engage and empower our clients. We want to keep our clients up to date on the latest information about mobility and accessibility, while also sharing their stories of living life to the fullest.”
