For the Western New York area where your worth Tom -- Tommy is the owner of main mobility which is on on main street. In Clarence you've heard of -- mobility all the time and now we have tolerance the owner. Talking about anyone who may have issues with mobility welcome to the show for -- I'm doing. Have good good and it's good to have you here is gonna ask you something and you know our audience may be. Knowing you from your ask Tom you have -- just ask term. Part on your website I mean do people go on the web site if they have issues about mobility unit did they ask you quite. You do we're finding that the Internet has been an amazing tool specially for our clients with physical challenges because they have a hard time getting out so the so much. You can find out and learn about products now we do encourage you to go on our website may mobility -- cam and to see. Some of the many products that are available to me -- always talk about physical challenges. What were we talking about specifically. Point this a real good question because. I'd like to say. Anybody. You know from infant and a we -- people of -- 106 -- -- -- that runs a full gamut but we'd like to tell you was. If there's something out there that is causing you to have a hard time to do something if we talk some very simple things -- because most of what I do involves vehicles. So getting in and out of your vehicle's first thing you have to do. So are you in a wheelchair and scooter are using a walker he's keen how do you easily transfer into that seat. Some people have a hard time getting innings in getting her legs up and over into the car. So we have a product. For replacement seat that'll actually rotate turn come out of the vehicle. You sit down and it it'll lift you up. -- uranium and turn your -- behind driver per passenger position. -- -- I would think that this would be getting every do we we we call the trucks or -- these like mobility. Trucks -- to a two were -- well. I'm again that's that's another broad area we we can pretty much modify any vehicle. Now depending on what we're doing for cutting them lowering floors to make a wheelchair accessible. There's going to be some limitations. Were using four wheel drive vehicles for example like the -- to Siena the Honda Odyssey was a dodge Chrysler and many. So you can actually take these vehicles can people buy them awful lot for me words of something you customize we can do that we have. And all times maybe. 81012. Fully converted vehicles sitting near ready to go. We can convert your existing vehicle depending benefits. Were icy road really we wanna take 78 year old vehicle start modifying it. If it it's probably less than three years old. We would absolutely recommend bringing that and hadn't take a look at pictures structurally sound underneath and it can be customized to. -- the floor. So is it -- is a lot of. Clientele. A few words that mean mobility. Of an elderly nature aware there again they can't get in and out of if you call and obviously vehicles are the transportation and freedom. Is very important people yes and having challenges. That they can't get around correct. Exactly so when he said earlier. From infant. A hundred years all of us. We we have many. Families -- young children have disabilities. So we start there was start the young and move. Kind of progressively up a -- here we start with with the young young children. Oftentimes. Even though they may be an infant there in something -- -- to Iraq. A modified baby strollers it's a wheelchair configuration. It'll have a tilt to rise to it -- to it. And typically it's not may be conducive or easy to take their child in and out of that particular chair so they're stripped and they're needed to stay in there. So how do you take that you can't put it in the station wagon. Or -- on modified. Tissue -- many. So we work with converters that can take that back into the vehicle cut out lord so you have a twelve or fourteen inch drop. And you know touch a button -- actual open operating apple come out and you can rule that stroller we Richard right into the vehicle. We have special title systems have secure that -- to the floor of her crash tested certified. Devices that hold in place. Still -- shoulder and lap belt just like any other passenger in the vehicle would be using and when you go so could be as simple as. Rolling secure manner and your after the movies after the -- from all lots of the grocery store your net struggling taking the child out. Position them in place and then trying to find a place to place this large school. Wheelchair or worse. Stroller there is such a need for regaining your independence there's such a need for mobility meaning is Annika again you know as as we age. -- gets tougher and tougher to get in some place to get around to move around. You know an hour depending are our kids and stuff like that to help us get around. On main mobility is such a special place you've helped so many people regain their independence. And I can't stress enough to the WB -- audience. If if you know you need to see for yourself I -- mean mobility can do. You I mean we knew walking your your our headquarters on mainstream Clarence. It's great you see all these fans and all these vehicles that you didn't know old. Existed for people with disabilities. I mean it's just it's like. It's like. These things really exist. And they're available in -- mobility you can talk to an expert. All he had to do was call them 75968117596811. Ask for time ask for anybody but mention the buffalo means business show mentioned your herded on WB yen and you know vocal take very very good -- that's all people have to do right is -- -- what happens from that phone call what's the process. Although we do is we always like to meet the individual because. Conditions are different vehicles are different every situation is unique. And what would work for you write me network for the next person that comes Isidore. We have kind of a model where it's been my philosophy it if something doesn't work. Exactly that we needed to work it doesn't have value. And we will talk today about. A different ways of funding programs that do exist here in New York State that will help many of our individuals. Pay for. All of these type of modifications but. Before we even do that what we'd like to know was. What economically is the thing that's gonna work best for you and then we figure out a way of how we can -- you find it for. So when -- meet that individual I need to assess. For example and it's we have side loading and reloading. Vehicles. If you're single car garage. Where you had a single car drive we've got bushes on the side it may be very difficult to unload from the side of your vehicle. There's a situation where. Writing straight right into the back of the vehicle 123 years and years gone in your annually. Simple now if somebody's a driver who wanted to drive that particular vehicle. Can't necessarily do with the reentry because that the floor that we -- is can only go up as far as the driver finished Gypsy. And when -- say we cut the floor systems out here's the reason why we do it. An average height of an individual sitting in a wheelchair is about 52 inches. He take any stacked. Mean the evening and your door opening is about 44 inches. So not only would you can we have to do the Wimbledon try to get into the vehicle if if you didn't have that the lord. Once you're in there you're making another four inches above your head CF 48 inches you couldn't sit in your wheelchair. In an on modified vehicle and -- -- some unique circumstances -- again very low profile wheelchairs which rarely would see. So I'm going by the averages take 52 was it magic number one we can cut lowered their vehicle we now create. Off a 54 inch door opening and now some of whom are going a little lower than it wouldn't give you up to about a 57. In store opening. You could write me an injury it where a year baseball camp and I didn't pitcher had easily go through that doorway. And be properly secured in the vehicle whether I do side career. We talk about a client wants to drive -- when -- drive there wheelchair we need to had a floor cut modified rate up. Pasture areas so that a top -- political firewall that's all cut out. You ride -- and we have a special locked down device that would secure -- wheelchair. And you're gonna come very generic and we would -- -- Bottom of the steering -- you with a he -- control device. That our preacher break in gas pedal. It's just incredible stuff that's gone and with with regaining your independence. For people it's so important do that you I see people buying. Huge. Expansive. View couples. That they can't get in and out of I see all the time. Like I ACP you don't just in my own personal life I see people trying to get an a vehicle why would they do that -- and that by Simpson that. They can easily get into and that'll give freedom -- By the united talked about this. Often. One of the challenges I face. It is for people to understand. With the mobility industries. Did so it's it's net. Easy to define in and we've got a lot of listeners today depravity can. She you know I'm listen this guy talked -- I need any of these things. You you'd do need to see what we have because you'd be surprised. Howell. We hear products that you probably never even -- thought about it while that'll work for me and I have a little device.

Time you are celebrating first walked in regulations or thirtieth anniversary with -- mobility thirty years I'm busy making them. Packed coffee for the customers and -- and now. We can't hit the with thirty years a lot of times probably since he started -- mobility. You've probably seen the technology. As well it changed quite a bit what's going on with technology. So much. When I started in 1984. That was the word mobility really didn't exist in in the sense of modifying vehicles. I'm. As they begin. My company we were customizing just vehicles percent. And I told you earlier conversations. I built many of the local radio station. Big cruiser busses that their character broadcast buses. And I had and we stepped it -- shop and said the child in a wheelchair. Yeah BC building all these vehicles for everybody could you get my son and again. And glad I was kind of like -- this blaze its first time ever come across something like they did a lot of research for them and there was an gentleman by the name of Ralph brawn and -- -- neck Indiana. Who. Was in a wheelchair himself and started a product called -- -- left. So I for this client I spoke at Ralph pieces large c'mon racially what I do so I drove out to win a Mac. And these gentlemen in his mother's garage was well enough. What's called a wheelchair. You bolt that it into the into the Aegean and it would come out platform come out dropped on the ground and raced there cup. Another reason you needed to do this is. A typical van is about 2620. Inches off the ground. Just to put a piece of plywood or build arena -- something outside the vehicle. Doesn't work because if you think of an angle or pitch you'd be. If you -- eight foot piece of plywood there would be too steep to rule we that your there's -- of yeah torture. And non. Some things that they've seen develop along the way about 25 years ago. United States government enforced it's called the -- Americans for disabilities act. Which was one of the first things he did to tell every business you have to start complying. And how you to comply want it to be your doorways wide enough to accept a wheelchair. You have to have curb cuts to keep it goal anything steeper than what's called an eighty compliant pitch. Which is for every inch up. You have to go at least twelve inches out. So if you think about that and you know you almost via. You 28 -- -- to come out decided years years vehicle if you were to comply with an angle so you need -- lift that would glove and dropped out of the ground. What they've seen changed since that time period is with the onset of the minivan. That didn't exist that many years ago. Their front wheel drive. There's not a lot going on under the vehicle from the driver's seats back so these companies and our modifying them cutting glory -- And we can get their vehicle close enough to the ground that we can now simply -- -- -- -- it comes out you don't need to lift more optimal radiant. So that was kind of one of the big progression as it took place and that's always in the last fifteen years. What what will what do you find is most difficulty when it comes to making a decision about. Regaining mobility it is is it adults seniors is that their their children now or. You know I'm not you know maybe in their fifties or forties or wanna take care of the parents. Who is it that it's making the decisions when it comes senate mobility. It's so important I mean you know and wants to go to Christmas dinner how does he get there -- -- get a mean how are you handling or. I'm gonna say the the influencers and decision makers are typically. 35. To 55. Age group because. You're making decisions for your children. And you're making decisions for your parents. So that's kind of -- you know where I'm looking at we do we have some extremely active. C music come in and believe you me they make your own decisions you know exactly what they want. And it's great and we are there and a candle holder -- into the whole process. We talked earlier and in the first segment. And make it mandatory that one -- to discuss a product was somebody that it works. You'll take a vehicle home you'll test drive it we will take it tears your your home setting this year is gonna work is that fit in your garage. Do you have obstacles in the way of loading and unloading. So American just say yeah here's a vehicle commute check and here's the keys in Europe on your own it it doesn't so this is a very what it would mean mobility does is a very customized. It's a very Christmas situation with people call you yes I -- different from the minute they call -- some of the things we we need to cover. With with a client first and come in here is not just the individual with this specific. Need. But what's the family around it situation like for example our young active -- -- -- 234 kids wanna lose in a wheelchair and get moms get hockey bag in the kids are playing basketball football and get the sneakers. You know willing offered in this vehicle. How do we get around. And how often that it taking trips are -- picking up Graham -- and taken him for rides with them also so. How multi purposely can we designed this vehicle so it fits every need. I've got a young and we now that we have four children the fifth 44. Able -- chilly ones in a wheelchair. Let's say take your durable and when the mountainous and aid and usually the mom and his of the family members. So we we a lot of a lot of people within that vehicle that was warm that we built a full size stand for. And nobody picked up for -- beginning of summer here and took a triple in Utah. That's incredible. The the need is that -- there I mean for your product I can't speak. Much more need that there could be -- mean people need what you have and what you can do for people it's very obvious. I would think that expense comes into play. And we talked about funding programs that are available for people -- may be interested in looking into this a little further. Tell coming -- some of the funding programs available. Can go over some of the costs of the bigger products that we're looking at the vehicles specifically -- -- fully. Customized vehicle that will accept a wheelchair. For transport. And we -- out with the three popular in many educated magic here. The dodge Chrysler minivan and you have to Leodis yen and Honda Odyssey. -- we can look at them just just the cost of the vehicle and again. Does matter where you buy it from. Go to your favorite local dealer. You're gonna get a -- On the low side anywhere from 185. An -- We can start moving up the letters we get hired to these more luxurious toyotas -- It's not -- -- Thirty to 37000. Dollars for just a chance he -- -- to order and so again from almost 2035. Test a range of just the vehicle. Conversions -- one we re entry from a 171000. I'm words up to fully automatic side loading one for for 25000. Dollars. On top of the costs of chassis. We look at it -- we pay for -- -- was working and hit some nice finest programs because a lot of attention now. Many pictures were working with will assist you to put together sixty or 72 month. Payment plan so -- construction. Quite a ways making it extremely affordable -- -- for five dollars a month payments. If we look at funding agencies from infant. To 21. There are state programs that take care of children. So we should have no problem. Having any young child out there have this portion of copper. And it's it's just it's been that way for a long time. It's a great program to be rule list. We have skip the New York we have a -- here we have -- -- -- users I don't completion -- centers these are all. Funding programs that work through their own. The option of throwing agencies. To provide. Funding for their children. From 21 to 55. Access and be formally called us vocational educational services for individuals with disability. This program setup from New York State residents so that if you are gonna go back to school -- go to work. You're 21 to 55. They will pay for the mobility portion -- -- these problems are just described you won't pay for -- and share your courage your responsibility to do he began. But anybody anywhere would -- -- car anyway right in my vehicle and so you're you're responsible for the vehicle. And we can take me 12 or three year old vehicle modified. Again we wanna watch or doing their because we want to be cautious that we don't pick -- 67 year old vehicle in the state. -- -- converted -- and transmission goes it becomes money it needs to spend a lot of money so you wanna start with. The newest we call on the champs but this championships. You can afford it attacked this. So. We would assist you -- we hope you find one. -- -- we we -- regularly to our local which called it Jessica auction. Every Tuesday we go -- there and list of vehicles so somebody if you -- -- said. I'm looking for something -- stay with this price -- I can go to the election Korea could Korea and say. He's got a two year old God's -- Caribbean. A one year old Toyota -- you know and and we can't -- -- about the prices that -- going for. It's not uncommon to might be 2530 of each one of these models -- auction utopia colors convert who wanted to be one redolent. I can seek it out for you or we help before anyone on any of the local. I dealer lots that we work with every game you know all of that the days of the west serves you know every anybody encounter -- work with the everyday. So -- if you have the need for. Regaining independence or freedom our ability. If you have that need. Mean mobility can help but they have to know that she -- you need to you have to contact them and explain the situation to them. And start working to get these things -- 75968117596811. Mainstream Clarence what about programs for people over 55. It gets tough. The only programs for anybody over 55 is for veterans. -- because. And and they get a wonderful program. If if you served in the armed forces. And you have a disability that is a result of something that happened while you were in duty. And do what he's who were current block but for the most part everything you need will be covered he also have a program when she first timeout. They will pay up to 191000 dollars torture chassis. Cause they've looked at what's the lowest price -- you didn't mention likes Dutch that you could find a 191000 dollar brand new -- match. So -- to Baghdad on pay the difference to move up to a different. Package level it's your own pocket. But the give in nineteen -- pay for all the mobility needs you need. It may require a -- huge I don't know that a lot of people know these things and I'm not exaggerating every week. We have 12 or three -- to come to the door is said he had no idea I've been struggling for -- -- using a new idea I was eligible for this. Now here's things I wanted to share but he if if if that listeners come in there there's no obligation. Nobody's there to try to get you to sign on the dotted line we just want to show you what's available. We can talk about -- these programs we can find out if you're eligible for some of the stuff so common interest in quarter. And say here here's here's what I have been through -- -- -- here's the situation you have. We can can look for that. I'm one of the solutions we have four clients over 55. Is very often you get clients turning things in like the veterans get their equipment replaced every two years. So of veteran incumbent kitty brand new vehicle. Turning -- years later it may have. 12151000 miles two years old. There's the perfect vehicle for somebody who's not getting funding because. It's in very affordable price. The -- the conversion already paid for it didn't cost them a lot they're willing to turn it back in to get another new one -- one letting go -- very reasonable price.
