At Accessibility Medical®, we all come to work every day because we want to solve the biggest problem for individuals who are disabled, aging or have chronic health concerns. With healthcare cost increasing on average of 14.1% annually one of the largest challenges is simply the expense. Managing his own Muscular Dystrophy, our founder and CEO, D. Garrett Drake brought together leadership with one goal, figure out how to disrupt the cost of medical equipment.
For several months we traveled worldwide across Asia, Latin America and within the United States having direct conversations with leading manufacturers, consultants, engineers, and healthcare experts. In that time, we also established our own capacity for manufacturing FDA approved bathing aids and mobility medical equipment. But we didn't stop there, we began to realize the number of equipment that could be reused if we could create a thorough sanitation and refurbishing process. Working directly with the State of Missouri we created another way to bring affordability to the marketplace by offering quality refurbished equipment that look and function like new. Our refurbished equipment is available to non-Missouri residents as well.
Throughout the history of business, too often we've seen profit over people. Our mission is to flip this philosophy because we believe everyone deserves the opportunity to live independently and afford the chance to maintain their healthcare challenges. We want to make a difference addressing one of the largest healthcare challenges, making medical equipment and healthcare supplies affordable for everyone.
