O'Neill Brings 35 Years of Experience with Complex Rehab Market



PHILADELPHIA, Dec. 16 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Ted O'Neill, a complex rehab specialist with 35 years of experience, has joined Alliance Seating & Mobility (ASM), one of the nation's fastest growing complex rehab companies. O'Neill is an Assistive Technology Supplier (ATS) in Philadelphia, Pa., for ASM (www.alliance-seating.com) and is responsible for sales and service of rehabilitation equipment and commercially available assistive technology products/devices for consumers with disabilities.



"My career has been a continual challenge, and I am happy to be a part of this team of experienced, qualified experts," O'Neill said. "I get the greatest satisfaction from delivering products that increase the independence and comfort of individuals. The look on a child's face and the light in his eyes when he wheels around the room for the first time is a heartwarming experience."



O'Neill has been a RESNA-certified ATS for close to 12 years but has been in the mobility business for more than 35 years. He served on the Board of Directors of the National Registry of Rehab Technology Suppliers (NRRTS) for three years.



Previously, he worked as an RTS for Associated Medical Specialties in Philadelphia and the Chesapeake Rehab Equipment in Collingdale, Pa. In 1992, he started Teamworks, a branch of Reliant Care, which Chesapeake purchased in 2005. O'Neill was also president of Mid-Atlantic Health Associates, a Newton Square-based organization specializing in rehab equipment sales, and a manager at Accurate Medical Service and Mark One Hospital Products.



"Ted brought 35 years of experience to our team. With most of his career spent in the Philadelphia area, he has a unique understanding of what people in the community need to regain their freedom and independence," said Scott Higley, ASM's Vice President of Business Development. "Our team is growing stronger every day, ensuring that we provide the best service possible to our complex rehab patients."



Created in November 2007, ASM has grown from three locations to more than 20 in the past year. ASM provides power mobility solutions for pediatrics and adults with severe physical disabilities related to paralysis, cerebral palsy, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, Multiple Sclerosis, Muscular Dystrophy and other conditions.
