Motion, formerly Motion Specialties, has been providing mobility solutions since 1985. They support individuals living the experience as well as their circle of care by delivering the right comprehensive solutions that empower and fulfill. We will find out about the range of products and designs and the process of assessing each individual’s needs to engineer a custom solution.

The majority of their customer base are children and, recently, Wendi spoke on Global BC in connection with Variety Week about all Motion has to offer young people with mobility and accessibility needs.
