Kansas Truck Mobility, based in Wichita, Kansas, is the only mobility equipment dealer for central and western Kansas with QAP certification by the National Mobility Equipment Dealers Association (NMEDA). Mobility equipment is more than a luxury – it represents freedom and independence to people with physical disabilities who need to get to work, appointments or just have the flexibility to get where they want to go when they need to.
We present a full line of wheelchair vans. We have available new and used, as well as wheelchair lifts for cars and trucks, adaptive seating options, wheelchair securement systems, and hand controls. In addition, a second company, Going Up LLC, installs and services stairlifts and vertical platform lifts for the home.
In 2008, Kansas Truck Mobility opened an interactive mobility showroom. We believe that a customer can make a more informed buying decision if she/he is abile to see, touch and feel working models of the equipment in a climate-controlled environment. Not only do customers utilize this showroom when selecting equipment, but the medical community - OT's, PT's, case managers - come to our showroom to learn what kind of adaptive equipment is available, and about new technology.
In 2009, Kansas Truck Mobility launched an annual fall event, the Mobility Rodeo, to bring together people with disabilities and manufacturers of mobility equipment, agencies, organizations and private business who have products and services designed for the disabled community. It is the only event of its kind in this region and is attended by hundreds of people with disabilities and health care providers from all over Kansas.
Maurice Linnens, president, and his wife, Rita, have owned Kansas Truck Mobility since 1999. However, Kansas Truck Mobility, as part of Kansas Truck Equipment Company, has been in business at the same location since 1959. As a small business owner, the Linnens take their community responsibility seriously. Kansas Truck Mobility participates in a number of community events which support the disability community, including the MDA Muscle Walk, Walk MS Wichita, the PACE Race, Challenge Games, Wheelchair Sports of Wichita, and KETCH Burger Bash.
