Sportaid is not just another catalog/internet provider. Our history and customer service are what makes us different from other medical equipment suppliers. In 1987, I was competitively racing and a member of the US Disabled Track Team. My wife, Stacy, was a coach for the US team and the local racing team was sponsored by the Shepherd Center, where she also worked as a recreational therapist. Having designed and raced wheelchairs since, I was blessed with the opportunity to travel all over the world to compete in road races and track events. It became apparent to me there was a need for a supplier of products for disabled athletes. Sportaid was the name given to this idea. In 1988, Sportaid was the first company of its kind. Sportaid has grown from a supplier of racing tires, wheelchairs, racing suits, and other racing related equipment to a supplier of everyday wheelchairs, wheelchair cushions, medical supplies, urological supplies, and daily living aids. Medaid, a division of Sportaid, assists our customers in getting third party reimbursement. In 1996, we launched our website and became the first supplier of wheelchairs and related products on the internet.
