Between the Spokes - Meet Rod Phelps

Jan 25, 2023Mindy Drexler

Strong spokes are the foundation of any wheel.

Here at Strongback Mobility, we want to recognize those who are important spokes on our team. We would like to introduce you to Rod Phelps. Rod has 25 years of experience in the DME market space. His first-hand knowledge in the industry is a welcomed resource for the STRONGBACK dealer locations he supports.

Tell us a little about yourself and what areas do you support.
North Carolina is home for me and also the region that I cover. It's a great place to live and also work.

Do you have any advice for retail stores or other representatives?
"Sitting is Believing" is the STRONGBACK motto for a reason. Having a wheelchair or transport chair in stock so that your customers can try one out and compare it with other brands - it sells itself. The back support is amazing.

Deciding on a wheelchair type is not as easy as it sounds. What features of a Strongback Mobility chair help make that decision to a potential retailer or a user a confident decision?
There are many reasons I like selling the STRONGBACK wheelchairs. Being lightweight is one of the main selling points. The ability to transport and fold the chair makes it very easy for the caregiver. The quick-release wheels are simple to use. Ergonomically, it can't be beaten. This feature makes it that much more comfortable.

What's your favorite thing to do when you are not working?
When I am not working, I like to exercise and play sports. You will also find me listening to classic rock and roll. I love it!

In the North Carolina area and looking to add Strongback Mobility's line of wheelchairs and transport chairs to your product line? Here's how you can reach Rod.
