It’s another big day for U.S. veterans with reduced mobility. The National Technical Systems (NTS), a leading provider of qualification testing and certification services in North America, made an announcement this month—an announcement that could change the lives of the injured U.S. military veterans.
NTS announced that it has donated life-changing Action TrackStander wheelchair products to the Wounded Warrior Regiment, a dedicated Marine Corps organization that helps wounded and injured Marines and Sailors return to their pre-deployment lives.
Leading this huge disability-focused effort are NTS Senior Vice President Dave Mann and Willie Jordan, Program Manager for the Wounded Warrior Regiment. The recipients of the donated wheelchair products will be members of the U.S. Marine Corps Corporal who lost their legs and suffered severe injuries while serving for their country.
About the high-tech wheelchair product and NTS:
As mentioned earlier in the recent press release, the state-of-the-art Action TrackStander is an all-terrain wheelchair product that allows injured members to enjoy many outdoor activities.
