Safe and comfortable transport for larger patients.
In a world where “super size me” is still a mantra and video games keep us on the couch, trying to stay fit is a monumental task. It’s no wonder that, according to the National Institutes of Health, more than a third of Americans are obese and that 1 in 20 are extremely obese.
A-TEC is here to help
