NASHVILLE, Tenn. – National Seating & Mobility has acquired the mobility division of Wright & Filippis, positioning the company as the leading provider of complex rehab solutions in Michigan, it says.

“Wright & Filippis is one of the country’s most respected providers of prosthetics, orthotics, custom mobility products and accessibility solutions,” said Bill Mixon, CEO of NSM. “This acquisition allows both companies to focus on our areas of expertise to better serve clients in Michigan.”

NSM will take over Wright & Filippis’ complex rehab operations in metro Detroit and Lansing. Wright & Filippis’ mobility division in Flint will merge with an existing NSM branch in Freeland. NSM also operates a branch in Troy.

Eighteen Wright & Filippis employees, including seven ATPs, will make the transition to NSM.

Wright & Filippis has been shedding different divisions in the past few years to zero in on its prosthetics and orthotics business. It sold its diabetes supply business in 2013, and its HME and respiratory businesses in 2014, leaving O&P and complex rehab and accessibility.

In June, NSM also picked up Mobility Healthcare, with locations in Carrollton and Lewisville, Texas.
