- Workers’ compensation expertise
- 2-hour response to referrals
- Comprehensive equipment and adaptive housing solutions for catastrophic cases

Our clinical approach to providing the most appropriate equipment gives you the right equipment for the condition at that time.
We work with top manufacturers to identify durable medical equipment solutions that are clinically appropriate for the injured worker — and cost-effective for you.
We provide concierge-level service from a dedicated Rehab Technology Coordinator who will work with the injured worker and you for the life of the claim.
Service and Support
Clear, concise and frequent communication is the hallmark of ATF Medical’s service to customers and injured employees. Rehab specialists help you determine the most appropriate equipment and housing solutions, then handle all the ordering, delivery, set up, and patient education.
Our professionals stay in touch with the injured employee, making sure the solutions are producing the desired outcomes. We also service and maintain the equipment. We continuously communicate with the injured employee and their family to reduce their concerns and give them someone (other than you) to call with questions.
In short, we own the entire DME and home modification process.
A Rehab Technology Coordinator will be your primary contact and will keep you apprised of everything related to the claim’s mobility, rehab and adaptive housing activities. You probably won’t ever need to call them, but you’ll have their direct phone number – and their supervisor’s direct line – just in case.
ATF Medical’s outcomes-driven and clinically guided solutions facilitate the highest levels of independence, functional restoration and patient satisfaction. We provide outstanding customer service while helping you control costs.[/expand]
ATF Medical boasts an in-house team and deep organization of long-term partners who are highly trained and experienced Assistive Technology Professionals (ATPs), Occupational Therapists (OTs), Certified Rehab Technology Specialists (CRTS), and Certified Durable Medical Equipment Specialists (CDMEs). With considerable experience in workers’ compensation, they conduct comprehensive evaluations for each injured worker and draw from a vast array of products and services to recommend optimal solutions.
Adaptive housing solutions are developed by the company’s internal general contractor who works credentialed specialists, including OTs, Certified Environmental Access Consultant (CEAC), Certified Aging in Place Specialists (CAPs), and professionals holding an Executive Certificate in Home Modifications (ECHM). Their solutions blend the best combination of equipment and home modifications to facilitate independence and maximum functionality, while controlling costs.
Our therapists become the primary DME resource for your injured workers. They explain the need for and the benefits of the equipment, ensure a proper fit, and teach injured workers and their caregivers about equipment use. Specialists follow up a few months after delivery to ensure that recommended solutions are on track to produce desired outcomes.
ATF Medical’s team also maintains and services equipment for the life of the claim, so the injured workers turn to us with any issues they’re having. We monitor equipment use and check on the injured employee so we can detect changes in their condition and alert you to ways to prevent wounds, unnecessary hospitalizations or surgeries, and other issues that might lead to injured worker dissatisfaction or unnecessary costs.
Basically, our ATPs and OTs become the injured worker’s go-to, addressing all their concerns – so you don’t have to. [/expand]
