Entered details will appear here.
Contact the Motion location nearest you, or if you’re working with a therapist, have them reach out to us on your behalf. Our team will take the time to understand your needs, and offer advice to help you move through the funding and purchase process.
We can match your clinical requirements with the right high-quality, reliable products. That means thinking about fit, function and lifestyle considerations as we zero in on equipment that helps you stay independent, and safe.
We help you and your therapist demystify funding. That means explaining the ins and outs of the process, so your funding application can be completed with confidence.
From government funders to not-for-profit organizations, there are all kinds of programs to help cover the costs of mobility and home accessibility equipment. Different provinces have different options. Your eligibility will vary based on the program and factors like the kind of product you need, your age, or your income.
Funding applications require a lot of detailed information. It will take you and your therapist a little time to work through the process. We can help you kickstart your application by providing helpful information.
Once your funding is approved, we’ll move ahead quickly to communicate with you, place your order, and ensure delivery as soon as possible. Let us know if you’d like to talk about rentals or repairs that can bridge the gap while you await funding approval, or equipment delivery.
It can take weeks, or even months, to hear back on funding approval. Whether you’re a client or a therapist, contact us early. We can answer paperwork questions, so you can get applications done, and move forward quickly.
We always wait for funding approval to place orders. In some cases, you can choose to make a pre-payment for the full cost of the equipment so we can place your order right away. This works like a deposit that’s refunded once your funding comes through.
We’re all about maximizing mobility, performance, and safety. Once your equipment arrives, we’ll have a final fitting appointment to make sure everything fits and feels just right. We’ll talk you through maintenance and care, and answer any additional questions you may have. Your equipment is essential. That’s why we offer rentals, or repair existing equipment, to keep you independent and safe while you work through the funding and purchasing process.
Exceptional customer service helping us select the perfect walker for my mother and assisting with the [funding] application by providing space for the physiotherapist to examine her right in the store…You don’t see this kind of customer service these days and I wanted you to know how much we appreciate his care and service.

In certain cases, a client may choose to provide payment upfront, in full, before funding has been approved. That means Motion can proceed with ordering their equipment. But, don’t forget: most funders will only pay the amount approved after the date of approval. If the client asks Motion to order the equipment before receiving funding approval, the client will be responsible for paying the full amount of the equipment to Motion if the application isn’t approved.
Remember: a client may choose to bridge the gap between application and delivery of their final equipment by making the most of Motion’s rental equipment and repair service offerings.
Please speak to a Motion representative for complete details.
Motion provides the complete equipment required for evaluation during the clinical assessment and equipment selection process. Our focus is always on the importance of fit and function. A client’s therapist and one of our Motion consultants will work with you to schedule mutually agreed upon dates and times for you to test equipment that is equivalent to the prescribed device. Keep in mind, we don’t leave equipment behind during the clinical assessment and equipment selection process. Once funding is approved (or in select cases, payment in full has been received), we’ll order and ultimately deliver the device.
Your authorized therapist is responsible for accurately completing and signing all government funding applications. Applications can be submitted to the funding body directly by your authorized therapist, or through Motion on your therapist’s behalf. Motion provides quality control for funding applications. We review the application for clerical errors (e.g. missing signatures, missing responses to required eligibility questions, etc.) as well as inconsistencies between the device the authorized therapist has prescribed and the prescription details on the application form.
Our dedicated team of education leaders also provides learning and development opportunities for authorized therapists to enhance their knowledge and application accuracy. That’s one way we help ensure that equipment is getting to clients as quickly as possible.

Yes. We work closely with funders and charitable organizations across the country that assist in covering the costs associated with the purchase and/or repair of mobility equipment (based on eligibility, which varies). To learn more, speak with a Motion representative about the opportunities available, or refer to the funding program information on this page.
In most cases, new equipment will be supported by a manufacturer warranty. Manufacturer warranties often cover the cost of parts required for a repair, but labour costs may not be included. Select programs help with funding for associated repair and maintenance costs.
At Motion, we have trained and certified technicians and partners who support the purchase and installation of a wide range of mobility and accessibility solutions. They can also take care of any repair and maintenance needs that may arise in the future.
