Enable Me, LLC Names Entrepreneur Joseph Scanlan as President

TAMPA, Fla. — Enable Me, a Tampa-based provider of technologically-advanced, user-friendly movement therapy devices, has named Joseph Scanlan president. Scanlan brings more than 30 years of entrepreneurial experience in leadership, marketing, sales, operations and personnel development to Enable Me.

Scanlan’s background stretches across the healthcare, manufacturing, distribution, real estate and environmental industries. Formerly a certified public accountant (CPA) with Deloitte, Scanlan has owned and co-owned multiple businesses, including a healthcare company specializing in respiratory medication distribution. He has had business involvement with IBM, Marshall and Stevens, The Webb Companies, The American Shipbuilding Company and others, including the position of Chief Operating Officer at cancer-vaccine R&D firm Morphogenesis Inc.

Scanlan is a Vietnam combat veteran.

“With his exceptional business leadership and managerial skills, coupled with his superior ability to focus, plan and execute, I’m totally confident Joe will help us reach the aggressive financial, service and market expansion objectives he and I have set for this company,” commented Mike Laky, CEO of Enable Me.

Enable Me, the largest provider of products from German manufacturer RECK-Technik GmbH & Co. KG in the United States, was recently awarded a five-year contract to supply the Reck MOTOmed line of products to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.  Enable Me also is under contract to provide mobility-enhancing devices to healthcare giant Encompass Health, formerly Health South.

Healthcare facilities and organizations are using the MOTOmed line of products as key components in their early mobility programs, which have a significant bed space return on investment (ROI) by helping patients recover more quickly and advance to other levels of care or discharge.

Enable Me’s mission is to improve the quality of life by providing user-friendly and motor-assisted movement therapy devices designed to restore natural body movement in people suffering from neuromuscular injury or disease.

“It is basic medical knowledge that a static human body will deteriorate at a greater rate than an active human body,” Laky said. “Enable Me gets the body moving, enhancing blood flow and renal activity, reducing spasticity and urinary tract infections, and improving overall quality of life.”

Enable Me finds data showing early mobility cuts length of ICU stay

TAMPA, Fla. – Healthcare facilities can cut intensive care unit (ICU) patient length of stay an average of more than two days and generate cost savings by taking advantage of the new breed of motor-assisted, technologically-advanced movement therapy devices, according to research found by Tampa-based Enable Me.

“The research we found from Johns Hopkins showed a financial model based on implementation of early rehabilitation programs projected net financial savings in 20 of 24 scenarios ranging up to $3.7 million annually,” commented Joseph Scanlan, President of Enable Me. “That’s a savings in healthcare costs that CEOs, CFOs and boards can really be proud of.”

“It is basic medical knowledge that a static human body will deteriorate at a greater rate than an active human body,” said Mike Laky, CEO of Enable Me. “This modern breed of user-friendly early mobility therapies get the patient’s body moving, enhancing blood flow and renal activity, reducing spasticity and urinary tract infections and improving the patient’s overall quality of life.”

A 2017 University of Cincinnati College of Medicine Narrative Review, Early Rehabilitation After Stroke, concluded the best results in early rehabilitation have been seen in upper extremity constraint-induced movement therapy (CIMT) studies.

Healthcare facilities and organizations using Reck’s MOTOmed line of products from Enable Me as key components in their Early Mobility Programs are also showing significant bed space return on investment (ROI) by helping patients recover more quickly and advance to other levels of care or discharge.

“Most patients can use MOTOmed while never leaving their wheelchair or bed,” added Scanlan. “There is no need for a potentially unsafe transfer to another device and that lowers the risk of a fall or spinal stress on the therapist or caregiver.”

Data-driven physical therapy is in higher demand by providers and researchers, CMS and insurance companies, and Enable Me’s products and services track patient activity and training so the statistics of recovery and progress can be documented.

“With the objective data our devices generate, we can show the metrics of recovery and the ongoing proof that the therapy is working,” Laky said. “The Letto 2 is often the device of choice for clinicians.”

Enable Me, top U.S. provider of movement therapy devices, Awarded 5-year contract from U.S. Veterans Administration

TAMPA, Fla. – Enable Me, a leading U.S. provider of technologically-advanced, motor-assisted movement therapy devices, announces that the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs has awarded Enable Me a five-year contract to supply the Reck MOTOmed line of products that restore natural body movement in veterans recovering from neuro muscular injury or disease.

“The VA contract allows us to continue to help improve the quality of life for veterans, their families and caregivers,” said Mike Laky, CEO of Tampa-based Enable Me. “The contract is a vote of confidence by the VA, which is one of the world’s largest integrated healthcare systems, that our products and services have proven benefits our wounded warriors and their families deserve.”

Laky explained that because the technologically-advanced, motor-assisted therapy devices in the Reck MOTOmed line of products help patients recover mobility and go home sooner, they reduce the length of stay and also reduce the cost of care for the government and the taxpayer. And, many veterans suffering from chronic neuro muscular conditions benefit from using the movement therapy devices in their homes after discharge from the hospital.

The Department of Veterans Affairs has a total inpatient and long-term care capacity of more than 42,000 beds.

“The main benefit is getting the veteran back on their feet again sooner, literally. It’s a very cool thing to be out there with people who have not had the ability to move, and all of a sudden, now they can. It’s a new life for them,” said Jill Girard, Director of Business Development for Enable Me.
