Our History

Three Decades of Client Care
In 1991, our founder Mike Ballard left his career as an investment banker. The following year, he launched National Seating & Mobility (NSM) from his Nashville home, using an innovative business model that broke with traditional re-sale of boxed, one-size-fits-all Rehab products.

Mike’s concept was a company of Rehabilitation Technology Suppliers (RTS) who would consult with physicians and therapists to provide customized adaptive seating systems. Three decades later, the company has grown from five offices to a national branch network of Rehab seating service centers. Each NSM office is supported by corporate and customer service teams that provide regulatory documentation and commercial resources.

NSM now empowers every ATP (think RTS) as final local authority for our referral-based business, relying on these rehabilitation technology experts to deliver The Right Chair and the Best Care.
