21st Century Scientific Secures Small Order with Albuquerque VA Clinic

The small Idaho-based contractor called 21st Century Scientific, Inc. was able to win an order with a VA hospital in Albuquerque, NM on August 12th, 2015. A relatively small order at $19,648.71, it was for a specialized product. While 21st Century is known more for its power wheelchairs, the special order was for two Bounder gurneys (prone carts) -- one manual, and one power.
These products give added mobility to in-patients not capable of being in a seated position during their stay at the hospital -- allowing them to have mobility in the laying position by self propelling, using a manual gurney with 24" drive wheels or through a joystick on a power gurney.
RD Davidson, COO of 21st Scientific, states, "We've been in the industry since 1978. We introduced our first wheelchair in 1989, and specialize in heavy-duty, off-road and bariatric power wheelchairs. We also build many custom niche products like, the Bounder gurneys."
21st Century Scientific, while often taking advantage of micro-purchases through the government's purchase card options, was able to secure the order through the Federal Supply Schedule which they were awarded back in 2007 (though, they held a previous schedule since back in the early 90's).
