NEW YORK, March 10, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- United Spinal Association is offering businesses who serve the disability community an opportunity to generate leads, traffic, and sales through its newly developed Affiliate Service Provider Program.

The program also enables consumers, caregivers, and professionals to discover valuable disability-related products or services, both regionally and nationally.

The Affiliate Service Provider Program (http://providers.spinalcord.org), consists of an online directory offering a full spectrum of clinical care, products and services, with an emphasis on SCI/D.

"Convenient access to reputable support is something we know our members really want and that the larger disability community will welcome," said Megan Lee, national sales manager at United Spinal Association.

"We developed the Affiliate Service Provider program to ensure wheelchair users and other consumers living with spinal cord injuries and disorders can take advantage of the very best products and services - discoverable all in one place," added Lee.

The Affiliate Service Provider program directory is housed on United Spinal's SCI Resource Center website, which has thousands of unique visitors per month. Consumers accessing the directory can search listings by state, keyword, and category.

"We are confident that linking the directory to our Resource Center website, which is heavily trafficked by disability consumers and individuals seeking timely support, will only add to the program's success," said Lee.

For an annual fee of $250 to join the Affiliate Service Provider Program, businesses can reach thousands of individuals living with spinal cord injuries and disorders (SCI/D) eager to learn more about products and services that will optimize their health, independence and quality of life.
