How Does Crytico Work – Part 2: Reading Reviews on Products and Services

In part 1 of this blog, we focused on writing reviews and rating mobility products and services.  In this blog post we will concentrate on making the most of those reviews that have been written by your peers.

First we should point out that Crytico is a great resource whether you’ve used mobility products / services for decades or are brand new to this world of assisted devices.  With thousands of products on the website and hundreds of local mobility providers, consumers can browse crytico.com and get introduced to products and services they didn’t know exist.  Once you find a product that may interest you, click the “more info” or “get quote” button to be connected with a dealer who sells that product.  You no longer have to visit dozens of websites to figure out who sells what where…let us do the work for you.  Crytico brings everything together in one website.

Crytico

Did you know there was such a think as Automatic Door Openers for your home?   What about Standing Devices which are a great help for caregivers?  People are surprised to hear that Toyota makes a Sienna minivan equipped with a transfer seat called the Auto Access Seat.  These products and thousands more are listed on Crytico.com.

Tips for reading reviews on Crytico.com

  • Are they real?  Yes!  Every reviewer on Crytico.com is authenticated to ensure 100% authenticity.  If we cannot make contact with the reviewer, the post is removed from our website.
  • Find reviews that give specific information.  Hearing that a product or local provider is “great” is always good to hear, but does that help your buying decision?  Did the person mention a particular person they like or a particular feature that makes their life easier/harder?
  • Don’t be turned off by “negative” reviews.  Sometimes negative reviews are written out of frustration that may exacerbate a situation.  Thoroughly read the review and see if that person’s grief is warranted and see if there is a string of negative reviews on the same issue.  This may be a red flag.
  • How does the company respond to reviews?  Whether you are in the market for a wheelchair van, or looking for a local dealer who sells handicap accessible vans, it’s nice to see how the companies respond to people who have taken the time to write reviews on their products and/or business.
