Invacare® is making a comeback in the complex rehab market. In July, the United States Food and Drug Administration notified the company that it had successfully fulfilled the agency’s requirements to resume full operations at its corporate and Taylor Street manufacturing facility in Elyria, Ohio.
As a result, Invacare can now produce and sell all products made in its Taylor Street facility without the previous restrictions from the consent decree.
In August, Invacare launched the Invacare TDX® SP2 Power Wheelchair with LiNX® Technology and Motion Concepts Ultra Low Maxx Positioning System. It is an exciting time for Invacare, and VGM/U.S. Rehab values their partnership with the company and are excited to move forward together.
VGM and Invacare have had a long-standing relationship that stems back to the beginning of VGM Group and the relationship between the late Van Miller and Mal Mixon. Invacare was the first manufacturer to sign a relationship with VGM in 1986.
“We are very excited for Invacare to be able to sell its custom power wheelchairs without restrictions,” said Greg Packer, president, U.S. Rehab. “This, in itself, will make it much easier to do business with our long-time partner and friend, Invacare.”
“As we move forward, we are excited to continue the partnership between VGM Group and Invacare,” said Brian LaDuke, VP of Rehab Channel & Product Marketing at Invacare. “Together, we will continue our commitments to providing solutions for the HME and complex rehab industries.”
Invacare is ready to drive business with their recent launch of their new TDX SP2 with LiNX electronics. The LiNX electronics system includes a touch screen display, wireless programming, and remote monitoring for better clinical evaluations, easy, intuitive programming, and great connected functionality for providers.
The LiNX electronics will change how equipment is set up and delivered. Changes to programming can be completed real-time. Bluetooth technology allows for chair, motor, and battery usage tracking and can be checked by the MyliNX smartphone app.
