Wednesday, August 23, 2017

Exeter, Pa.-based Pride Mobility Products responded to a local news report in Richmond, Va., about a woman whose scooter stopped working by hooking her up with a local provider, Trust Care Rehab and Mobility, and a new Go Go Elite Traveler. “The normal everyday person can’t just go out and buy a $2,000 scooter to get around,” Brad Rothwell of Trust Care told “12 on Your Side.” “To provide that for her at no charge is fantastic. That’s really why I do this—just to see how happy she was to be able to get out and go see her grandkids.” Gina Houchen has a number of health issues that require a mobility aide, including congestive heart failure and rheumatoid arthritis…Newport Beach, Calif.-based Cure Medical has launched a catheter specifically for children. The 10-inch Pediatric Hydrophilic Cure Catheter, which is free of DEHP, BPA and natural rubber latex, comes with free educational materials that teach children “How to Cath,” including flash cards and a coloring book…Medtrade has announced that Ford will be an exhibitor at this year’s event, Oct. 23-25 at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta. The Dearborn, Mich.-based car giant, which hasn’t exhibited at the HME industry’s largest trade show in several years, will showcase the Transit, its full-size van offering, and the Transit Connect, its compact van offering.
