Drive DeVilbiss Healthcare is a leading manufacturer and distributor of durable medical products in the world today, with operations across the globe. The company prides itself on offering the best quality products and providing world-class customer service, technical support and ongoing innovation.

Alan Sullivan, Marketing Manager – Retail Division for Drive DeVilbiss Healthcare, stated that the RISE@THIIS event will provide the organisation with an ideal opportunity to catch up with customers and discuss plans for the 2022 just as the summer season begins.

Alan said: “It’s been a few years since our Retail Division have exhibited at a Trade Show, so we’re all really looking forward to this new B2B Trade event.

“We are delighted at the timing of this year’s show; it’s fallen perfectly for the launch of our AirFold Carbon Fibre Powerchair. This new powered mobility product truly has brought something new and exciting to our range.

“It’s always great to hear about new events in our industry and this one has certainly caught our attention. Initial visitor figures are looking positive, and we hope this show will prove to be a real success, we certainly wouldn’t want to miss out.”

Weighing only 15.85kg, the lightweight AirFold Carbon Fibre Powerchair boasts a black flecked carbon fibre sleek frame in a slimline design. It also features a convenient integral grab handle to aid carrying and lifting into a car boot.

Alan commented: “This fantastic new product folds and unfolds effortlessly and it has several excellent features that we are looking forward to demonstrating on the day!”

Drive will also be showcasing the Autofold Powerchair, following the success of its Manual Folding Powerchair. The powerchair includes several other new features and benefits that have been developed to help enhance the user experience.

“This excellent new addition to the range features a remote control function that enables the chair to be easily folded or unfolded in seconds at the simple touch of a button,” explains Alan.

“The Autofold Powerchair also includes shock absorbing front suspension to help provide extra comfort for a smoother ride. It has a stylish modern design that certainly catches the eye and remote folds to an excellent compact size, ideal for transportation in a car, train, coach or airplane storage.”

Drive has plenty happening for the rest of 2022 that it is looking forward to discussing with visitors. These include the imminent arrival of the Drive DeVilbiss Healthcare Product Catalogue 2022m, with printed stock expected to arrive in the next few weeks.

Alan explains: “This highly anticipated resource provides a comprehensive overview of our entire UK product range and an excellent base level of product information to support our customers. Acting as a one stop resource for our entire product range, we anticipate the catalogue being an invaluable tool for both our staff and our customers.”

The firm is also in the final stages of developing a fresh new website, which is set to go live in the next couple of months. It will also be launching several other new products over a variety of product categories throughout 2022.
