Pride wins pioneering healthcare product award at Medtrade
Mobility product specialist Pride Mobility has won an Innovative HME Retail Product Award for its Jazzy Air 2 powerchair, which was presented at Medtrade 2018.
Medtrade is a home medical equipment (HME) trade show in the US, where thousands of innovations are displayed in the mobility, respiratory, sleep, rehab and aids to daily living sectors.
The Innovative HME Retail Product Awards recognise a variety of pioneering products within the HME sector.
All products were judged on their contribution to people’s quality of life and how well they would work in a retail environment. Entries were also judged on: marketing support provided to suppliers, innovation, functionality, quality/durability, aesthetics, ease of retail set-up, and pricing.
Alongside Pride’s Jazzy Air 2 powerchair, the judges gave an Innovative HME Retail Product Award to the Flyp Nebulizer from Convexity Scientific and the DFree incontinence solution from Triple W.
Due to a multitude of innovative features, the Jazzy Air 2 secured an award. The powerchair can be safely elevated to 10 inches while driving at 3.5mph because of the stability of its chassis.
In addition, the powerchair features Active-Trac suspension, which provides stability in the raised and lowered position. Other features include a tight turning circle of 48.26cm, a mid-wheel drive design and LED markers.
Pride Mobility is a designer and manufacturer of mobility products, including powerchairs, scooters and lift chairs, for people with disabilities and restricted mobility.
