Hoveround ups certification
SARASOTA, Fla. – Hoveround has been certified in ISO9001 and, for the first time, ISO13485, the company announced this month. A team of ISO experts surveyed the company at its manufacturing, distribution and administrative facilities in April 2014 to determine its compliance with industry standards. The team found Hoveround met the “highest level of excellence in the design, manufacture, delivery, distribution and service of motorized wheelchairs, scooters and mobility related products and accessories,” according to a press release. Hoveround has been ISO9001 certified since 1997. New with the ISO13485 certification: the inclusion of rehab technology specialists in the field. Third-party certifiers will audit these specialists to ensure they meet standards, according to the release. “We have no doubt that adding ISO13485 will only help us enhance our quality of service,” stated President and Founder Tom Kruse.
