ELYRIA, Ohio – Invacare is a national sponsor of this week’s 37th Annual National Veterans Wheelchair Games. The games, which run from July 17-22 in Cincinnati, feature a multitude of sporting events, including basketball, handcycling, track and table tennis. “The pure talent, tenacity and devotion to the sport demonstrated by these veteran athletes makes us honored to continue to show our support,” said Dean Childers, senior vice president and general manager of Invacare North America. Invacare associates started their supporting role on Sunday, when they met athletes at the airport to help ensure their wheelchairs were unloaded and assembled properly. Throughout the week, they’re also offering repairs and replacements. Additionally, during the event’s expo day, Invacare will display several products, including its new küschall custom manual wheelchairs; and its Invacare TDX SP2 power wheelchair with LiNX technology, which is set to launch in the third quarter of this year.
