Rehab Medical eyes national footprint

Thursday, August 16, 2018

INDIANAPOLIS – Rehab Medical now has a presence in 13 states and the complex rehab provider is eyeing a national footprint, according to the Indiana Business Journal. The company hasn’t decided how to accomplish that, though—organically or through acquisitions. Rehab Medical, which started as part of a larger company, Orbit Medical, provides complex power wheelchairs and mobility devices, as well as wound-therapy products, beds and some orthotics. In a rapidly consolidating market, Rehab Medical told the newspaper it differentiates itself from its competition with service, speed and compassion. “This business is so service-driven, and the ability to get a patient a piece of equipment quickly and efficiently is really tough,” Kevin Gearheart, president, told the newspaper. “Some patients have to wait six months. We’re able to do that in half the time.”
