Thursday, June 15, 2017

Carson, Calif.-based ROVI Mobility Products has named Jacob Titus, a junior at Burlington County Institute of Technology in Medford and Westampton, N.J., as the recipient of its 2017 Design Innovation Award Scholarship. Titus won the award based on his concept for an elevator built into an existing staircase. He will receive $1,500 to put toward continuing his education. ROVI’s connection to BCIT goes back to 2015, when students at the school helped the manufacturer create a test track for a launch party for its ROVI X3 power mobility system…Convaid | R82 will return to the Cure SMA National Conference as a platinum exhibitor. Charles Larose, western region sales manager, and Steve Ricker, eastern region sales manager, will join Matt Abrahams, business development representative, to attend the event, June 29-July 2 at Disneyworld in Orlando, Fla. They will highlight the Convaid Carrot car seat, Convaid Trekker, the R82 Flamingo High-Low and the R82 Stingray. Last year, Convaid | R82 expanded its program of planned giving to Cure SMA by donating Convaid Trekkers to the organization’s Chicago-based loaner pool. The companies have also participated in Cure Walk-n-Rolls throughout the United States.
