Booth 811 – During Medtrade 2016, pull into the Drive DeVilbiss booth and park for a while. It could turn out to be a valuable learning experience. 

The Port Washington, N.Y.-based manufacturer wants to establish strategic business relationships and share its considerable expertise with providers to help boost their success, says Chief Marketing Officer Ed Link.

The key message to Medtrade attendees: “Drive DeVilbiss is more than a supplier—we’re a partner,” says Link. “It begins with our experienced, solution-based professionals helping providers grow their businesses by providing critical insights, training and education, strategic recommendations and executive support.”

New at the booth this year will be the introduction of “Inspired by Drive,” which merges the traditions of three Drive DeVilbiss Healthcare-owned companies into one brand with one common goal—to create and bring market products that represent “how inspired we are by the grace, love and determination that children of special needs, along with their family members, demonstrate in overcoming the challenges they are faced with in their daily living,” Link said.

The creation of “Inspired by Drive” allows Drive DeVilbiss to combine the resources of Columbia Medical, Specialized Orthotic Services and Wenzelite Rehab, which Link says were all “significant contributors” to both the pediatric and adult rehabilitation market place for a combined total of more than 70 years.

“Through this focused effort, “Inspired by Drive” brings to market a line of rehab products that offer the highest levels of innovation, reliability and clinical value, while maintaining a commitment to being cost conscious,” he said.
