'Family affair' at Sunrise

Friday, September 30, 2005

Booth 514 - The folks at Sunrise Medical have reserved more than 9,500 square feet of space at Medtrade so that they can introduce their family of products to their family of providers.
For the annual HME industry autumn get-together, Longmont, Colo.-based Sunrise will debut several new additions to the Sunrise clan, which includes the DeVilbiss, Guardian, Jay, Quickie and Zippie nameplates. Sunrise team members will be on hand to make the introductions.
New displays for Quickie and DeVilbiss stand to get a lot of attention from booth visitors. Quickie is unveiling its Quickie Rhythm and Quickie Groove power rehab bases that offer mid-wheel, front-wheel and rear-wheel drive formats. The new Quickie Rehab Power Platform features a modular power seating system called PerfectFit, designed by Quickie Electronics to fit users' current clinical needs with an eye on future uses as well.
The controls were developed in conjunction with Delphi, the Troy, Mich.-based electronics manufacturer known for its role in the development of XM radio, power door closure systems and airbag systems for the automotive industry.
DeVilbiss will be conducting live demonstrations of a new oxygen conserver testing device that it has produced in tandem with Apple Valley, Minn.-based Valley Inspired Products. Other devices are also being showcased, including the DeVilbiss 515A 5-liter oxygen concentrator and the DeVilbiss RPM AutoAdjust.
In keeping with the relaxed family gathering atmosphere, Sunrise will host a "happy hour" cocktail reception at the booth in the late afternoons during the first two days of the show.
"We are confident our booth and its special features will once again cause a stir and generate excitement for attendees and the industry," said Kristin Mastin, Sunrise respiratory marketing director.
