Retail award winners announced

Friday, October 17, 2014

ATLANTA – Medtrade has announced five winners for this year’s Innovative HME Retail Product Awards.

The winners are Core Products, for its WiTouch Wireless TENS Unit; TheraPeaz for its TheraPeaz Hot/Cold Therapy; Golden Technologies, for its Shiatsu Lift Chair; Motivo, for its Motivo Tour (Walker); and SCA Personal Care for its TENA Skincare System.

Motivo is a first-time exhibitor at Medtrade, which takes place next week, Oct. 20-24, at the Georgia World Congress Center.

“Medtrade gives us a great opportunity to launch our all new Motivo Tour walker by connecting directly with the dealers and allowing them to touch and feel the innovation in person,” says Jeremy Knopow, co-founder.

The awards highlight a growing interest in retail-oriented items.

“Medtrade is the absolute best place to find solutions in this tough new HME world,” said Jim Greatorex, president of Portland, Maine-based Black Bear Medical. “Where else can you find new and alternative product offerings to off-set lost revenue?”

Greatorex will host an education session at the show on Wednesday, Oct. 22 from 9:15 to 10 a.m. Each winner will get five minutes to talk.

The products will be on display in the manufacturers’ individual booths as well as at the Ideas in Retail Display (booth 744). 

This retail awards were created in 2013.
