Throughout Europe, clinicians, healthcare services and manufacturers are innovating with new products, clinical practices, and services. The disabled community will benefit further if these best practices are communicated across all countries.
The aim of Invacare, as both a European and worldwide Company, is to ensure that users, clinicians and customers receive the best selection of products, services and training.
Invacare traces its roots back to 1885 when the Worthington Company began producing a line of vehicles for people with physical disabilities. Through the years, the Company has grown and expanded dramatically. The history of Invacare, as it is known today, began in the late 1970s. At that time, Technicare, a Cleveland-based medical-device manufacturer, was purchased by Johnson & Johnson. They decided to sell the wheelchair division known as Invacare.
A. Malachi Mixon III, who worked as a vice president of marketing at Technicare, organised a small group of investors, including J.B. Richey, to raise the $7.8 million needed for the purchase.
Through the years listening to its customers, Invacare has grown and expanded to become the preferred supplier in healthcare both in terms of customer support and innovation.
Today Invacare is a modern, global, market-leading business with a rich and fascinating history; one that dates back to 1885. We are the global leader in the manufacture and distribution of innovative home and long-term care medical products that promote recovery and active lifestyles. Worldwide we employ over 5,000 people and market our products in 100 countries around the world. Within EMEA, Invacare directly operate in all European countries and via a distributor network in the Eastern European, Middle Eastern and African regions.
