Moving the HME Industry Forward


Manufacturer Product Showcase at Medtrade Spring is Open to All

March 16, 2015

LAS VEGAS – Join four of the top manufacturers in the HME industry for an interactive session (moderated by Mike Sperduti [pictured], CEO of The Mike Sperduti Companies) that will provide details on some of their best products. Learn the benefits these products hold for patients, and how to best merchandise and market these products.  

Scheduled for Tuesday, March 31, from 1:30 p.m. – 3:00 p.m., in Islander G at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas, Manufacturer Product Showcase featured products/speakers are:  

• Quantum Rehab iLevel & Edge 2.0 Power Seating presented by Jay Brislin, MSPT

• Pure Oxygen Concentrator and PureFill Oxygen Compressor from Drive Medical
“My presentation will focus on how three related products represent an opportunity for every HME provider to return to the days when we were a relevant and even integral part of the health care supply chain and continuum,” says Mitchell Yoel, MPT, executive vice president of Business Development, Drive Medical Design & Mfg. “To stop the devaluation of our industry, we need to provide value. We need to explain how expertise in home equipment and technology is required to maximize patient outcomes. Drive is now releasing a 3600 oxygen delivery solution that includes three products made in the USA by Drive respiratory engineers, in our CHAD Therapeutics manufacturing facility in Lehigh Acres, Fla.”

• CastCoverz! from CastCoverz!
“CastCoverz! is looking forward to presenting at Medtrade Spring’s inaugural Manufacturer Product Showcase,” says Annette d. Giacomazzi, owner. “Medtrade Spring has provided yet another opportunity for retailers to learn about providing for and meeting customers’ needs. Orthopedics is an under-served market which translates to impulse purchase opportunities for retailers.”  

• Apogee Essentials Intermittent Catheters from Hollister
“The Apogee Essentials line of intermittent catheters from Hollister was developed based on feedback from healthcare providers and patients who are facing declining reimbursement rates,” says Lydia Cannady, product manager, Continence Care, Hollister Inc. “The Apogee Essentials line offers quality from a trusted brand, comfort expected from an Apogee catheter and an affordable price.”
