More than 40 years of setting new standards
Already from the start the products were developed with the user´s needs as basis, in close co-operation with industrial designers. The result was products with form and function which by far surpassed the standard at the time.
Therapists made our products a success
Therapists were hired to provide better in-house knowledge of the user’s everyday life. This is a decision we are very glad to have taken. They knew what was missing in the healthcare business, and soon many new technical aids were produced. Our home care products became an immediate success.
A young inventive man who changed Etac
In 1977 a young man working on the family farm had an accident with a tractor which overturned. The accident resulted in a spinal injury. His active nature was incompatible with the wheelchairs of the time and soon he started to make his own wheelchairs. Etac recognized his skill and hired him as a Product Manager. With his experience and knowledge as basis Etac developed and introduced one of the first active wheelchairs to the market.
