Rebranding from Etac R82 to Etac

We simplify our company name from Etac R82 to Etac. Still providing the same well-respected products

Founded in 1973, Etac is one of the world’s leading developers and providers of ergonomic assistive devices and patient handling equipment, with the well-respected product brands R82, Convaid, Molift, Immedia, Star, Etac and recently also Ki Mobility*

However, many have only known us through one or two of our product brands due to several company names and websites.

By adopting Etac as our corporate brand, we take the first step in making it easier to get to know our company, interact with us and explore our full product offering. As Etac, we continue to provide our well-respected product brands, only in a simpler way.

* Etac has recently acquired Ki Mobility and the ambition is for Ki Mobility’s UK organisation to join Etac. 
As for now, it is business as usual so please continue to place orders, interact with sales personnel and generally communicate with Ki Mobility as you always have.
