Press release

The Etac Group, a mobility product pioneer, has successfully and for the first time presented its complete portfolio of brands in one powerful and user-focused showcase, at the international trade show Rehacare, in Düsseldorf.

Under the 'Etac R82' German sales company name, the Etac Group assembled its most impressive exhibition stand ever. It encompassed innovative product launches, interactive features and educational presentations regarding mobility solutions for end users, industry professionals and healthcare providers. This rich and diverse showcase provided exhibition highlights with worldwide visitors leveraging the space to share international expertise and networking opportunities.

The redesigned and spacious stand delivered complete accessibility for all with the chance to experience the Etac, R82, Molift, Immedia, Convaid and Star brands. The positive atmosphere, focused on enhancing ability and achievement, was supported by the attendance of German Para Archery Champion Claudia Schäfers – an inspirational Etac wheelchair user.

The Etac R82 stand generated significant footfall and enquiries however several new product launches delivered outstanding levels of interest. These included:

  • NEW Etac Crissy – a remarkable new wheelchair based on Etac's Ability Based Seating™ concept, with pioneering adaptability and new intelligent 2B back support
  • NEW Molift Raiser Pro – building on the proven success of the Molift Raiser, a re-designed solution that takes mobilisation and care to the next level
  • NEW Molift Air – a new overhead hoist range that combines ultimate cost efficiency with world-leading care and moving and handling safety
  • ENHANCED R82 x:panda – as the world's best-selling paediatric dynamic seating system, this latest reiteration provides even more support and comfort for children with complex postural needs

In addition to multiple product launches and demonstrations, Etac distributors benefited from attending an exclusive preview event prior to Rehacare. Business meetings continued at the show alongside other events focused on fun and engagement for children. The R82 mascot Bamboo spent time with children of all ages, who enjoyed several playful activities including the R82 creative table.
