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.
