Invacare - A trusted manufacturer and supplier

Invacare buildingInvacare is a global leader in the manufacture and supply of Healthcare Equipment to the Acute, Primary and Community care sectors and has been operating in the healthcare market for over 100 years.

Following Invacare's acquisition of Medical Support Systems (MSS), Invacare retained key personnel involved in the development of the renowned pressure redistributing range that today is synonymous with quality and clinical efficacy. These experts in the 'Static Led Approach' are today at the heart of our Research and Development team and with over 30 years experience in the field, the team is responsible for the creation of all of Invacare's core pressure redistributing products, including the market leading Softform® Premier Active 2.

Invacare's inspiration for the 'Static Led Approach', involved detailed research with leading clinicians from over 15 NHS Trusts and some of the UK's top Universities. This core message has now been adopted by many as an effective pressure ulcer reduction and prevention strategy.
