Permobil has signed an agreement to be the exclusive distributor of Vicair products in Canada, starting June 1.
In an April 25 news announcement, Permobil said the agreement is a “natural fit that aligns” with Permobil’s Vicair distribution agreement in the United States.
Vicair produces skin-protection and positioning wheelchair cushions, including the Adjuster O2, Active O2 Low, and Vector O2. Inside Vicair cushions are hundreds of SmartCells that work to redistribute pressure while providing temperature and moisture regulation.
Mike Kozlowski, Permobil’s Regional VP of Sales, said in the announcement, “Permobil Canada is thrilled to announce that we will be partnering with Vicair. The addition of Vicair’s unique solutions to our portfolio supports Permobil’s commitment to deliver high-quality products that meet the individual needs of our customers. Additionally, Vicair shares Permobil’s values of innovation, research, and customer satisfaction, making them a natural choice for collaboration.”
Max Rogmans, Vicair’s founder and CEO, said, “It is with great confidence that we welcome this collaboration by adding Vicair to the existing Permobil seating and positioning range of products available in Canada. The Permobil sales and clinical education teams are a highly skilled and motivated group of individuals who focus on achieving optimal results for the end users. We look forward to seeing the Vicair products being supported by these highly qualified professionals.”
