In January 2017, Drive DeVilbiss Healthcare, based in Port Washington, NY, will debut Inspired by Drive, a combination of three of its rehab companies: Columbia Medical, Specialized Orthotic Services, and Wenzelite Rehab.

“Inspired by Drive’s purpose was fueled by a desire to provide special needs children and their families with products that offer the highest clinical value with a visual appearance that disguises the medical nature of the product,” says Doug Francis, principal & co?founder of Drive DeVilbiss Healthcare, in a media release.

The new company’s initial focus will be to enhance existing products and create new products, specifically in three pediatric rehab areas: alternative positioning, bathing/toileting, and mobility. As time passes, the company aims to expand its product offerings into more complex rehab categories.

“Our goal is to create and bring to market products that are representative of how inspired we are by the grace, love and determination that children with special needs, along with their family members, demonstrate in overcoming the challenges they are faced with in daily living,” said Matt Lawrence, VP & general manager of Drive DeVilbiss Rehabilitation Business, per the release.

Inspired by Drive will be headquartered in Columbia Medical’s current location in Santa Fe Springs, Calif.
