Convaid, the company that invented the adaptive assisted wheelchair, has helped children and families living with special needs live fuller, more productive lives since 1976. Convaid manufactures high-performance, easy-to-use and attractive mobility products for all stages of a young persons life, from infancy to young adulthood. Each product is custom built to individual specifications to provide optimum comfort, safety and convenience. In 2015, Convaid was acquired by Sweden-based Etac AB that markets its products under the Etac, Molift, Immedia, Star, R82 and Convaid brands. Together, Convaid and R82 form the Etac Pediatric Group, supplying best-in-class mobility, transportation, standing, walking, seating, bathing and hygiene solutions for the pediatric population.
