Stealth Products has signed a deal to distribute selected positioning components from Ottobock.
In a Sept. 25 news announcement, Stealth Products said the components involved in the agreement are “upper-extremity supports.”
Lorenzo Romero, President of Stealth Products, said in the announcement, “Stealth has built our reputation on being a premier supplier of quality complex rehab positioning solutions. When we learned about the discontinuation of the Ottobock line of upper-extremity supports in our market, we knew these options would fit nicely into the Stealth solutions portfolio.
“We didn’t want to just add a similar product into this category. We wanted to offer a recognizable brand that speaks to a long history of reliability. We feel these products will expand the range of solutions we can provide to our customers, while maintaining the quality you’ve come to expect from Stealth.”
Stealth began taking orders for the Ottobock components on Sept. 24 and expects to start shipping product in early October.
Sarah McCarvill, Ottobock’s Global Product Manager for seating and pediatrics, said the agreement with Stealth Products was ideal.
“Our upper-extremity supports have a reliable and long history in North America,” McCarvill noted. “As our business changed in early 2018, our customers made clear that this part of our portfolio was important for them to continue delivering effective solutions to their clients. It was important for us to find a partner with an established reputation for delivering high-quality postural positioning solutions. With Stealth, we found the right partner.”
