Postville, Iowa (PRWEB) October 16, 2012
At a time when many feel uncertain about the direction of our economy and healthcare, the nation’s leading custom electric bed manufacturer is finding small business success in both arenas. Transfer Master develops innovative home care bed solutions that are manufactured entirely in the United States.
As Americans become more informed than ever about their own healthcare choices, home care providers are eager to find solutions that can meet each patient’s specific needs. Transfer Master founder, Aaron Goldsmith, will be unveiling the redesigned bed collection at Medtrade in Atlanta, Georgia, an annual expo for the home medical industry. Providers from across the nation attend Medtrade to find new and innovative products to bring back to their patients.
“There’s no question that everyone wins when we increase our clients’ independence and keep them at home,” says Goldsmith, “but we also wanted to make quality of life a priority. Our customers spoke and we answered. For example, they wanted hospital beds uniquely styled like furniture, allowing spouses to sleep in the same bedroom together.”
The first Transfer Master bed, introduced in 1993, had one main focus in mind: easy transfer between wheelchair and bed. Armed with over 20 years of experience and thousands of customers served, Goldsmith began rethinking the Transfer Master Hi-Low line – and it has been transformed into a collection of fully-customizable bed solutions. The new line, engineered with both the patient and caregiver experiences firmly in mind, is built to meet the unique medical or lifestyle needs of each user.
“We have greatly expanded the custom features that improve the end-user’s experience,” says Goldsmith, “And we redesigned the base. It splits into two sections for easy transport and delivery, then our patent-pending ‘tool-free’ process simply snaps the bed back together.”
Innovative product development aside, Transfer Master is also a leader in the manufacturing community, bucking the trend to outsource manufacturing of medical equipment. All Transfer Master products are (and have always been) made in the United States.
“I certainly understand the temptation to outsource product manufacturing,” he explains, “Cheap goods are tempting, however, when it comes to our products I’m just not comfortable enough with the quality of overseas production. The craftsmanship and quality we have found in Iowa is really the ‘secret’ to our success.”
Transfer Master’s 20 year legacy is providing innovative, custom bed solutions meeting a wide range of specifications. They are best known for creating the first height-adjustable bed to help with patient transfer between wheelchair and bed.
