Human Care, a medical device company, and part of the Applied Value Group is well-known for their rollators. This month they have begun a cooperation with the charitable organization Resources without Borders and have donated rollators that will be sent to Mozambique.
Resources without Borders is a Swedish organization that delivers donated medical aids and other resources to countries with greater needs. The organization arranges shipment and safe travel of goods, and make sure to deliver them to the right people and institutions, where they also supply knowledge and training in how to use all donated resources.
This cooperation is a part of the social responsibility program that Human Care have established, including several charities, all with the focus on delivering help to self-help.
“Simply donating products and funding is not the enough for us a medical device company. Through Resources without Borders we also get the possibility to share knowledge in how the products are used in a safe and efficient way. These rollators will go to healthcare institutions where the staff will be educated in the products, and thereby ensuring that they will have the best possible clinical benefits for the patients.” CMO Marcus Larsson says.
“Studies have shown multiple benefits of Walking Aids; supporting mobility in the older generation making them able to move safely in and out of their homes instils autonomy as well as increases self-confidence. Here in Sweden for instance, rollators are a common part of aiding the elder generation in staying active longer in society. And we are very glad to make an similar impact in places with limited possibilities, such as Mozambique, through our cooperation with Resources without Borders.” Marcus Larsson continues.
Human Care’s first donation of rollators includes the models Carl-Oskar, Rebel and neXus.
