Products that create possibilities
All our products are developed in close co-operation with users, care providers, therapists and industrial designers. They have one thing in common – they are the best in terms of quality, function, reliability and design that the market has to offer.
Our products aim to facilitate everyday living; to create possibilities for anyone with impaired strength and mobility to live a quality life on his or her own terms. We also have products that simplify the care of a person, that are easy to handle and safe for the user.
In the Scandinavian markets Etac is also the agent of other quality products by other manufacturers like R82, ROHO, Stiegelmeyer and Lück.
We strive to keep our production as environmentally friendly as possible. Materials are selected and products designed with recycling in mind. We aim to minimize use of materials and to optimise packaging for shipping and handling.
We will continue to invest in the future by allocating money to research and development, acquiring new companies and entering new markets.
We strive to retain the cutting edge in design and function in the home health care market.
