“Once again, we had an extremely compelling array of products across a wide variety of categories,” said David Kopf, editor of HME Business magazine. “The competition was particularly hot in the software and in the sleep categories where the margin of victory was narrow and reflected the continued innovation in those categories. Also, I was also heartened by the turnout in mobility products. It goes to show that despite all the difficulties in funding for that category, that manufacturers keep stepping up to meet and exceed provider and patient demands.
“Also, as always, my thanks and appreciation go out to the judges,” Kopf added. “We had incredible support from the provider community.”
