FODAC, Dynarex to Promote DME Partnership at Medtrade Fall Conference

 

Year-long collaboration will expand distribution of vital equipment to disability community

 

TUCKER GA (1 October 2018)Friends of Disabled Adults and Children (FODAC), a non-profit organization providing durable medical equipment (DME) and services to those living with a disability, and Dynarex, a leading medical products provider of disposable and durable medical supplies, are joining forces to help those with disabilities in need of home medical equipment. The two companies are announcing their formal partnership at this year’s Medtrade Fall Expo and Conference, to be held in Atlanta October 15-17, 2018. Dynarex established the charitable program in conjunction with the launch of its Durable Medical Products line at the conference this year. The joint program will include an initial donation from Dynarex of 100 wheelchairs to FODAC and an ongoing commitment to donate a portion of the proceeds from every DME purchase made from the company. FODAC will be responsible for managing the warehousing and distribution of the donated Dynarex products to many groups, including pediatric and veteran initiatives.

 

“Our company has always felt we have more to give to the world than just our products,” said Zalman Tenenbaum, president and CEO, Dynarex Corporation. “When we decided to launch our DME line, we wanted to emphasize how this equipment empowers those with disabilities by enabling them to engage more fully in life. This partnership with FODAC, whose main mission is to help those with disabilities regain their independence and quality of life, syncs well with our core principal of ‘We Care Like Family.’”

 

Dynarex has added a wide range of DME products to its already extensive portfolio of disposable medical supplies and products, including mobility items, rollators, wheel chairs, bathroom safety, beds and rails, mattresses and cushions and patient room accessories. Its new line of DME includes many of the items FODAC supplies at little to no cost to its clients.

 

“We try to match equipment to requests as quickly as possible,” said Chris Brand, president and CEO of FODAC, “but wait times depend largely on our inventory. Now because of this very generous partnership with Dynarex, we will be able to meet the needs of our clients much more quickly, helping them get their lives back on track.”

 

Both Dynarex (booth #1119) and FODAC (booth #2571) are exhibiting at the Medtrade Fall Expo and Conference, scheduled October 15-17 at the Georgia World Conference Center in Atlanta, Georgia. FODAC will be accepting donations of new and gently used DME at the expo; check the Medtrade website for expo hours and schedule.

About FODAC

Now celebrating its 33rd anniversary, Friends of Disabled Adults and Children (FODAC) continues to help people with injuries and disabilities of all ages regain their mobility, independence and quality of life. The non-profit organization provides more than $10 million annually in refurbished durable medical equipment (DME) and home modifications in Georgia and across the United States, all at little or no cost to the recipients. A pioneer in re-use, FODAC keeps 350 tons of materials out of landfills each year by refurbishing and reissuing over 700 DME items every month, and is recognized nationally for best practices. In 2014, FODAC was named to Charities Under 5% Overhead, an organization of charities that have operating overhead of five percent or less.

 

In 2013, Georgia Emergency Management Agency (GEMA) appointed FODAC to serve as the statewide distributor of DME and assistive technology in the event of a large population-affecting emergency situation. In this role, FODAC will warehouse the DME and other equipment, then, working with GEMA and the American Red Cross (ARC) of Georgia, will coordinate the delivery and distribution to emergency shelters around the state.

 

In 2016, Healthcare Quality Association on Accreditation (HQAA) fully accredited FODAC as a durable medical equipment, prosthetics, orthotics and supplies (DMEPOS) provider, thus confirming the organization’s compliance with quality standards established in the 2003 Medicare Modernization Act.
