Aging 2.0 - Pitch-4-Partners 2016 Winner at OPTIMIZE conference at the intersection of innovation and aging.

URise Products, LLC announced today that its StandUp Walker has won two product awards in October: the HME Business 2016 New Product Award as well as Aging 2.0’s Pitch-4-Partners Award.

“The awards from both home medical equipment experts as well as from experts in aging demonstrate the real need for innovative mobility products that help people stay independent,” said Kenneth C Paulus, CEO of URise Products, LLC.

StandUp Walker recently received the HME Business New Product Award (Retail category), which honors outstanding product development achievements by HME manufacturers and service providers. StandUp Walker will be recognized at the 2016 Medtrade Fall Expo in Atlanta November 1-3 and featured on the HME-Business website and in the November 2016 issue of HME-Business Magazine.

StandUp Walker also won Pitch-4-Partners at Aging 2.0’s OPTIMIZE Conference in San Francisco on October 12-14. After being voted by attendees to be selected to pitch, StandUp Walker was the unanimous selection of the esteemed panel of aging industry experts and investors. It is especially noteworthy that StandUp Walker was the only low tech product pitched. As part of the award, URise Products received a year membership in Aging 2.0’s Alliance.

Introduced to the market in April 2016, the StandUp Walker is an innovative 2-in-1 Stand-Assist device + mobility walker that enables the user to independently lift themselves from a seated position easily and safely. StandUp Walker weighs 10.5 lbs and holds up to 400 lbs. It collapses for transport.

“StandUp Walker combines a static device that helps you get up with a walker that assist you in getting around,” Paulus said. “When someone has difficulty in standing up, it can cost several thousand dollars to equip the home with bars, toilet seat riser and a lift chair. StandUp Walker can replace all those items and has the added benefit of being able to take it outside the home.”
