GrandCare Awarded 5-Star Rating from Top Disability Product Magazine

WEST BEND, Wis., May 23, 2017 /PRNewswire-iReach/ — GrandCare Systems announced today their 5-star award rating from Britain’s trusted disability lifestyle publication, Able Magazine.

Able Magazine reviews products in the disability market to provide a benchmark for excellence and innovation in disability equipment and assistive technology. Products are rigorously tested and given an overall score based on how well the product is made, the user experience, outward design, innovation, and overall value of the product.

“We are humbled to have received the top rating,” said GrandCare CEO and founder, Charlie Hillman. “GrandCare wasn’t just designed for the elderly population, it can also be used as an enabling or empowerment tool by the disabled population. It feels good to know we are helping people live better, safer and healthier lives.”

GrandCare Systems’ exclusive UK partner, ATEL, who submitted GrandCare for this award, started showcasing the GrandCare innovation (GrandCare UK) in conjunction with their other disability and aging-related solutions.

The GrandCare UK technology has been fully localized for use in the UK, including receiving the CE Mark and customizing the GrandCare UK system with British English.

“We take great care to see things from the disabled person’s point of view,” said Tom Jamison, Editor of Able Magazine. “It’s not just about how well a product works, it’s about can I live with it? Does it look good? Great products bring together form and function, be it a new car or a simple gadget to make life that little bit easier. It’s great when we see a cracking product that will genuinely help a disabled person in their day-to-day life.”

Able Magazine has been writing about disability issues and the best in disability products for over 20 years and is a trusted voice in the disability community.
