SPIRIT LAKE, IOWA - BROWN MEDICAL INDUSTRIES (BMI) is proud to announce that three products manufactured by the company have earned the Ease of Use Commendation from the Arthritis Foundation.
The Arthritis Foundation program recognizes consumer products designed to be comfortable and effective, as well as easy to use by patients with arthritis. Brown Medical Industries earned the foundation’s seal on IMAK Arthritis Gloves, IMAK SmartGlove and Nice Stretch X Lite night splint for plantar fasciitis.
Products earning the commendation undergo rigorous testing at a research facility, including evaluation by a panel of individuals with varying degrees of arthritis. The research process includes both a quantitative and qualitative review that encompasses both the product and the packaging.
“We’re pleased to partner with such a respected authority on arthritis," said Ivan E. Brown, CEO of the company. "We believe the collaboration with the Arthritis Foundation will allow us to expose more patients to our products. Improving life is our passion, and this alliance strengthens our ability to realize that mission.”
