Our history More than 25 years of development

Our history

Human Care began with a simple idea – develop mobility and patient handling solutions that will improve the freedom of movement and quality of care for people worldwide. Founded in 1993, Human Care has evolved throughout the years through acquisitions and ambitious and innovative product development. With headquarters in Sweden and offices in the United States, Canada, Germany, the Netherlands, and Turkey and distribution in more than thirty-five countries, Human Care has become a driving force in the medical industry. Our Swedish roots ensure that our focus is pure – continuous innovation, outstanding quality, and usability in all our products.

Today Human Care provides walking aids, safe patient handling products, and healthcare beds with the mission to improve freedom of movement and quality of care. Our primary customers are healthcare providers within home care and institutional care, as well as end-users. A large number of our customers are also distributors serving these groups. With our many outstanding partners throughout the world, we offer solutions to anyone who may need a little help and those who need to provide just that help.

The future holds even greater things for Human Care as we continue to innovate the way the world thinks about the quality of care. Our focus is simple – we work for our users. We will continue developing and providing exceptional products that become a natural part of life for anyone who might need them.

2021 Human Care Group acquired the Turkish company Kenmak that expanded our Healthcare Beds portfolio and added Furniture and Medical Equipment to our product areas. The same year we also acquired the German company Petermann, which added the product area Manual Transfer.
