Main Document

Quote: "It speaks honestly to the viewer and offers an intimate and personal look at real life in a mobility chair."

Hoveround Corporation, the nation's largest direct-to-consumer power wheelchair manufacturer, used the summer of 2011 to seize on an opportunity to tour across America for the very first time and meet actual Hoveround power chair owners.

Tom Kruse, inventor and president of the "Round for a Reason" power chair company, rode along on the red-white-and-blue Hoveround America bus with a team of Hoveround staffers to capture the compelling stories of four unique Hoveround owners.

That experience formed the basis for Hoveround's newest venture into infomercials, and the first-ever half-hour advertisement from a home medical equipment supplier.

Hoveround America is a different kind of infomercial.

It speaks honestly to the viewer and offers an intimate and personal look at real life in a mobility chair.

The people highlighted in this thirty-minute TV spot have stories to tell about surviving the loss of physical mobility through faith, family, and fearless determination to live full lives in spite of their physical challenges.

Tom Kruse, speaking about the commercial, says he is hopeful "that the amazing stories in this commercial will inform more mobility-restricted people about the real difference renewed mobility could make in their lives."

In the power mobility business for almost twenty years, Hoveround continues to be the only power wheelchair company that does it all.

Of course, restrictions apply, but, as Tom Kruse has said, "No one will work harder, on behalf of people with physical disabilities that interfere with their daily activities, and make sure they can maintain their independence and stay in their own home, than the people at Hoveround."
