The Research Team at Richmar is dedicated to delivering well-informed, high-quality education backed by research from which practitioners and patients alike can benefit and enjoy.
Richmar has been a partner to clinicians since it was founded under the name Medco in 1951. This modest operation located near Tulsa, OK was responsible for such therapeutic advancements as the first combination stim and ultrasound machine, as well as being the first to incorporate a touch screen into an electrotherapy device. After a move to Chattanooga, TN in 2007, the legacy of innovation continued with the creation of the Winner EVO, capable of providing up to seven independent therapies at once; and HydraTherm, the award-winning moist heat therapy heater with a rust-less, composite plastic tank.
Now part of Compass Health Brands, Richmar continues under the leadership of its Therapy Business Unit in Saint Louis, MO, continuing a heritage of more than 65 years in US-based manufacturing, customer service, and technical support.
