Altimate Medical, Inc. has acquired Activeaid, Inc., as of May 1, 2018.

Altimate Medical and Activeaid have shared synergies in the marketplace, and both product portfolios complement and strengthen each other. Altimate Medical intends to continue operating the Activeaid business as an independent company.

According to Kyle Smith, Altimate Medical marketing manager, Activeaid will remain at its current facilities in Redwood Falls, and operations will continue at the existing locations. Smith added the workforce will largely remain the same.

In fact, plans are to expand soon with the addition of a new general manager and a quality management individual.

Activeaid, Inc., a Minnesota-based manufacturer of quality medical equipment since 1965, specializes in the rehabilitation field. The diverse product lines, proudly made in the USA, address a range of uses from daily care assistance in the home environment, to products designed for the hospital and the institutional market.

As a result of the acquisition, Todd Tholkes, president and CEO of Altimate Medical will assume leadership of Activeaid.

“Activeaid has been a strategic partner to Altimate Medical for 30-plus years, and we look forward to leveraging some of Altimate Medical’s strengths to sustain and help grow the Activeaid business. We would like to thank each of the team members of Activeaid for their contributions toward its mission over the last 50-plus years, and we look forward to an exciting future together,” said Tholkes. 

Altimate Medical, Inc. is a Morton, Minnesota-based manufacturer best known for its EasyStand brand of standing devices.

Since 1987, Altimate Medical and its EasyStand brand has lead the standing industry by creating unsurpassed standing technology for those with disabilities. Altimate Medical strives to improve the quality of life for its customers worldwide.

Tom Prentice, board chair of Altimate Medical Holdings is currently overseeing the transition and will lead the search for a new general manager at Activeaid.
