ELYRIA, Ohio--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Invacare Corporation (NYSE: IVC) is proud to support veterans across the United States as a National Host Sponsor of the 37th Annual National Veterans Wheelchair Games (NVWG). Invacare has supported the NVWG since its inception 37 years ago. The NVWG will run in Cincinnati, Ohio from July 17-22 and feature a multitude of sporting events including basketball, handcycling, track, and table tennis.

“The pure talent, tenacity and devotion to the sport demonstrated by these veteran athletes makes us honored to continue to show our support for our veterans at the National Veterans Wheelchair Games,” said Dean Childers, senior vice president and general manager, Invacare North America.

Invacare associates started the week on Sunday, when they met athletes at the airport to help ensure the wheelchairs of veterans’ flying in for the games were unloaded and reassembled properly. To help ensure that veterans can focus on their events and perform at their best, Invacare will offer wheelchair repair and tune ups throughout the week to help repair or replace anything that may have been bumped out of place during travel, warm up, or competition.

Invacare will have several innovative products on display during the NVWG’s expo day, such as new küschall® custom manual wheelchairs, Invacare® Top End® sports and recreation products, and Invacare® power wheelchairs, including the new Invacare® TDX® SP2 power wheelchair with LiNX® technology set to launch in the third quarter 2017.
