Providers voted for their favorite new items at the show in Dallas.

DALLAS—A brightly colored collection of cloth walker covers took the top award at Medtrade's New Product Pavilion on March 28. 

The Provider's Choice Gold Award went to the Jover Walker Cover by Jover, a new entry into the market. The owners said they developed the cheerful walker accessory to convince senior family members to use their walkers more regularly, and the idea caught on. 

The Provider's Choice Silver Award went to Elsa, an artificial intelligence (AI) operation created by Celerity's AI. The program sits atop other billing and operations software to help home medical equipment providers save time working out insurance details and avoid unnecessary denials. 

The Provider's Choice Bronze Award went to Tranquility Incontinence Products, which launched a refreshed version of it's Tranquility Premium OverNight and Premium DayTime Underwear entirely in breathable fabric to wick moisture and decrease skin issues. The lines are also in redesigned packaging and some products have introduced additional sizes up to 3x. 

The New Product Pavilion, which is sponsored by HomeCare Media, features new home medical equipment and allows attendees of the show to vote on their favorites.
