clinically beneficial but also making their lives more enjoyable and fun at the same time. Mike Sheen, General
Manager for RGK, who has been involved in the acquisition said: “Oracing is a well-established brand and a great
addition to our group. Together with our existing strong brands like RGK, Quickie and Empulse, we can offer the
most suitable products to satisfy a large variety of specific customer needs in these fast growing market segments”.
Felipe Garcia, the founder of Oracing said, “We are thrilled by this transaction. I have started Oracing to pursue my
dream to regain the freedom. We try to find the best solution to solve the daily mobility challenges for quadriplegic
people like me. The business has been developing well, and we are at the point to look at our next phase of growth.
Sunrise Medical is the ideal growth platform for us.”
Thomas Babacan, Group CEO at Sunrise Medical, commented: “Sports and E-Mobility are exciting yet still very
fragmented market spaces with great growth potential. Oracing complements and strengthens our portfolio. They
have achieved impressive growth with their expertise and passion; and we will further accelerate the growth
leveraging our breadth of industrial knowledge and global network. There are also good production, R&D and
process synergies. I am looking forward to further enhancing our offering to more satisfied customers. Oracing has a
strong and dedicated team of people headed up by an excellent management, who will continue to run the business
at their current site under the Oracing brand, along with the new support and resources we have at our disposal.”
