DENVER, CO (May 15): Revolar, maker of the world’s most advanced personal safety devices proudly announces a partnership with The Davis Phinney Foundation, an organization that assists people living with Parkinson’s Disease. Every person purchasing a Revolar product through the Davis Phinney Foundation will receive special discounted pricing and Revolar will make a donation to the Foundation.
“The entire team at the Davis Phinney Foundation is truly amazing,” said Revolar CEO, Steve Bachar, "We know our devices can assist people living with Parkinson’s to be more independent and give them and loved ones more peace of mind as they lead active lives.”
The Davis Phinney Foundation helps people with Parkinson’s live well today. The foundation provides tools, resources, and information that help improve the quality of life for people affected by Parkinson’s. Founded in 2004 by champion cyclist Davis Phinney, who was diagnosed with young onset Parkinson's in 2000, the Foundation funds early-phase, research focusing on exercise, speech, movement and other factors affecting quality of life.
“For many people with Parkinson’s, being able to quickly and easily check-in with care partners and family, as well as have the peace of mind knowing that they can quickly notify someone if they need help, is really important,” said Chris Brewer, Director of Development at The Davis Phinney Foundation. “A personal safety device like Revolar can help people with Parkinson’s maintain their independence while having help just a click of a button away.”
Edith Anderson, an Ambassador for the Foundation and a person with Parkinson’s stated, “I like the check-in feature of Revolar. This feature will help people with Parkinson’s remain independent longer. They can send alerts to a contact to let them know they are okay, if they need assistance, and even to let others know when they have taken their medications.”
