    Company founded

    We started off as Lanapelle Australia in September 1999 and were responsible for the creation, production and manufacture of the very popular Shear Comfort (Australian Medical Sheepskin) range of products. As a result of the Shear Comfort Range, we started working with the distributors of healthcare products both here in Australia and internationally.

    BES Parternship

    One of our international customers was BES Rehab now BES Healthcare and as a result of this relationship, in March 2008 BES set up a joint venture business in Adelaide and Healthcare Innovations Australia (HIA) was born.

    Shear takeover

    In July 2009 HIA took over Shear Comfort and then added the Varilite range of wheelchair seating products and BodiTrak Pressure Mapping systems to their range. We have continued to add assistive technology products to our range, to name a few – TARTA wheelchair back supports, Leggero Strollers, the Breezi Paediatric Seating systems and the JonVac Seating range.
