Supporting Autism Research through Els for Autism

Three years ago, ADC expanded our “Cuffs for a Cause” campaign to include a puzzle piece design, the globally recognized symbol of autism awareness. Since that time, we’ve donated several thousand dollars to Els for Austim and their Florida-based Els Center for Excellence. Read more about their upcoming Autism Innovations & Global Impact Conference: The State of the Science.

The ADC Website Goes Mobile

An ADC team, including our entire marketing, creative, and IT departments, spent the better part of 2016 redesigning our website to make it “mobile,” as the IT folks like to say. With a third of our web traffic now coming from mobile devices, we needed a platform that was small-screen and touch friendly.

Out with the Old: Our Transition to Phthalate Alternatives

More than a decade ago the Food and Drug Administration and Centers for Disease Control began studying phthalates, a group of chemicals used as binding agents and to make plastics more flexible. Though neither has yet issued new regulations for the medical device industry, ADC has been moving to alternative ingredients, opting to stay ahead of the issue.

The Other Special Cause We Observe in October

If you’ve been on ADC’s Facebook page in the past few weeks you know how committed we are to supporting Breast Cancer Awareness month. It’s an important cause and we’re proud to contribute. But there’s a second outstanding cause celebrated in October – one that’s far less well known but just as important: National Disabilities Employment Awareness Month.

Learning from Our Customers

Customer feedback, positive or negative, whether from a reseller of our products or a consumer, has truly helped make ADC a better company. And though we all love when a customer heaps praise on our products or services, it is the criticisms that drive change in a company responsive to its customers’ needs. We learn something new every day.

Two New Ways to Shop Smarter

At ADC, our commitment to feature-rich products isn’t just about what we sell, it also defines our approach to service and support. That’s why we’re always working to improve the ADC experience – before, during, and after your purchase. To that end, we’ve launched two new features on our website that we think you’ll find helpful: MSRP pricing and expanded design themes.

A Cup of Tea (or Three) a Day, Keeps Hypertension Away

Two recent meta-analysis studies, one in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology and one in the International Journal of Cardiology, examined the correlation between green and black tea consumption and lower blood pressure values, finding not just a strong association but suggesting that higher consumption levels produced increasingly greater health benefits.

Importing Is Easy. Importing Quality Is Difficult

ADC has been globally sourcing the world’s finest medical device components for more than 30 years. When we started there was something of a mystique to importing. It was a big scary world and few understood how to import or had the skills necessary to successfully traverse the globe. In the ensuing decades, a lot has changed, and there are good and bad sides to these megatrends.

The Other Special Cause Observed in October

We recently blogged about Breast Cancer Awareness Month, perhaps the best known health-related cause celebrated each year. But there’s a second outstanding cause in October – one far less well known, but just as important: National Disabilities Employment Awareness Month. Our participation in this cause is much more personal and began more than a quarter century ago.
