About Richmar

Over 65 years of innovation and quality


Richmar has been a partner to clinicians since it was founded under the name Medco in 1951. This modest operation located near Tulsa, OK was responsible for such therapeutic advancements as the first combination stim and ultrasound machine, as well as being the first to incorporate a touch screen into an electrotherapy device. After a move to Chattanooga, TN in 2007, the legacy of innovation continued with the creation of the Winner EVO, capable of providing up to seven independent therapies at once; and HydraTherm, the award-winning moist heat therapy heater with a rust-less, composite plastic tank.

Now part of Compass Health Brands, Richmar’s manufacturing operations remain in Chattanooga, TN, creating a diverse offering of clinical devices and consumables to continue a heritage of more than 65 years in US-based manufacturing, customer service, and technical support.
