American Disabilities Corporation (ADC) has reorganized under new ownership and will continue to operate from the firm’s headquarters at 812 State Road in Princeton. The two-year-old medical supply company recently was purchased by president Neil C. Tucker, M.Ed, and his parents, Edwin W. and Beverly A. Tucker of Pennington.
“American Disabilities Corporation carries medical products and supplies for disabled seniors and their caregivers,” explains Neil Tucker. The then start-up company was approved by the Small Business Administration and began operations in Trenton in 2006. The company moved to Princeton in 2007 and the Tucker family took control a few months ago.
Neil Tucker recognized that his parents were part of a large aging population and he saw a need for innovative and useful medical products and caregiver services to be brought into the market to serve this burgeoning population.
The firm focuses on compression therapy and wound care products offering personalized service for both patients and the medical practitioners who serve them. But, as Neil Tucker points out, “We keep an eye out for innovative products that enhance the comfort of daily living.”
Two such products are Circaid medical grade compression garments that provide ease of application with standard and custom solutions. Tranquility incontinence products provide products for personal care that eliminate odor and reduce frequency of changes.
“What makes ADC different from a typical surgical supply company is that we are proactive,” Tucker explains. “We go to doctors’ offices, wound care centers, and assisted living facilities to demonstrate our products and services and consult with patients and clinicians about resources that are available,” he continued.
ADC is redesigning the business website for e-commerce and has rolled out an additional website dedicated to caregivers, www.caregivers-oasis.com. The new website is a portal for caregivers family members, and clinicians providing information on stress management and self help. Our theory is that you can only help other people if you can help yourself,” Tucker says.
Neil Tucker, who is the managing partner, expects a large market for the firm’s products. “There are 50 million disabled persons plus the rising tide of baby boomers and an increasing senior market. Although the company has a strong base in Mercer County we expect to soon expand into Somerset, Middlesex, and Ocean Counties. Our ultimate goal is to have customers and name recognition statewide,” Tucker says.
Neil Tucker has a bachelors degree in health education and a masters degree in education from the College of New Jersey. Tucker is a well-known speaker
