Established in 2007 as the region's premier venue for recognizing excellence in the business of healthcare, the fifth annual MediStar Awards presented eight awards to the "best of the best" in our region's healthcare community during its Gala on March 29, 2011. The Innovation Award is presented to an individual or organization that has positively impacted healthcare delivery costs through the development, design or implementation of new technology.

The Louisville-based company produces and distributes a revolutionary line of colorful, durable, plastic manual wheelchairs that are easy to fold, easy to transport and easy to clean which it markets to the healthcare and recreational markets. Merlexi Craft offers the next generation of wheelchair technology from traditional metal, tubular construction.

Ergonomically designed for both user and caregiver comfort and safety, the Merlexi Craft™ wheelchair's lightweight plastic construction is the perfect weather-resistant solution for amusement parks and attractions. Rain and humidity are no longer a problem nor is there any need to dry the wheelchair to prevent rust. Merlexi Craft™ wheelchairs come in a variety of bright colors and can be customized based on an organization's preferences to enhance branding and corporate identity. Every Merlexi Craft™ wheelchair also is built to last, having been tested at the University of Pittsburgh to the equivalent of over 30 years of wear, providing significant return-on-investment for any company or organization.
