Drive Medical Partners with Marketing Architects to Launch HurryRoll® on TV

June 12, 2018

MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jun 12, 2018--When the HurryCane® launched on TV in 2011, it rapidly became the #1 selling cane in America and the brand that stands alone in the category. Drive DeVilbiss Healthcare, the medical product company that acquired the HurryCane® in 2015, has taken the brand to the next level of mobility. Partnering with Marketing Architects, the Minneapolis-based advertising agency that marketed the HurryCane®, they’ve just launched the HurryRoll ®, a new rollator, on TV with an ad campaign called “ Ready. Set. Roll! ”

The TV commercial, “Hard to Move,” shows a couple enjoying life on the go thanks to the HurryRoll ®. We see it effortlessly glide past an old-fashioned walker, demonstrating how the HurryRoll ® goes anywhere with ease. In addition, it brings along a world of conveniences: a lightweight folding frame, quick-locking brakes, a comfortable seat and even a cup holder.

“The Hurry brand has always defied any stigma associated with mobility issues,” said Kirsten Newquist, VP of Channel Development at Drive DeVilbiss Healthcare. “We create products that don’t just increase mobility. They help protect a person’s dignity.”

Even after selling the HurryCane®, Marketing Architects continues as the advertising partner for the brand. In collaboration with Drive DeVilbiss Healthcare, they crafted the campaign strategy then wrote, directed and produced the TV commercial.

“It’s an honor to be able to help Drive take the Hurry brand to the next level,” said Rob DeMars, Chief Creative Officer at Marketing Architects. “Mobility with dignity is a story we’re proud to tell.”
