In Memory of Brandon Edmondson

Published in Complex Rehab on Thursday, January 16, 2020

Husband, father, son, colleague and friend.  These are just a few words that describe the valued relationships of Brandon Edmondson. With extreme sympathies, our team is saddened to announce the passing of Brandon Edmondson. Many of you know him from his time with the Permobil family or as a leader in the CRT industry. We know him from many industry conferences, U.S. Rehab Tech Trainings and through our vendor partner, Permobil. No matter how you may have interacted with Brandon, you know that he had a kind soul and was a great source of energy.

“Brandon and I were friends and I respected him so much as a leader in the industry.  Brandon fought for each and every person who was unable to fight for themselves to receive the most appropriate medically necessary product and for that he will be missed.   He also was that friend everyone wanted and to be like.”

 – Greg Packer, President U.S. Rehab

“VGM and U.S. Rehab will greatly miss being able to work with Brandon. He was the kind of person that you always looked forward to seeing at the next industry event. He will be missed by everyone in the industry that worked with him. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his wife, kids, extended family as well as his Permobil family.”

 -Tyler Mahncke, Business Development Manager U.S. Rehab

On behalf of VGM and U.S. Rehab, we would like to thank Brandon for his time impacting our industry for the better and so many individuals on a personal level. He holds a legacy that will remain forever and will be deeply missed. To Brandon’s family and friends, please know our prayers and thoughts go out to you during this time.

As a memorial, the Permobil Foundation will be collecting funds to both honor Brandon and support the college funds of his children. Permobil has graciously decided to match donations received.  Please lift his memory up with us by donating here. Thank you and deepest condolences to all who loved Brandon.
