Coupled with a dedicated testing facility, RMS is able to test products and technology in a simulated environment as well as in a controlled setting.

The Rubbermaid Medial Solutions testing facility provides employees with the capability to test all aspects of a product before it is released to the marketplace.

With the launch of the new Innovation Center, RMS draws focus to the history of the healthcare marketplace and the products that were developed for release during that time, showing how size, features and models have evolved over the years to accommodate medical needs. An additional feature allows end users to interact with products and observe their progression from ideation to production.
