Transforming Lives By Helping Others

NOVA founder and CEO Sue Chen is a passionate advocate for individuals with physical or mobility challenges and their caregivers and loved ones. 

Sue’s father, a rehabilitation doctor at the V.A. Rehab Center and then in Hollywood, FL., started NOVA manufacturing in Taiwan because he couldn’t find the right assistive products for his patients. His mission was cut short when he passed in 1984. Sue chose to honor his legacy by starting NOVA in the U.S. and growing the company organically and on her own terms. 

With NOVA’s unique line of fashionable and functional Home Medical Equipment, Sue and her team assist millions as they rediscover independence, positivity and empowerment.

“I love sharing the solutions, comfort, hope, and joy that our products deliver. It’s the best and most important part of my job.”

– Sue Chen, NOVA CEO
