Lifeward, the Marlborough-based manufacturer of mobility assistive devices formerly known as ReWalk Robotics, has named Mike Swinford to its board of directors. 

Swinford is the CEO of Numotion, a Tennessee-based wheelchair and mobility equipment company. Numotion has 150 storefronts in the country, including a location in Worcester.

His appointment expands the Lifeward board from six to seven members.

“As someone who is passionate about improving healthcare access and inclusion for people with disabilities, I am excited to join the board of directors of Lifeward,” Swinford said in a Friday press release from Lifeward announcing his appointment. “I look forward to bringing my knowledge of the industry and my experience with CMS coverage implementation to help Lifeward further its commercialization strategies for the benefit of the disabled community.”

Swinford has been the CEO of Numotion since July 2014. He is the president of the Numotion Foundation, a Tennessee-based nonprofit founded in 2018 working to enhance the lives of people with disabilities. 

Prior to his time at Numotion, Swinford worked for 22 years at GE Healthcare, serving as its president and CEO of global services from May 2011 to July 2014, according to his LinkedIn profile. 

ReWalk re-branded to Lifeward in January, following an August announcement about it acquiring AlterG, a California-based company specializing in physical and neurological rehabilitation.
