Improving Lives

We provide safe patient moving and handling equipment for users whom are often amongst the most vulnerable, less-mobile members of our communities.
We are highly apt at solving complex moving and handling issues and, for over 30 years, we have developed and manufactured market-leading and innovative solutions. Through our diverse product ranges and our service excellence, we are committed to making a positive difference to people’s lives. 


British-made moving & handling solutions

For your complex moving and handling situations, we have multiple solutions.  With a diverse range of high quality sling and bathing equipment, we provide standard stock lines as well as off-contract Specials tailored to individual needs.

The Choice of Specialists

Who We Work With

We work closely with leading healthcare practioners and clinicians, moving and handling specialists, carers and the end user to develop product solutions that not just work but are at the forefront of design and comfort.

For the past 30 years we have continued to repeatedly be the preferred supplier of choice for the NHS, Social Services, Care Homes, Community Equipment Stores and Occupational Therapists.
