The World Health Organisation (WHO) defines Assistive products as those that “…maintain and improve an individual’s functioning and independence, thereby promoting their well-being”. They also note that “…globally, more than 1 billion people need 1 or more assistive products” and that is rising due to a healthier ageing population. Despite this, “…only 1 in 10 people in need have access to assistive products” usually down to a long list of socio-economic factors and the lack of available products for specific needs. †
We take immense pride in our desire to use our abilities to help those less fortunate than ourselves and who need a little extra help to achieve the things the rest of us take for granted. Our mission is to provide those people with that help, and in turn, empower them to get the most from life.
As the world of technology advances, so does the available opportunities for fun and independence, with a wider range of devices and appliances. What we aim to achieve is equality for those people who are less able-bodied, to be able to gain at least some of that fun and independence. We do this by continually innovating our assistive products and technology, listening to our market for what adaptations users need; all whilst developing and manufacturing our products in-house.
