Size is important in many respects. Whether thinking about shoes, clothes or cars: size determines your personal well-being. This of course also applies to rehab equipment.

If you are looking for optimal solutions for bariatric patients you must consider customised aids.

Customization of heavy duty equipment is the key for highest customer satisfaction. Rehab equipment from the shelf will not deliver this level of satisfaction particularly for patients with extreme overweight and obesity.

Many rehab dealers still find it difficult to provide good solutions especially for this (growing) group of patients. Simple because these cases are not their daily business.

Our manufacturer specializes in the manufacture of custom made heavy duty wheelchairs, shower commodes and rollators. 

All bariatric custom made aids are manufactured within the European Union.

Highliy qualified and experienced staff assemble the products by hand. Modern machines are used for welding, bending and powder coating. 

All done to satisfy you and your customer. We can deliver most products to the UK within 15 working days.

Additional options: 

Enhanced Warranty Package: £125.00 including VAT

Considering buying an electric wheelchair, mobility scooter, electric rise and recline chair, bath lift, hoist  or electric profiling beds? 

As manufacturers’ warranties do not in general include callouts and labour, we highly recommend our  “12 Months Enhanced Warranty Support "  which covers the cost of call outs and labour to diagnose faults and fit warranty parts for up to 3 call outs in year one. 

Should your product develop a fault we will always try to diagnose the problem by telephone to provide the quickest solution.   

If you opt in to the enhanced warranty support we will appoint a competent person to call out and fit parts under warranty and there would be no charge incurred for the call out and labour. 

If you don’t opt in to this service, we can either despatch the parts via courier for you to appoint your own fitter or we would offer to arrange a chargeable call out for an engineer to visit.   

This enhanced warranty option doesn’t cover the cost of call outs and labour to repair or fit parts not covered under warranty due to damage or customer misuse.   In the event of non warranty parts requirements labour and call outs are chargeable at the standard rate.

Installation and Plumbing

Some of our products will require installation by a qualified person such as a plumber, electrician or engineer. This includes the installation of Stairlifts, overhead track hoists, Biobidet toilet washers, level access shower trays and our range of bath tubs. Please contact us if you require this service as this is not included in any of the above options.
