We've won an award!

Well it's always nice to feel appreciated and we feel especially proud to have been chosen as Sunrise Medical's Elite Dealer of the Year 2010.

We were presented with the award at a dinner and awards ceremony preceeding the launch of the Quickie Life Wheelchair and you can see Doug Robinson MD accepting the award here

Doug said it was a fabulous evening not just because of receiving the award but also to hear a very interesting and inspiring talk from the Paralympic Swimmer Sascha Kindred. I'll have to try and get a ticket for next year's dinner!

Welcome back Emily, we've missed you!

I’ve been working with Gerald Simonds stuff for some years now, amongst other things putting together Spokesman, our customer newsletter and looking after the website. When we took the FreeWheel out to get some photographs, I thought it was one of the niftiest accessories I’d seen in a long time. It basically turns your wheelchair into a three wheeler which can cope with most surfaces. It weighs under 5lb and clamps on to the footrest of pretty well all rigid frame manual chairs and lifts the front castors off the ground. We ran it over kerbs, grass and rough gravel and it coped admirably. We’ve put some videos on the Gerald Simonds website: Have a look and prepare to be amazed!
