Wheelchair equipment specialist Loopwheels has expanded its sales and marketing capabilities after appointing a new director last week.
Ian Abbott is the company’s new sales and marketing director after having worked in sales and marketing at Boots The Chemist for more than 20 years.
Co-founder Gemma Pearce said that Abbott will be in touch with UK customers early in the New Year.
Loopwheels is a start-up company which has a patent pending on its wheelchair solution. A Loopwheel is a wheel with integral suspension, designed to reduce vibration and increase performance and provide greater comfort.
Loopwheels claims to be more comfortable than standard wheels. The carbon springs absorb tiring vibration, as well as bumps and shocks. They’re designed for everyday use and are strong and durable.
They were invented and developed by Sam Pearce at his home in Nottinghamshire. By training and profession, Pearce is a mechanical engineer and industrial designer.
He worked with a small local company, KG Archery, manufacturers of archery bows, on the development of the springs for Loopwheels.
