Gerald Simonds has been appointed as the exclusive UK and Ireland distributor for a new wheelchair cushion range developed by Ki Mobility and Leckey.
The dealer will be solely responsible for the sale and distribution of the Axiom seating line in the UK and Ireland although Leckey will still will offer the cushions as an option for its configured Ki Mobility wheelchairs.
Doug Robinson, managing director of Gerald Simonds, said that the Axiom range sits well within its product portfolio.
“At Gerald Simonds we believe in only partnering with manufacturers and distributors which share our ethos when it comes to providing high end quality products and after sales support and look forward to working with the team at Leckey.”
The cushions have been developed with the core design elements of directed loading and surface tension reduction through the use of pre-contoured shapes, high-end quality materials and superior cover design.
The design of the cushions incorporates materials in the foam and fluid components which are lightweight and non-temperature sensitive to ensure the cushions have a long-life span and is both comfortable and functional.
Tim Daniels, marketing director at Leckey, said: “Gerald Simonds Healthcare represent an excellent fit for Leckey, they are a long-standing business with established NHS wheelchair services and private customer relationships, plus a well-earned reputation for offering great quality products supported by a first-class specialist seating sales team and customer service.
“Lifelong partnerships are critical to Leckey, and choosing a distribution partner with the right credentials and shared values was foremost in our selection criteria so we are delighted to be partnering with Gerald Simonds.”
