Local Witney MP, Robert Courts, recently went along to the Recare showroom and workshop facilities in a visit that addressed the current scooter regulations and requirements.
He attended alongside Oxfordshire Fire Service chiefs.
The visit focused on making a plan to arrange a local training programme for clients to re-assess their use, safety, and understanding of the mobility product.
This came alongside fire safety regulation advice and advising on major aspects of the Highway Code to ensure they have an up to date advice.
The aim was to educate mobility product users on how to safely charge and maintain their products regularly, ensuring that they are authorised to store them within nursing and care facilities safely.
Recare detailed how it is in the process of mutually developing a pilot scheme between all three parties to ensure it can not only push this throughout Oxfordshire, but to advocate it’s advantages and develop it into a nationwide safety initiative.
The company went on to explain how Robert Courts MP and the fire service were fascinated by the products on show, including the demonstrated ReWalk suit and the Permobil F5 VS standing powerchair.
Courts was also keen to outline his appreciation for the ongoing development of Recare and the difference being made not only as a local mobility supplier, but its mark nationally within the Rehabilitation and Mobility industry.
The Recare facility has been an attractive facility for the local MP in recent years, former MP for Witney and former Prime Minister David Cameron met the team.
