Community equipment services provider, Medequip, has opened a new mobility retail shop at its Ipswich depot.

The firm, which has around 19 depots and a significant e-commerce operation, has expanded its retail portfolio in an effort to provide self-funding customers with products otherwise not usually provided by community equipment services.

At its retail outlets it displays a range of daily living aids and also larger products such as rise and recline chairs and powered bath lifts alongside the rollators and other mobility aids.

The company says: “Our trusted assessors are on hand at all of our locations to guide customers through the equipment options that best suit their needs.

“Whether a customer just needs a Helping Hand reacher or a more complex equipment option, Medequip can offer the widest range of choice coupled with our expertise and experience to ensure each person’s individual needs are met.”

Medequip also operates two Independent Living Centres in Derby and the Semington. Both have been set up to allow clients to get personal assessments and advice before making purchases.

At Semington there is also a test track for mobility scooters and walking aids.

  1. Left it a bit late didn’t they – the contract is out for tender at the minute and they could well lose it. Why didn’t they open this years ago – a last ditch attempt at retaining the contract?

    Looks a bit like bolting the door after the horse has bolted to me…..

  2. Brilliant concept, well executed in getting the best products directly into the hands of the users. Try before you buy can’t beat it! Check out the muggi tray for safely carrying hot drinks either on a walking frame on a Buckingham Caddy, or if you are in a wheelchair or you just need the safest drinks tray in the world?
