TGA has named its most successful mobility dealer of the quarter as Ireland-based MMS Medical.
With outlets in Cork, Dublin, Galway and Northern Ireland, MMS Medical achieved the award through “exceptional sales” of TGA’s WHILL Model C powerchair – backed up by a continued customer-focused approach.
The WHILL Model C is a more affordable version of the WHILL powerchair, which is designed to be a modern product different to other items on the market.
TGA presents its top trade accolade every quarter to one of its dealers as official recognition of performance and quality service. MMS will also receive product discounts, premium champagne and free publicity from the supplier.
Gearoid O’Herlihy, managing director at MMS Medical, said the business is finding the market “very receptive” to the WHILL Model C because it “fills a niche between basic wheelchairs and sophisticated powerchairs”.
“Customers are continually giving us feedback that the WHILL Model C is a preferred solution as it does not resemble a medical product – important to our widening customer age bracket.
“Users from age 25-60+ are looking at the product, especially those who seek short term mobility assistance and are not full time wheelchair users.
“Individuals who cannot self-propel over larger distances and have some limited walking abilities are choosing the WHILL so they can conserve energy for more independent mobility at home. WHILL Model C provides a cool and stylish market alternative.”
MMS Medical has longstanding supply relationships with public and private hospitals, nursing homes, primary care centres and is an approved partner of the HSE in Ireland (Health Service Executive).
O’Herlihy added: “This trade award from TGA is also indicative of success as a whole across our business. We are one of the largest suppliers of mobility and rehabilitation products in Ireland and continue to focus on providing innovative solutions – strengthened by our family-run structure and considered assessment-led services.”
