Wheelfreedom supports staff and industry development

Wheelfreedom has had a busy few months investing in staff training and promoting its mobility technology at home and abroad.

The company hosted a course with Jane Pratley from the Posture Partnership at its Chessington HQ, providing the team with insight on the Goldsmiths Body Asymmetry measurement. Staff also enjoyed a social media workshop with the team at Strategy Plus, on topics ranging from mastering engagement strategies to crafting compelling content.

The company – one of the UK’s leading mobility specialists – exhibited at the Occupational Therapy Adaptation Conference and Exhibition, for professionals involved in home adaptations, on 29 November at the Hilton in Watford.

And in October, the team went to Dubai for the AccessAbilities Expo. Managing Director Giles Donald, spoke on a highlights video.

He said: “This event, for us, has been really important. We’re bringing the latest technologies from London and from Europe to the market here. It’s really important that people get access to the right equipment and this type of event is there to promote that.”

Mr Donald noted that there was a real backing from the United Arab Emirates’ Government to ensure people had access to the appropriate mobility technology, adding: “This is the way the world needs to be moving and as a country [the UAE] is really making huge leaps and steps in being a pioneer in that globally, which is really exciting to see.”
