Ableworld Specialist Division Branches Out

This entry was posted in General February 15, 2019

Back in 2007 Ableworld set up the company’s Specialist Division, working hard to build up contacts, raise awareness and develop the necessary trust and reputation for professionals to refer cases to Ableworld. Today, our Ableworld Specialist Division operates from two centres, one in Hanley and a new larger premises in Crewe covering the Cheshire, North Wales, the Wirral and Shropshire areas. 

Our Specialist division provides bespoke mobility equipment for adults and children and are all highly trained. We provide a one to one service either in store or at the comfort of the customers own home and handle everything from assessment to handover, giving a personal service, training and advice. Through the years of experience, our Specialist Advisers have earned a deep level of trust from clients, their families and health care professionals. At Ableworld we are dedicated to helping people and use all major distributors of mobility equipment, to give as much choice as possible.

At Ableworld we are fully supportive of Franchise and Joint Venture stores that have decided to take on Specialist Training.  These include Franchisee, Donna Wilson from our Lincoln and Newark stores who has undertaken over 2 years of training with the Sunrise Medical steps training programme.  Courses involved seating and positioning, specialist Powerchair assessment and prescription and active user wheelchair assessment and prescription.  She is also looking to work with other suppliers.

Also enhancing the Ableworld Specialist Division is Mobility GB Director Barry Pearson. He entered into a joint venture with Ableworld in 2014 and during that time has launched five stores.  Barry has recently employed a fully qualified Occupational Therapist to expand the operation across the North West liaising with local professionals and carrying out formal assessments. Barry commented ‘The appointment of our own local Occupational Therapist is a key part of our strategy to ensure our customer service remains marketing leading and provides a vital link between the professional medical network and the retail sector’.
