About Mobility UK Scooters & Power Chairs

Mobility UK has its roots from way back in 1994. After a road accident left me paraplegic with C4 to C7 damage and graced with a prognosis of maybe never walking again. Faced with changing career from an internationally traveled consulting scientist, in 1997 having regained limited upper body movement, I turned to the Internet and started work on a disability site to help others and give myself a reason and goal. It was a steep learning curve to learn html, coding and general web design, but the scientific background gave advantage. That site grew and preoccupied me for many years, becoming a resource used by millions. During that time I made some really fantastic friends in the disability field.
By 2003, much to physicians dismay, I had managed to push myself to regain some mobility, though still reliant upon my electric wheelchair most of the time and the support of home carers.
By 2008 I had become fully conversant with the Internet and regained greater mobility, though all movements and travel had to be carefully planned. The following years were spent helping my son who also had special needs and progressing knowledge of web designing and all things Internet.

But I remembered the difficulties of daily life with severe mobility and finding equipment, gadgets or modifications to assist those with disabilities back then. Particularly powered wheelchairs which were quite limited in their range and ability to provide adequate support. But technology has advanced tremendously since then and now there are so many choices that it can be quite daunting and downright confusing to chose the right solution. And prices vary dramatically, often for the same equipment but in a different package.
So the idea was born to build a site where all the different types of scooters and wheelchairs in the UK could be listed that cover just about every conceivable need. A site where images, prices and technical specs were all laid out and links to the supplier so visitors can make an informed choice based upon their individual needs and pocket.

Mobility UK has now grown into an online superstore featuring not just powered wheelchairs and mobility scooters, but hundreds of other items of great importance and use to those with disabilities or mobility problems. From things like back and body supports, medical accessories, special beds, riser chairs to even simple gadgets to assist and enhance daily living. Along with useful articles relating to disability in general and health related advice.

I hope you enjoy your visit and do come back soon as new items and articles are constantly added.
