About Us

OpeMed was established in 2008 with a clear mission to provide flexible moving and handling solutions to the healthcare market. In 2018 OpeMed became a division of the Dutch company – United Care, tapping into more than 25 years of global expertise and a wealth of medical equipment history.

Beyond that, OpeMed has had some key objectives; that our transfer solutions would be comfortable, safe and reliable, and that our equipment would allow carers to concentrate on giving personal care by providing space saving equipment that saves time, reduces risk of injury, and increases efficiency.

Our management team has an accumulative 40 years of patient handling knowledge, working closely alongside building contractors, architects, therapists and end-users.

We also pride ourselves on being at the fore-front of new ideas. Our R&D team, based in the Netherlands, pride themselves on regular interaction with experts in the field, so that our equipment is practical and up to date. All of our products are made in our state-of-the-art factories within the UK and Netherlands.
