Martha Trust is a wonderful charity providing respite and day care for those with profound physical and multiple learning difficulties. Their mission is to provide not only quality care but the opportunity for their residents to achieve their full potential and enjoy a stimulating and an active a life as possible.

We’ve worked continuously with Martha Trust over the years, supplying Ceiling Hoists and Assisted Baths to equip their state-of-the-art facilities. To allow the latest hydro and physiotherapies, and provide a secure and safe home for over 33 young people and adults, OpeMed has been assisting with projects at the purpose-built nursing care homes for over 8 years.

Designing Disabled Access to Swimming Pools

Posted on April 1, 2015

Working with Our Technical Team to Design Disabled Access Environments

In order to create desirable accessible environments, all technical experts should be consulted as early in the design process as possible to ensure a well considered space.

As part of our large portfolio of projects; OpeMed design, supply and build Swimming Pool disabled access environments for hoisting within changing rooms and into the Swimming Pool itself. Our clients are often installing into public Swimming Pools within Leisure Centres, into Rehabilitation Suites and Private Hydrotherapy Units for improved access and support for disabled users and their carers.

Paralympics: Changing Perceptions?

Posted on March 11, 2014

Will the recent success of the GB Super G Ski Gold from Kelly Gallagher help to raise awareness for Disability in sport and highlight her achievements as a beacon to follow?

In light of the successes achieved in the current Winter Olympics and Paralympics it is hoped that the desire to engage people with disabilities to inspire involvement in sports (extreme or not) will increase. We are proud to be associated with charities such as Mencap who are actively supporting disabled people in the community.

As seen in our recent Case Study we are now installing Ceiling Hoists into RDA Disabled Riding Clubs all over the UK proving where accessibility equipment can be surprisingly handy in sports!
