Medical firm is fit for the Olympics

PHYSIOTHERAPY couches and wheelchairs supplied by a Debenham firm will be wheeling their way around from London 2012 Olympics in the coming weeks.

Medical equipment firm Seers Medical, based Kenton Road, won a ‘substantial’ part of a contract to supply various items, which also included mobile ward screens, pharmacy fridges, electric profiling beds and patient transport trolley.

The firm, which was set up four years ago and employs about 25 staff, makes examination couches but also supplies a range of medical items.

Sales and marketing director Keith Chittock said they saw an opportunity to tender and decided to give it a go.

The items, which have been rented to the Games organisers, have now been delivered amid tight security.

“There are 34 separate sties involved in staging the Games, all of which area supported by Medical Equipment, with more than a littel of it coming from Seers Medical Equipment,” he said.

“We can fully vouch for the very high level of organisation and control in place regarding deliveries, particularly to the Olympic village itself.”
