Since being established in1983 as a distributor of high quality wheelchairs, Gerald Simonds has become a pioneer in the field of lightweight manual, powered and standing wheelchairs and seating systems.
Gerald Simonds was the UK distributor of the original Swede 24 wheelchair, one of the first lightweight rigid framed wheelchairs in production. Finding ready acceptance of the new generation of manual wheelchairs, the company grew to its present position as leading UK supplier of high quality wheelchairs. Our range has also grown to include a wide range of pressure relieving and positioning wheelchair cushions and mattresses.
From the outset the company had a growing interest in how the application of new materials and techniques could best serve the needs of disabled people, an interest reinforced by the design of new lightweight wheelchairs which provided greater independence and quality of life for the user. The growth of sports therapy programmes improved the physical function of disabled people and empowered many individuals who wanted to achieve more. This increased the demand for 'performance' wheelchairs made of new materials such as aluminium, titanium and composites.
The Gerald Simonds range now includes wheelchairs, powerchairs, powerdrives, seating and pressure area care products and walking aids. Our added value service begins with impartial advice on the right solution for individual needs, backed by expert assessments and no-obligation demonstrations. We then provide long term after sale and customer support.
