The figures above really put into perspective just how important it is to have products available to make sure people’s standard of living is improved. We have 15 years of experience and pride ourselves in being equipment specialists, helping a wide spectrum of disabilities. From our knowledge we have created a wide variety of products which are adaptable and reusable. Wealden Rehab have also been at the forefront of the Changing Places movement and approach each installation with budget, design and timescale in mind.

We will continue to adapt and refine our products, research new available technologies to make sure we always provide the most suitable solutions with the client’s dignity and well-being as our top priorities.
