Living independently with support from live in carers, meet 32-year-old Luke, who is wheelchair dependent due to cerebral palsy.

Recently Luke contacted us about our Ardoo portable travel hoist, as he was planning a short break family holiday and his usual hoist was too large. The key requirements were to rent a small portable hoist that could fit in a car, and be able to lift and move Luke in the confined space of a caravan.

ramping solutions

Flip Out Bristol, managed by Daniel Antoniou and his team, is a family-oriented franchise of the UK’s leading trampoline operator, Flip Out. Opened in January 2016, the Bristol venue is popular with children, teenagers, parents and grand-parents, who love to bounce for fun and fitness.

Bristol based personal trainer and running coach for women over 40, Lesley Waldron, kindly road tested one of our Pebbell GPS SOS Tracker devices,across fields and down lanes, during summer 2017.

What was your first impression of the Pebbell?

I really liked the size and the shape and it felt quite tactile, even though this is something that is used as a functional piece of kit. It’s quite attractive which gives it a ‘fashionable WOW’ touch. I was curious about how it worked and the functions of little buttons on the side.
