portable hoist

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.

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.

“Birthday party packages for children and adults are a big hit here,” explains Daniel.

Access to Bounce

“For one of our party bookings, we were asked about access to the trampoline arena for a disabled girl, so that she could join in her friend’s birthday celebration.

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.

When it comes to customer service, nothing beats a personal approach according to the team at TVM Bristol & Cheltenham.

It’s the philosophy that has driven the growth of the independent mobility specialist which was founded in 2000 by Kevin O’Leary.

The company has developed a solid business covering Gloucestershire, Bristol and the surrounding areas. Apart from a full range of mobility equipment, the company also supplies automated equipment for doors, windows, curtains and blinds.

On leaving school, Kevin became an apprentice engineer for British Rail, before moving into the mobility sector with Wessex Medical (now Wessex Lifts). It was here, he says, he learnt that good customer service delivered through clear communication and a personal touch was paramount and according to Kevin, these are the values which run through TVM today.
