SportsMed Products Ltd

Dedicated to getting people moving, no matter age or ability.

UK guidelines recommend over 65s strength train at least twice a week. Sadly, most gym equipment is not suitable for the active ageing population. It is therefore not surprising that half those over 80 fall each year and it is now the most common cause of injury related deaths in over 75s with a 70% increase since 2010. Now is the time to implement a comprehensive falls prevention program and keep residents healthy!

We are the UK exclusive distributors for HUR’s active ageing range. Through pneumatic air pressure technology, the machines remove the “clunky” weight stack movement ensuring a smooth and controlled workout that's safe & joint-friendly. Starting at almost zero weight, and small increments of 100g, improvements can be seen. Range limiters ensure resident safety.

HUR also provide a cognitive balance training platform, a perfect tool for dementia!

We work with various retirement living and care home architects, designers and operators whether you need small exercise accessories or a full design and refurbishment including suitable strength and cardio equipment to suit your needs.

The Care Workers' Charity

The Care Workers’ Charity was first set up to help the UK’s almost 2 million care workers to get through financial crises. We provide crisis grants to care workers, signpost them to support services and work to raise the profile of their vital work.
We know this changes lives – every month the people we help tell us how a CWC grant has enabled them to face the future with renewed hope.
While financial help can be all that is needed in some cases, we also recognise that many issues faced by individuals working in care cannot be fixed by grants alone. We are working with care workers and care providers to tackle these issues, creating the support structures that people need whilst actively promoting the immense contribution that care workers make to our society.
