Customer Questions
What are your delivery lead times?
It depends on the product you order. A simple order such as RMS accessories are held in stock and can be dispatched quite quickly, usually within 5 working days - if it is a bespoke item such as a seating system, or items ordered from external suppliers, this may take between 2 and 12 weeks. We will contact you once your order is placed to give you a more accurate lead time.
What is a prescriptive item?
This is an item that is made unique to each users needs. Although all our products - including prescriptive ones - can be purchased on the website, we highly recommend that those marked as prescriptive items (in our Product Builder) have an assessment carried out by one of our product specialists. We cannot accept any returns for items ordered in the wrong size or that are incompatible with the end user.
Can I return an item?
Unfortunately not. A lot of our products are made to measure meaning they are unique to each person and therefore can’t be returned. If you have a product you believe can be returned we may accept it if it is unopened and unused - call 01795 477280 to talk to us.
Can I change an order I’ve already placed?
You can, but it may result in extra charges and delays. Once we have started manufacturing a product it becomes hard to change that process, especially if some components need to be replaced. We ask that everyone checks their order thoroughly before purchase.
Am I VAT Exempt?
If you are registered disabled - or are the carer, parent or guardian of someone who is registered disabled you will be exempt from paying VAT. If you are a registered charity with a UK charity registration number you will also not have to pay VAT. There is a simple form to fill out at checkout to apply this discount.
How do I apply for a trade account?
You can apply for a trade account by filling out this form on the website. You can also look at our interactive map on our contact us page and get in contact with your local Product Specialist to see if you would be eligible for a trade account.

The LifeGlider is designed for individuals who can stand and walk but may need assistance because of balance problems.

 

It's intended for use on surfaces that meet the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) standards, specifically those with a slope no steeper than 1:20. If you choose to use it on surfaces that don’t meet these standards, you are doing so at your own risk.  

 

The LifeGlider secures the user’s center of gravity to prevent falls, which in turn helps in overcoming the fear of falling. This allows users to walk more confidently for extended distances and durations, helping them build strength.

 

The LifeGlider encourages upright posture, helps restore proper gait, and reinforces a user's sense of balance. It alleviates weight from the legs so individuals with limited strength can regain their ability to perform daily tasks.

 

Securing the centre of gravity:

The body’s centre of gravity affects posture, balance, and gait. Anatomically, it’s located above the small of our backs, the second sacral vertebrae. Falls occur when the centre of gravity moves outside the base of support that’s provided by our feet on a surface. LifeGlider prevents falls by securing the centre of gravity — whether or not you're holding on.

 

The LifeGlider is intended for people who can stand and walk with assistance but have balance issues. The LifeGlider secures your centre of gravity, preventing falls and thus eliminating the fear of falling, so users walk farther and for longer periods and get stronger. The LifeGlider encourages upright posture, helps restore proper gait, and reinforces a user's sense of balance. It alleviates weight from the legs so individuals with limited strength can regain their ability to perform daily tasks.
