“Ability Matters also provide orthotic services through its sister company Opcare”
Ability Matters also provide orthotic services through its sister company Opcare, and advertise a wide range of orthotic devices through another sister company, Ortho Europe. Orthoses are devices worn externally to the body to support, control and realign muscles and bones – and they can have a life-changing impact on the user. Some people will wear orthoses long-term, whilst others will use these temporarily, and the devices can range from knee braces to helmets to spinal supports.
We have three retail outlets which offer mobility products and daily living aids, supplying anything from scooters and custom-made chairs to kitchen utensils and walking sticks. Our in-store consultants can give you expert advice on each product, helping to select the right mobility aid for you. Support does not end when you walk out of the shop – we offer repairs and servicing for as long as you need it. We are also an approved and award-winning Motability dealer.
