Being in poor health can dramatically reduce our ability to move, leading to further health complications and slower recovery. At Direct Healthcare Group, we recognise that movement is vital to our recovery, rehabilitation and independence. We believe that supporting mobility and independence is essential to achieving and maintaining good health.

No-one better understands the importance of movement and its relationship to both physical and mental health than Direct Healthcare Group, especially when the need to move directly affects our quality of daily living. Through this understanding, and close collaboration with healthcare professionals, we strive to provide effective, movement-based solutions that increase life-quality across care and living environments.

From effective prevention and treatment of pressure ulcers, to promoting safe independence and avoiding patient falls, our solutions support care delivery to a broad patient spectrum, including those with complex, long term conditions. At Direct Healthcare Group we uniquely enable the healthcare challenges associated with reduced patient movement to be anticipated, managed, and in many cases, resolved to support care providers and those they care for.

All leading to better health outcomes, accelerated recovery and easier daily living.
