Above and beyond

December 17, 2021

We always strive to go above and beyond to find solutions with our therapists for their clients. 

Recently we were approached to assist a therapist and client in Northland who needed one of our customised bariatric chairs. Unfortunately this client had no reliable power source in their house. The team here at WS Medical, including our engineer, came up with an innovative solution... solar power. We attached a solar power panel to the outside of the house, and connected it internally to a battery supply.

The client is now able to have continuous use of their chair, even at night or in cloudy conditions due to the battery storage. A great result for everyone, and a commitment to the New Zealand No.8 wire mentality.


If you have a client that needs an 'outside the square' solution please get in touch with us, we are happy to help.
