Here at Active Linx our vision is to ensure that neurological disorders, amputations or a physical restriction is not the end of being active. We want to make it a new beginning. We specialise in advanced medical equipment to increase the strength, health and mental wellbeing of individuals with disability so that they can thrive in everyday life. Our passion lies in both the health of the individual and the technology that is used to get them there.
Meet the team
As a paraplegic and active wheelchair user of some 35 years I know only too well the importance of keeping fit and active for living longer with less medical complications. From being a post graduate of sports science from Loughborough University and former Paralympian my passion has always been to promote innovative equipment that will enhance the lives of fellow Disabled individuals and the health benefits that they offer.
We provide a ‘one–to–one’ service where we consider all the individual needs and requirements. We are involved from bespoke assessments all the way through to delivery, hand-over, set-up, and training as well as offering after sales support. Knowing first-hand how accessible activity can enhance and encourage a healthier lifestyle we feel confident in promoting these unique products that contributes to the wellbeing of the lives of individuals with disabilities.
My background has always been in engineering and after a 7 year career in the British Army as an Electronics Technician I wanted to apply my skills in a medical environment. After completing an undergraduate degree in Medical Engineering at the University of Surrey I then went on to a complete a Master’s degree in Biomedical Engineering at Imperial College London. I conducted my postgraduate research on FES cycling and witnessed how beneficial this kind of technology was to individuals facing disability, and how much potential there was increasing these benefits further.
Seeing first-hand what people with any kind of limitation can accomplish with the right tools drives me in this work. I appreciate that what most people take for granted such as standing, walking or cycling is critical for everyone. Working with Paul, who is a long-time wheelchair user, business owner and former Paralympic athlete has inspired me want to help other people regain similar levels of health and independence.
