MP Praises Ipswich Care Company For Its Ground Breaking New Patients Products

Health Minister, and Central Suffolk and North Ipswich MP Dr Dan Poulter last week toured an award winning Ipswich Company that manufactures health care products for both the NHS and people with complex healthcare needs living at home.

Felgains of Knightsdale Road Ipswich design specialist armchairs, beds, mattresses and other accessories, designed to help improve the daily lives of patients. Some of their newest designs which improve care for patients with mobility problems are currently being trialled at the James Paget Hospital.

Dr Poulter who still practices as an NHS hospital doctor, was shown round the Company by General Manager Mr Webber, and was particularly impressed with some of company's new bed adaptations and hoists which help to ease the movement of patients confined to bed and also reduce the risk of bed sores.

Dr Poulter said: "I am delighted that this award winning Ipswich Company is a local centre of excellence in producing high quality health care products that improve and enhance the lives of patients throughout Suffolk and the rest of the UK.

"I was very interested in the extensive research that Felgains have undertaken in order to develop their products, which provide real help and support to patients. These ground breaking medical products will also help save the NHS money by making basic care less labour intensive for staff and freeing up their time for more important aspects of frontline patient care."

I know she...
