As many in the industry know, marketing in the medical and mobility sector is by no means the easiest task. Often, people do not want to think about the solutions available up until the last point when they become essential. This can present a real challenge for raising awareness of products and brands amongst the public, however, some in the industry are using clever ways to grab attention and turn heads. These are five of THIIS’ favourite outside the box marketing ideas from the world of mobility.

Stiltz Lifts announced its launch in New Zealand by advertising in England’s Second Test cricket clash against the Black Caps in April.

The home lifts manufacturer put itself in the sporting spotlight by promoting its brand on the pitch-side hoardings in the game broadcast globally to millions.

Parkour, the art of climbing, running, jumping and vaulting across a near impossible urban obstacle course is not for the feint hearted and very rarely associated with the world of mobility.

That was until ramp specialists The Ramp People shot an incredibly unique video of warehouse member Ben and his brother Toby using the company’s warehouse and van to perform some breath-taking stunts.

Racing ahead
