He completed his core rotations in adult physiotherapy for three years before specialising as a Paediatric Physiotherapist in 2019 where he provided a wide variety of holistic therapy and support to children with developmental delay, complex neurological conditions, and musculoskeletal injuries.

He has a keen interest in helping children with cerebral palsy and the management of hip dysplasia and will continue to work in an NHS locum role alongside his role at Jenx to ensure his clinical skills continue to evolve.

Kieran said: “What attracted me to Jenx was that the care, compassion and quality of life for their service users and their families is at the core of the company’s values – values that are in line with the NHS principles I firmly believe in.

“As a company, Jenx and its employees clearly have a close-knit family feel that I’m excited to be a part of, and I have been given such a fantastic welcome by my colleagues already.

“I’m extremely excited to have the chance to be involved in the development of more life changing products for children and the families worldwide.”

Jenx, whose headquarters are based in Hillsborough, Sheffield, is a family-run company founded back in 1982 by a paediatric physiotherapist and a product designer with the aim of enriching lives and changing perceptions about disability.

Ever since, it has been researching, designing, and manufacturing ground-breaking developmental postural equipment to support children with specific postural needs.
