Medequip has expanded the scope of its work for Derbyshire County Council with the addition of a new contract covering the supply of sensory equipment.

The contract will see Medequip supply equipment to enhance the quality of life for people living with hearing and vision impairment or loss.

Having managed community equipment services for Derbyshire Council for over 15 years, the new sensory equipment contract was awarded following a competitive tender process, says the company.

The contract will run for two years and includes installation and maintenance.

According to the community equipment services provider, the new contract spans a comprehensive and varied range of equipment, including personal listening aids, Megaloop listening systems, alarm clocks, talking watches, phone triggers and doorbell alerts as well as talking kitchen equipment such as scales and measuring devices.

In addition, equipment developed to assist those with visual impairment has been selected on recommendation by organisations including the RNIB.

Commenting for Medequip, Steve Smith, General Manager North East, said: “Supply of sensory equipment is a service which sits well with our community equipment facilities. Additional training for our staff ensures that we can provide a tailored facility matching the special requirements of users with vision and hearing impairment.”

The latest contract win continues Medequip’s growth in various areas of community equipment and follows the expansion of its telecare capabilities with the creation of Medequip Connect last year.

Additionally, the company launched its first hospital retail outlet in the Kings Treatment Centre of the Royal Derby Hospital earlier this month.
