Darren started his career in the mobility industry in 1999 as a service engineer in Kent repairing and servicing scooters, powerchairs and stairlifts. Ongoing pro-active training enabled Darren to develop a ‘made-to-measure’ Rise and Recline service for a mobility company in Bristol and further develop a new Postural Support System for nursing homes and healthcare professionals called ‘Tilt in Space’. This innovative system was not just used in static risers but also specialist wheelchairs, which both users and indeed carers found easy to use, but also beneficial for both posture and enabling people to be sociable for longer periods!
Using this experience Darren found that he was not just selling but advising on other mobility products and seating systems involving cushion, back support, belt, harness and even correct posture education for children. This holistic attitude worked with many products including standard, passive and active user wheelchairs, powered wheelchairs and even on the odd occasion, stairlifts. Moving back to Kent in 2014 Darren was appointed as the South East & London’s posture and seating specialist for Invacare working with therapists, schools, wheelchair services and other mobility suppliers.
However he soon came to realise that Medway and East Kent were missing a supplier who really understood how to help seat clients properly and match the right products to their needs and requirements….and as a result Darren launched Tailor Made Mobility in June 2016.
