Remembering a lot of these aids are sold to the government at hugely inflated prices
The other end of the market from me I'm afraid.
However, in my experience as a wheelchair retailer, many of the manufacturers sell direct to the NHS at prices approximately 20% below any trade price I can buy the same products for. This is certainly the case with Invacare UK, Sunrise Medical and Bohle. Sub-£100 wheelchairs, £40 walkers, £15 Zimmer frames and crutches at well under £8 per pair.
UK made brazed steel Remploy/Lomax chairs cost more that 3 times those of equivalent Chinese/Taiwanese products from Sunrise etc, and only retain their presence in the UK government market through the massive inertia of the NHS wheelchair services/OTs and buyers.
Mr. Slorance seems to have had plenty of time and VC investment interest, yet he is still asking for data and specification requirements from his potential customers to finalise the design after over 3 years of publicity and Design Awards. The last price I heard was over £6000 each. Probably realistic given the R&D costs, mould costs, F1 design claims and labour costs of UK composites manufacture.
I've never sold scooters, so can't comment on that one.
All the best,
