This is why we do what we do at MMS Medical. This is why we strategically partner with companies like Permobil that invest heavily in R & D to bring better client solutions to the market. This is always about the end result – improving the lives of people with mobility hurdles to overcome.

Saskia lives in Hong Kong. Her parents tried to source a mobility aid for their daughter as she was unable to stand or walk. Not happy with the solutions they were presented with, they got in touch with MMS Medical on a trip home to Ireland. Our product specialist Micheal O’Riain went to meet the family, conducted an assessment and showed the family the new Explorer Mini from Permobil. It was a match made in heaven. Saskia loved the product, the bright colours and was soon zooming around.  The family returned to Hong Kong with the Explorer mini and says it has made such a difference to Saskia’s live and the family’s too. We are delighted to share the photos sent to us from Saskia on a recent family holiday in Disney World in Florida. Saskia got to meet and greet all her favourite princesses. This is one well travelled little lady and so is her aptly named Explorer Mini.

“We cannot speak highly enough about the Explorer and yourself ( Micheal O’Riain) for all the assistance you gave us. Not to bore you with videos but Saskia has even done the limbo in her Explorer! “



Dear Micheal,

Thank you so much for your help in finding me the best mode of transport ever. I absolutely love my Explorer and it has changed my life in Hong Kong, both at school, at home and with my friends. I am now an awesome driver too 1

Thanks again and love from Hong Kong

Saskia, Aisling & Ian
