ProMove UK Ltd was established in 2007 by (the now late) Dr Huw Thomas and current director Dana Thomas. Huw had limb girdle muscular dystrophy and initially designed the ProMove sling for his own use, mainly due to difficulties in transferring from his wheelchair at airports. The company was established in order to sell the sling to others in a similar situation to himself. The sling is manufactured in Wales, allowing a close relationship between production and sales ensuring the highest possible standards of quality. ProMove believes that the equipment it designs and creates should overcome disabilities, should be well designed and made with due care and attention. The ProMove sling is hand crafted by a skilled and dedicated team who are genuinely passionate about quality. Local people working to international standards of production and safety, that is what is behind the products ISO9000 and CE accreditation.
