Thirty years ago, an ambitious nurse working in the mental health sector recognised the need for enhanced specialist seating for those with disabilities who required better and more appropriate postural and pressure support. With the assistance of occupational therapists, and using his knowledge of the sector, Martin Battye developed innovative seating products that led to the naissance of The Kirton Healthcare Group. Today, the Group owns the intellectual property of more than 30 models, setting a high benchmark in the provision of specialist seating products for the disabled and older people.

Responding to challenges is one of the most enjoyable facets of developing sensory and soft play environments. Standing in a large cavernous room at Ifield School, Gravesend, surrounded by walls painted 'battleship' grey with a ceiling arcing from standard room height up to 5m high with previous few plug sockets present, I was faced with just such a challenge.........

Every year Kirton reflects on the performances of their dealers and looks to see if any one stands out above the rest and truly delivers an exceptional service to its customers in the provision of Kirton products.
