Health & Wellbeing
We take pride in being members of the Guild of Mastercraftsmen. Most people recognise this organisation as being the leading overseer of quality in creative and construction industries. Membership is not easy to come by - it is achieved only through recommendation by clients who can confirm exceptional service standards.
ORWOODS staff have extensive experience (over the last 20 years) of professionally assessing mobility & independent living needs - working closely with users, Disability Living Centres and other healthcare professionals - and of manufacturing and supplying standard and non-standard specifications of bed solutions accordingly.
In addition, we bring the same professionalism and attention to detail to the supply of riser-recliner chairs - at all stages from assessment to installation - working with the leading manufacturing companies in the specialist chair field.
From the point of launch of the business, ORWOODS have always been registered manufacturers of medical devices with the Medicines & Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (‘MHRA’). This registration is by no means ‘just a label’, and the MHRA is not a simple ‘pay-to-join’ trade association.
Registration is not open to ‘just anyone’: only manufacturers of products which qualify - on quality grounds - as medical devices are eligible to register, at which point registration immediately becomes compulsory, bringing with it a substantial regulated system of product design and manufacture quality control which acknowledges and reflects the quality expectations of dependent and vulnerable users of such equipment.
It is a necessary consequence of the way in which the legislation works that:
- ONLY true manufacturers of healthcare products are registered with MHRA
- ALL true manufacturers of healthcare products (including specifically adjustable beds) MUST be registered with MHRA; and therefore manufacturers who are not registered with MHRA are NOT true manufacturers of healthcare products at all
