Our Story

A determined team, hard work and dedication has brought us to where we stand today – a respected and leading manufacturer of clinically effective pressure area care products.

Since our inception in 2001, we’ve been guided by our desire to create a better everyday life for each and everyone who encounter the Select Medical brand. We have articulated this desire into what we call our C3 Approach, ensuring we consider the Care Provider, Carer and Cared for in everything we do.

From the outset, pressure area care has been at the core of our business.  It is something we specialise in and as a specialist, we aim to do this really well.  Our journey has seen us produce pressure relieving support surfaces for some well respected healthcare companies under their own brands.

Today, our wealth of experience and knowledge has been used to develop our own brands. We are extremely proud of the success of our Pure Air, Simpulse and OLA brands, which continue to meet the diverse needs of our different customer groups.

Select Medical was born out of an idea to make things better for those who rely upon the optimum performance of a pressure relief support surface and those involved in delivering the best care package possible. A company with the thought that one day our products and services could touch the lives of many people and create a better everyday life.

Investment will continue into the future to propel the organisation towards further success as we build on our existing brands with new, innovative products. The organisation continues to grow, with new staff bringing their expertise in a range of fields to the business. We are deeply committed to supporting the success and development of our people and are extremely proud of their achievements.

We have a thriving research and product development programme. This ensures our pressure relieving mattress and seating systems continue to meet our customers’ expectations, across all care establishments. Our products and services progress with the aim of achieving quality at affordable prices for all our customers.

Our supply chain has always been, and remains, very important to us. We have built long-term supplier relationships to ensure we continue producing quality pressure relieving mattress systems long into the future.

Although experts in the field of pressure care, our vision also goes beyond this. We want to create a better everyday for all people across changing care environments.  That’s why we successfully partner with a select few of the UK’s leading healthcare equipment companies. They recognise us for our promise of excellence and value.
