Andy's bio

How Physiquipe came about

I left university with a degree in Sports Science and a particular interest in physical rehabilitation. Prior to Physiquipe, I was as a client relationship manager working with healthcare professionals across the UK. During this period I travelled extensively, visiting some of the best medical facilities around the world and meeting inspirational, dedicated people committed to enhancing the rehabilitation of their clients. I could see that the U.K was not at the forefront of technological innovation in various aspects of rehabilitation, and I realised there was an opportunity to bring the best technology from around the world to help raise the standards of healthcare. I had built up great relationships with both manufacturers and clients, so I was able to select products which were going to have the biggest impact for clinical outcomes.

Why do you do what you do?

I have always had a passion for health and fitness as well as for helping people. I love the challenge of searching for new and innovative ways to help both patients and clinicians. I also believe that equipment is of no benefit unless it is used by the right people in the correct circumstances. This is why we have such a focus on education through the Physiquipe Academy. All of our suppliers from around the world share our philosophy of education rather than ‘sales’. I love my ‘work’ and feel very privileged to be able to work with our team and with clients each and every day.

One person you want to have dinner with and why

It would have to be David Attenborough. The guy is an absolute legend and his voice and knowledge is incredible. I love animals and the environment so would love to chat with him about that but he must have some amazing advise and outlooks on life too.

David's Bio

Job Role

Physiquipe’s range products have many potential applications across a variety of markets. This sometimes makes it challenging in knowing how best to use our resources to best effect. My job is to make sure that, as a business, we identify, target and engage with those customers who will get the maximum benefit from our solutions.

Why do you do what you do?

I love working at Physiquipe because we are addressing a real problem, in truly innovative ways. Populations are ageing and our diet our work and our lifestyles are not preparing our bodies for the future. We get to see the solutions of the future – developed all around the world – and then deliver them to people that can make a real difference. Not to mention that I have been a test patient for every single product we work with – and they always get me back out on the sports field.

One person you want to have dinner with and why

Grigori Rasputin. He was a healer and also rather unusual. It would have been an interesting night (if he spoke English), however, I am 100 years too late.

Why do you do what you do?

Getting our core message to the right people to enhance and improve the way they currently work is very important to me. The digital world is growing rapidly and is a very powerful source to reach and educate customers in an interesting and interactive way.

One person you want to have dinner with and why

Andy Murray for his sense of humour and vibrant personality… And minor achievements. It would have to be a light dinner as we would need time for a hit afterwards.

There is no better feeling knowing you have helped someone whether it be eliminating pain, or helping someone on the road to recovery aiming to get you back doing what you enjoy as soon as possible.

One person you want to have dinner with and why

Sir Mo Farah is not only one of the world’s leading sporting phenomenon’s, but an icon with the most loving personality and highly competitive drive that I feel as though I can definitely relate to. I imagine that he would have so many crazy stories to tell, the perfect dinner guest (especially if we get to feast on a pre-marathon pasta party).

Katherine Heyes

Clinic Manager

Katherine's Bio

Job Role

As a Sports Therapist i look to treat anything involving the musculoskeletal system from muscle tears and ligament sprains, to lower back pain and those reoccurring niggles (and no it doesn’t have to be a sports related injury, despite the title). I’d look to use a variety of treatment options including gait and movement analysis, joint mobilisations, acupuncture, muscle release techniques and exercise prescription, all of which tailored to the client and the demands of their day to day life.

Why do you do what you do?

Being a sport enthusiast but also being a regular in the treatment room, were the main reasons for choosing a career as a Sports Therapist. Working in both a sporting environment as well as private clinical practice, i get the chance to meet and work with a variety of clients. From your elite, high performing athletes who are looking for help with their competition preparation or return to play programs, to those who have struggled for years with chronic pain, who just want some relief and help trying to regain some functionality to their lives. The job satisfaction is continuous and can be gained in so many ways on a day to day basis. Not to mention having the chance to get to know and build a rapport with some of the most amazing people and hearing their stories as they chat their way through a 60 minute sports massage.

One person you want to have dinner with and why

Hmm very tricky question… I’m always one for light hearted conversation at the dinner table and a bit of a giggle so I’d have to say Melissa McCarthy, my all time favourite female comedian and she also comes across like a really lovely, sweet person.
