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.

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 Thomas

Research and Strategy Director

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
