  • A Journey to Revolutionary Products

    26 Sep 2018 Cassie Roberts

    The history of the Huntington’s products designed and manufactured by Novacorr is an interesting one. In 2011 Keith Atkinson, Managing Director of Novacorr was contacted by an Occupational Therapist. Novacorr had been manufacturing equipment for bariatric clients and clients with spinal injuries and had developed a reputation as a company that solved. On this occasion the OT asked Keith to go out and look at a bed for a patient with Huntington’s Disease. The OT had exhausted all other options and still had no solution for her client.

    Keith had never come across Huntington’s Disease before, so was shocked to see a lady lying on a mattress on the floor, with her arms and legs jerking around and the client making noises as though she was choking. Keith initially had to leave the room as he was so upset by what he had seen.

    Moved by his experience, Keith set out to make a solution which would provide safety, comfort and dignity to this client and those with similar symptoms. This has become an enduring passion not just for Keith, but for the whole family and the whole company.
