MMS Medical, Ireland's largest mobility product specialist with outlets in Cork, Dublin, Galway and Northern Ireland, has won our coveted Dealer of the Quarter Award.

MMS Medical is a family-run mobility product specialist that has been trading for over thirty years. It has achieved this award through exceptional sales of the TGA WHILL Model C powerchair – backed up by a continued customer-focused approach. The WHILL Model C is a pioneering new type of electric wheelchair that combines contemporary styling with world-leading manoeuvrability. Developed in Japan by automotive and technology specialists, WHILL Model C from TGA is unlike any other mobility product on the market. It is a contemporary solution for style-conscious individuals looking for greater independence, confidence and inclusion.

 Every quarter we present this accolade to one of our dealers as official recognition of performance and quality service. In addition to the kudos of winning TGA Dealer of the Quarter, MMS will receive exclusive product discounts, premium champagne and free publicity.

Gearoid O’Herlihy, Managing Director, MMS Medical comments: "We are delighted to have won TGA Dealer of the Quarter for our selling success with WHILL Model C. We are finding the market very receptive to this product as it ideally fills a niche between basic wheelchairs and sophisticated powerchairs. Customers are continually giving us feedback that the WHILL Model C is a preferred solution as it does not resemble a medical product – important to our widening customer age bracket. Users from age 25-60+ are looking at the product, especially those who seek short term mobility assistance and are not full time wheelchair users. Individuals who cannot self-propel over larger distances and have some limited walking abilities are choosing the WHILL so they can conserve energy for more independent mobility at home. WHILL Model C provides a cool and stylish market alternative."

MMS Medical is one of Ireland’s leading medical equipment suppliers. It partners with proven manufacturers and suppliers, such as TGA, to bring the latest technology and innovative solutions to its clients. It has longstanding supply relationships with public and private hospitals, nursing homes, primary care centres and is an approved partner of the HSE in Ireland (Health Service Executive). With a fully trained team of service engineers operating from bases all around the country and backed-up by a fleet of comprehensively equipped vehicles, MMS Medical installs, repairs and services a full range of mobility and rehabilitation equipment.

Gearoid concludes: "This trade award from TGA is also indicative of success as a whole across our business. We are one of the largest suppliers of mobility and rehabilitation products in Ireland and continue to focus on providing innovative solutions – strengthened by our family-run structure and considered assessment-led services. We have very carefully selected our portfolio which now exceeds 400 products to ensure only quality solutions can be chosen by our valued customers. Partnering with TGA so we can supply the WHILL powerchair, Strongback wheelchairs and wheelchair powerpacks is integral to our growth and respected reputation."
