Recycling of Medical Aids
UMT are a non for profit Social Enterprise CIC where they save used community mobility equipment that is destined to be scrapped. They repair, refurbish and upcycle the equipment helping with the circular economy.
Their aim is to have a warehouse where they will offer volunteer and job opportunities to veterans with PTSD and mental ill health initially and once the structure is in place they will open their offer to disabled and less able bodied people.
The aids will be offered at a greatly reduced cost for individuals who wish to purchase equipment that has not been up cycled or a little more when a item has been refurbished in bespoke colours and materials.
Equipment that is not suitable for its intended use is upcycled into garden boxes, seats, trollies which are all raised to help wheelchair users garden.
