MedEquip4Kids has provided nearly £4,000 of new sensory equipment for the children’s ward at Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hospital in Oswestry, with the help of developers Kier Construction. Not only did the company build the £15.1 million theatre and ward development at the Oswestry-based hospital last year, they also raised money for equipment including fibre-optic lights and tactile toys.

Alice Ward Manager Suzanne Marsden said: “Many of our patients need intensive physio to keep their joints and muscles healthy. So to be able to bring them into the sensory room or take the sensory equipment to their bedside is priceless. It calms patients down and allows us to treat them without them stressing. The ward is so grateful to Kier and MedEquip4kids for all their help.”

“The materials provided greatly help with the therapeutic process and engaging children, young people and their families in therapeutic work. The young people greatly appreciate having this equipment to use within their sessions. Many of the young people we see have a history of trauma including neglect and being able to access materials that they can use and enjoy is of great benefit and hopefully assists us to reinforce the messages of their worth as their self-concept is often very low.”
