In the early part of the 1990's there was a serious shortage of suppliers and competitors in the mobility aids market in South Africa. This meant that innovation and new product development was very slow limiting the amount of products available to the disabled, sick and elderly.
With more than 30 years of combined experience in the market at the time, the directors of MEDOP decided to start the company in 1996 to provide alternative options to the mobility market, with the focus on service and to change people's lives for the better.
'"Breaking boundaries" is the intent of MEDOP by providing quality mobility products at affordable prices with back up service and warranties in order to improve the livelihood of those facing mobility challenges.
MEDOP believes that everyone should be able to reach for the stars and dream the impossible.
The company's success can be measured through an extensive dealer network throughout South Africa and the neighbouring countries of Namibia and Botswana.
Quality and service are synonymous with the name MEDOP and the company has been a regular supplier to government through the tender process as well as NGO's such as the Nelson Mandela Childrens Fund.
Today there are many more competitors in the South African market providing numerous products and innovative solutions to mobility challenges.
MEDOP is proud to have led the way in developing such a dynamic market and thrives in such competition by maintaining a solid infrastructure to back up the quality and service of the products supplied into our market.
Innovation is achieved by teaming up with international companies such as INVACARE and STAR and winning the rights to distribute their products throughout Southern Africa.
