Aged care

The population of Australia like many developed countries is ageing, immigration and birth rates are not keeping up with increased life expectancy. As we retire, fewer workers are available to continue providing the same level of service in Aged care as we have today. There are obvious solutions such as incentives to increase the birth rate or allowing immigrants or foreign workers into the country.

A far better cost effective solution is to improve productivity in the Aged Care industry but using advanced medical equipment to reduce the need for care. Just like in sports, medical supplies have continued to develop, adapt and benefit patients. As an example, we have evolved from walking sticks, to walking frames, to wheel chairs and now motorised chairs enabling once immobile patients the freedom of independent mobility.

Many of our products provide support for functions which don't quite work like they use to. For example, wrist support for injured or painful joints enable patients to continue some level of self-care. With our prime medical supplies, we can return a considerable part of a patients mobility improving their quality of life and reducing the need for staff.

Sports Medicine

Curt Mueller Curt Mueller, pictured left, is the founder of Mueller products and originated the term "Sports Medicine". Back in 1960, after his active basketball feats at uni and while working at the family pharmacy, he realised athletes were not getting the best performance from what was available at the time. So, he reinvented training room supplies creating products which enhanced performance and provide better protection for users.

From there, the family business blossomed into a world leader of sports medicine and sports related products.

 

The Mueller vision is second to none. Always improving and pushing the boundaries of technology to help in performance and rapid recovery. Through the years great breakthroughs have been made, assisting the worlds leading sports-people to excel in their field.

For decades, athletes worldwide have relied on Mueller. Early offerings like M-Tape®, M-Wrap® and the MediKit™ athletic trainer’s kit proved to be training room stalwarts. Then, a complete line of patented braces and supports under the Mueller Sport Care® brand brought a new level of protection to athletes of all levels.

We supply quality products for ankle support, arm and elbow support, back support, cold and hot therapy, hand and wrist support, knee support, shoulder support, sports strapping tape, massage creams, therapeutic gels treatment tables and more.
