Gordon Mcquilton MBE Founder and Managing Director at Specialised Orthotic Services

Specialised Orthotic Services Ltd was the first dedicated Special Seating Company in the UK, established in 1980 by its founder and MD, Gordon McQuilton MBE.

This followed on from his work on the development of the ‘Derby Moulded Seat whilst at the Orthotic and Disabilities Research Centre at Derby Royal Infirmary hospital.

His vast experience and expertise working within the NHS provided a greater understanding of the day to day issues which effect healthcare professionals and their clients.

We know that the NHS is striving to improve its services in a financially challenging time. So, we continuously improve our products and services through innovative design and listening to users and professional’s feedback and the latest thinking and research.
