Phil Thompson

 Assistive Technology Consultant

With a background in orthotics and physiology (as a clinical masseur) spanning over 30 years, Phil is joining the GTK family with over 14 years experience in powered mobility and customised seating & positioning.
Phil ‘cut his wheelchair teeth’ back in 2007, and instantly realised that he had found his true calling.
He says that getting to really know people, and learning how he can help them live their lives the way they want to, is incredibly rewarding.
Phil loves the fact that he still sees many of his clients regularly as he continues to work with them; either by ‘tweaking’ their current chairs in order to keep improving their lifestyles, or helping them when it’s time to make the move to a new wheelchair.
“I’ve made many long-term relationships in this job, but I think the most flattering moment was when one of my ‘regulars’ actually invited me to her wedding!”

In his spare time Phil can be found (hiding from his wife & 2 teenaged daughters) in his shed.
