A Cromhall based business is pleased to be recognised as the first company to begin to offer face-to-face courses in accredited Pelvic Floor Training.

De Smit Medical Systems Ltd, offer a range of courses each year supporting women’s health as well as women’s health products including treatments for fertility and incontinence issues.

Clinicians from around the country attend the courses led by leading consultants in various fields. Taught by Consultant Pelvic Health Physiotherapist, Julia Herbert, the company offer four courses providing clinical competency in the field of pelvic floor health and continence.

Owner Lyn De Smit started the business in 2002 in her own home and has grown the business gradually ever since.

The nationwide, medical device distributor has continued working throughout the coronavirus pandemic. The company adapted their business and began supplying essential medical equipment including bladder scanners to the NHS Nightingale hospitals.

During lockdown Lyn said she engaged her business continuity plan, implementing new practices and increasing technology uses, to adapt for the change in business needs.

Lyn said: “We didn’t close through coronavirus because we offer a vital service to medical professionals as well as our clients.

“Our core team remained in our offices throughout lockdown to keep our operations running to ensure we could continue to make and supply vital distributions to the NHS and other medical bodies.”

The company furloughed 40% of its staff during lockdown, all have now returned, and they are looking to recruit more members to their diverse team.

Lyn added: “Our essential work is ever-expanding. We are currently looking to recruit members of staff in both our accounts and service teams as we continue to grow.

“We have an apprentice technician and we like to keep our workforce diverse to ensure we always have a wealth of different experiences and knowledge within our company.

“We are pleased to support the community.

“We have a vast array of products to suit different ages and genders. We even offer bed-wetting devices, suitable for young children.”
