About us

My name is Nigel Arnison and in 1989 I suffered a spinal cord injury C6/7 due to a car accident. After spending eight months at Hexham spinal injuries unit recovering from my injuries, where I found the staff to have been excellent, I was discharged into the big wide world again and it was then that I quickly realised how much my life had changed.

One of the hardest things that I had to come to terms with was losing my independence. You may have the most caring family and friends in the world who would not hesitate to help you!. But having to ask for help was a bitter pill to swallow.

I soon discovered that there were items available to make life easier but it was not easy to obtain them. It was due to these frustrations that the Active Mobility Centre was born.

Since Active Mobility started all those years ago, you could say by accident (pardon the pun) I would like to think that we have gained a reputation for being a friendly caring company with staff who are very informative and always willing to help.

We receive many letters of thanks for our service.

Again I wish to thank you for visiting our site and I do hope that you have found it helpful. If you have any comments good or bad about the site or if you have any ideas on how we can improve it then please let me know.

I look forward to hearing from you,

Best Wishes and happy shopping!
