UK customers now have the benefit of a direct line to THERA-Trainer. In order to be able to offer even better support to patients and clinicians with their range of robotic technology that’s made in Germany, THERA-Trainer has taken over the ongoing business of Medicotech Ltd.

From January 2022 physiotherapy centres, care homes, ICUs, MS-Centres, Stroke Units and rehab centres, as well as private individuals were given a direct line to THERA-Trainer. Jonathan Kopf, THERA-Trainer’s CEO, commented: “Our fast growth in the UK brought us to a point where we can better serve patients and professional customers with our own branch in the UK. The UK branch is already our fifth worldwide – we’re expanding!”

Professional devices and robotic systems
John Blake, head of sales and business development UK, is particularly excited to see more high-end robotic systems in clinics across the UK. “There is a great need for products such as our lyra gait-trainer or our sensor-based bemo bed-trainer, which is also used for the care of COVID-19 patients. Customers are already able to see and experience this equipment in many professional settings, such as in our reference-centre MOTIONrehab, which is managed by Sarah Daniel.” John adds: “We promised our customers a direct line and that’s what we’ve given them. If you are interested in buying or renting our equipment and would like to book a free demo, or if you would like to visit a reference centre, contact us on or 01908 564100.”

Smooth transition
THERA-Trainer UK is the result of the acquisition of the long-standing distributor Medicotech Ltd. which, under the management of Shukri Mansour, has been very successful in helping customers across the UK improve their quality of life for over a decade. This will enable THERA-Trainer to help even more patients in the future – true to its vision “life in motion – our promise to all of those who need it most”. UK is therefore a key component in driving the double-digit growth further worldwide and to contribute to the success story of THERA-Trainer.

Family-run business
In contrast to other companies that are often controlled by investors, THERA-Trainer is one of the few remaining manufacturers in our field, worldwide, that are still family-run. Co-CEO Peter Kopf, who founded THERA-Trainer 30 years ago, promises: “Our products will continue to be manufactured in accordance with the principles of ‘safe, easy, effective and affordable’ in line with German quality standards from development and construction to production in southern Germany.” The reliability of a family business as a long-term and trustworthy partner has been rewarded – with more than 70,000 devices installed worldwide in over 70 countries, THERA-Trainer is a global market leader for gait rehabilitation.
