Posted on

We are thrilled to introduce Susie Turnbull, our WheelAir Clinical Educator!

Susie qualified as an Occupational Therapist in 2000, working in the NHS and also an independent practitioner since then. Susie’s area of expertise lies in spinal cord injury rehabilitation, where she has enjoyed 14 years at the National Spinal Injuries Centre. Having also achieved a Masters in Design Research for Disability (2006), Susie is excited to join the WheelAir team, where she can combine her passions for a good idea and improving lives for people with disabilities.


Susie will be focusing on furthering the development and implementation of WheelAir’s clinical strategy. 

Her role includes building on microclimate research and fully understanding the effects of overheating and over-sweating on wheelchair users. Research will be advanced through partnerships with Universities and Hospitals and presented at conferences worldwide.

We are confident that the vast knowledge Susie has built-up will translate in stronger company resources and further assist us in training our commercial network.


Welcome to the team!!
