Whether it is specialist equipment, facility hire, equipment hire and sales or maintenance and repairs, we have you covered.


When most people think about mobility, what comes to mind is crutches, a wheelchair, walking frames.

While ALTER can most definitely assist you with these common items through both hire and sale, our core business is to improve both quality of life and outcomes for all members of our society. We do this via cutting edge technology and a keen focus on meeting your specific needs.

Whether via personal request, or dealing direct with your Doctor, Surgeon, clinician or therapist, ALTER will attend to all of your unique requirements.
