Our StoryOut and About Healthcare has been leading the healthcare industry with innovative mobility aids since 2006. Established in a small store in Caboolture, Queensland, the demand for high quality, reliable mobility aids has seen this family-owned company rapidly grow to a nationwide association.
Our HistoryIt started with two people and a passion – one coming from a background as a palliative care pastor and another coming from a history in the medical field. Together they saw a great need for innovative medicals aids that were reliable, of outstanding quality and made the user feel confident and independent. Their goal was to radicalise the healthcare industry – providing a product that added to the quality of the user’s life and eased the responsibility on their families.
Starting from scratch as a small business in the heart of Caboolture, Queensland, the couple eventually grew their team.
Eventually, the demand for these products was so great, they moved out of their small store in Caboolture and into 3 large warehouses in Deception Bay. They successfully opened up stores in Townsville, Rockhampton and a State Office in Perth while overseeing dealers in NSW and Victoria.
The once small business quickly became a large corporation with over fifty staff members and products in every state of Australia. While the company has grown larger, the heart of the enterprise remains the same: to provide quality, reliable products and outstanding service to the people of Australia.
Our CompanyOut and About Healthcare is one of the longest standing mobility aids suppliers in Australia. The premise for the company has always been ‘Quality, Reliability, Service’ and we make up a team of over fifty Australians dedicated to ensuring the highest quality of service and product for our customers. Our vision is to see radical changes in the lives of those afflicted by mobility restraints, transforming their quality of life and that of the lives around them.
We invite you to journey with us today on the path to independence.
