Rachel Nurse

Consulting Occupational Therapist

As an Occupational Therapist working in the NHS with the Older Adult population, I see daily the importance of good quality seating and the impact it has on function, comfort, safety, and overall wellbeing. Seating that offers postural support enabling optimal respiratory function, providing safe positioning for eating and drinking, supporting skin integrity and minimising the risk of pressure damage, and supporting engagement in chosen activities. When I was approached by Justina & Stuart to become a consultant OT for the company, I jumped at the chance. As a family business it made sense; I am, after all Stuart’s cousin! Also, we share similar passions, helping people do what they want and need to do, with friendly service and candid communication. Developing a great working relationship is the first step in the process, understanding what the seating is to be used for and performing a detailed assessment allows us to recommend appropriate brands and sizes and get it right first time. I’m excited to be able to use my skills to support Justina and Stuart in providing great quality seating to people to enable them to experience a better quality of life.

Stuart Nurse

Co-Director, Owner and Seating Assessor

I am the proud owner of Stuart Mobility, specialising in seating and chairs for a wide range of people. During my late 30s, I worked for two Community Equipment companies and saw a gap in the market for quality well made British rise and recliner chairs at a reasonable price. I started out selling re-conditioned British made chairs via eBay. This quickly progressed to new chairs after I was approached by a leading manufacturer and after training, I launched a website to sell a small selection of new British chairs alongside the re-conditioned ones. This grew to more manufacturers and 10 years later, Stuart Mobility is proud to be one of the main independent retail seating specialists in the country. We work with many OTs across the country, supply to the NHS, Care Homes and Nursing Homes and many domestic homes. We only sell chairs and seating so as not to dilute our speciality and we work with many of the British mobility seating manufacturers. We don’t use Reps and therefore don’t pay commission to anyone so our prices are transparent and available throughout our website. I personally, or my wife, visit people in their homes and premises to bring a selection of chairs to carry out a full assessment enabling the customer to get the right chair for them. It’s very important to me that the chair fits properly and does what it needs to do for the customer and all without breaking the bank.

Justina Nurse

Co-Director and Seating Assessor

I work with Stuart on a day to day basis, mainly in the office, but occasionally on seating assessments too. I am the person that most people will talk to if they phone, email or webchat. I will initially diagnose what customers are after by asking specific questions which helps me decide what chairs Stuart needs to bring for an assessment. I have a vast knowledge of our products and a great working relationship with our suppliers and this allows me to orchestrate the business. I come from a managerial background in the voluntary sector so multi-tasking is second nature. I am also a qualified assessor and trainer with many years of training people in various subjects from all different walks of life. I continue my training and knowledge through various courses and online platforms and keep us up to date by being part of the trade body British Healthcare Trade Association and utilising all their resources as well as all the information and training from our manufacturers. I am very passionate about this sector and would love to see more standards and regulations introduced to ensure that everyone is protected and customers are given the best advice and support with a product at a reasonable cost.
