Welcome to our Website!

On Saturday 23rd November PhysioNet volunteers packed all this recycled equipment into a 40ft container which was successfully dispatched to Zimbabwe where poverty levels and any health care is in crisis. Value of equipment, if new, approximately £85,000. Most of the equipment, if not repaired, cleaned and recycled would end up as scrap. 

We have few expenses except for the collection of equipment from around mainland UK. Please help this by donating below – Thank you!

Physionet teams up with LIHDA

LIHDA (Lymphoedema International Health & Delvelopment Awareness) http://www.lihda.org/ is a charity run entirely by volunteers. They have a simple goal: to improve the lives of patients suffering from lymphoedema, which is swelling of the limbs caused by various medical conditions. People suffering from this condition in low and middle income countries do not have access to garments to reduce the swelling, and they suffer from employment difficulties and social stigma. The garments are distributed by therapists through the health care systems and regulatory bodies in each country. The garments are shipped in containers or lorries with other redundant equipment in partnership with PhysioNet.
