Island Medical is a small patient focused compression and rehabilitation business based in Mauritius.
Founded by Nicole Pearce in 2013, the first few years were dedicated to getting compression therapy recognised as a treatment protocol for lymphedema, venous insufficiency and lymphatic insufficiency.
In February of 2015, in conjunction with Link to Life, Complete Decongestive Therapy was offered for the first time to patients suffering from breast cancer related lymphedema. The working relationship has grown year on year and now over 180 financially vulnerable patients who have undergone breast cancer treatment are screened, monitored and supported annually.
On the 11th June 2019 Link to Life and Island Medical succeeded in getting the laws changed in Mauritius to grant duty and VAT free status for all compression garments.
The collaboration with JUZO in Germany in 2016 was a break through that allowed the best compression products to become available to patients in Mauritius.
Island Medical Online Shop is the exciting next step in offering top quality compression and orthopaedic products to patients. And not just for the island of Mauritius but for Seychelles, Reunion and Madagascar.
The two core values of the company are Patient Focus and Quality – with the measurement chart on every product page, patients can measure and ensure that they are choosing the correct size and they can make contact with a qualified therapist to double check their order, ask advice and even send a picture so we can best understand their needs.
