Paralympics Ireland have announced that The Vision Group has become its Official Supplier of Medical and Sports Rehabilitation Products.
Paralympic hopeful Patrick Flanagan joined representatives of Paralympics Ireland and The Vision Group, to announce a new partnership between the two organisations, that will include the Tokyo 2020 and Paris 2024 Paralympic Games.
The Vision Group are a 100 per cent Irish owned company that is dedicated to helping improve the daily living environment for the less able through their new programme “Education In Motion”.
As part of the new partnership, they will supply a range of essential personal protective equipment, Trauma and Physio equipment for Team Ireland as they go forward to compete at the 2020 Paralympic Games.
That equipment will include a range of PPE, infection control packs and a range of medical, health care and mobility equipment.
“Paralympics Ireland are very pleased to welcome The Vision Group as partners to Team Ireland,” said CEO Miriam Malone.
“They are providing us with essential Medical and Sports Rehabilitation equipment which will be of vital importance to the Paralympic Team that represents us in Tokyo this year. I would like to thank Dave Lahart and his team for their help and support, and I really look forward to a partnership that will blossom in Tokyo and on into Paris 2024.”
“We are extremely excited to partner with Team Ireland for the next 4 years,” added Dave Lahart, a Director of The Vision Group.
“Paralympics Ireland is exactly the type of organisation we want to align ourselves with and we look forward to a great partnership over the coming years.”
Flanagan is one of the top swimmers in Europe and is hoping that he has done enough to earn a place on the plane to Tokyo as part of the Team Ireland Para-Swimming team. The young swimming star has achieved the Minimum Qualifying and High-Performance Standards and competed at the European Championships in Portugal recently.
“We learned so much over in Portugal about travelling during Covid restrictions, the daily testing environment, spending so much time on your own in your room, social distancing in transport and at competition venues, and the importance of observing the safety protocols.”
“That is why having an announcement like today with the Vision Group is so important, it means that we will have the top-class safety equipment that we need. I and my fellow athletes will feel safe at all times allowing us to just concentrate on doing our best when we get into competition.”
Allianz, Circle K, Flogas, Citi and Toyota are the main commercial partners of Paralympics Ireland. The Tokyo 20 Games get underway in 46 days time on August 24th.
