Merits Health Products Ltd was founded in 1986 to design and manufacture innovative healthcare products for all people who experience mobility and health problems, and today is considered one of the leading mobility product manufacturers.
Merits specialises in a variety of products including manual and power wheelchairs, scooters, walkers/rollators, canes, bath benches, commodes, aluminium underarm crutches, lift chairs, electric beds and more.
The current owners, Ian & Yvonne Rothall, purchased Scooter World Australia in November 1998, and have enjoyed building the business based on the principles of supplying quality, standards tested products with exceptional customer service.
The aged mobility and rehabilitation industry is still young and dynamic, and has seen a wide range of changes since the introduction of the mobility scooter as a means of transport. Throughout this time we have seen the company grow and expand from the original import to retail company (Scooter World Australia P/L) to a point where it was necessary to develop a retail company (Scooter World – the mobility people) separate from the existing wholesale company. Finally, the decision to change the name from Scooter World Australia P/L to Merits Australia P/L under the umbrella company RothCorp Australia, reflects our pride in the Merits products we sell.
