About us

Our history

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 various products, including manual and power wheelchairs, scooters, walkers/rollators, canes, bath benches, commodes, aluminium underarm crutches, lift chairs, electric beds and more.

Previous owners of Merits Australia, Ian & Yvonne Rothall, purchased Scooter World Australia in November 1998 and 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,  the company grew and expanded 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. 

Changing the name from Scooter World Australia P/L to Merits Australia P/L under the umbrella company RothCorp Australia, reflected their pride in the Merits products we sell. 

In September 2023 – K Care Healthcare Solutions acquired Merits Australia P/L and, with its extensive dealer network reach and healthcare solutions expertise, is excited about the future of this exciting brand.
