A medical supplier is celebrating after a national business awards win.
Embryonyx, supplier of the Happylegs seated walking machine, which aids circulation by gently exercising the legs, was shortlisted as Funding Champions in GrowthAccelerator’s inaugural Brave and the Bold business awards.
The Newcastle-based company edged out fellow nominees to scoop the prize at a ceremony in London.
Awarded for remarkable fundraising and investment, The Funding Champion Award recognises companies that have ensured the best use of their resources, putting all money raised to the best possible use to further business growth and ambitions.
Managing director Angus Long said: “Winning The Funding Champion award for our work in bringing Happylegs to market is a massive achievement for us, as we’ve not only worked exceptionally hard to do it, but because we really believe that this is a product that can help people living with debilitating illnesses such as poor circulation, diabetic neuropathy, thrombosis (DVT) and arthritis.”
Happylegs uses gentle, continuous motion to exercise the legs, easing circulatory issues and providing stimulation to those unable to partake in traditional exercise, either through illness or lifestyle issues.
