MedSport

Over the past years Medsport has evolved and has recently been renamed as Ergonomicsdirect to be more representative of the change in our product focus. The decision was also taken to separate the clinical side of the business, Chin and Partners, from the growing Ergonomicsdirect section.

Both businesses will continue to carry out the same fundamentals that Medsport was initially built on; We will continue to service our customers and patients through our expert staff who are certified and specialise within their specific field. We will continue offering a carefully selected range of high quality products to enhance the complete wellbeing of our valued clients.

Ergonomicsdirect and Chin and Partners are proud to continue being of service to our large and growing base of loyal customers.

Medsport was established in 2005 by Jayson Chin, an Orthotist Prothetist with a keen interest in bridging the gap between retail and the medical industry, specifically within the field of sport-related products. The Medsport concept evolved out of Jayson’s Orthotics and Prosthetics practice named Jayson Chin and Associates at the time. Medsport has always had 2 separate “divisions”/focus areas to the business. On the one side was the medical aspect linked to the Orthotics and Prosthetics practice. This included:

  • Rigid and soft sports injury bracing
  • Medical and post-operative bracing
  • Medical compression hosiery
  • Assistive orthopaedic appliances
  • Diabetic products and footwear
  • Custom orthotic devices and shoe inserts.

The other side to the business used to be more sport orientated with a focus on rehabilitation and sporting performance items such as compression wear and exercise gear.

Over time a third field of interest also developed. In an attempt to provide patients suffering from conditions such as lower back and neck pain with a more holistic solution, Jayson also developed an interest in ergonomic products, especially for use in the office environment. The Ergonomic product offering gradually started taking over the sport-related aspect of the business.

Over the years, the ergonomics range evolved into a separate business division called Ergonomicsdirect. With the ever-changing, technologically driven working environment, our ergonomic product range allows businesses or an individual user to adapt their work environment to their individual needs. The range of ergonomic products can significantly contribute towards mitigating the effects of our working environment and in doing so, improving the health, comfort and productivity of the user. Medsport was recently renamed as Ergonomicsdirect (to be more representative of their change in focus) and have moved their showroom to new premises in Northgate Business Park.

During 2017, Jayson Chin and Associates also took on new partners in the practice and was renamed to Chin and Partners INC. In the same year, the decision was taken to “split” the clinical side of the business from the growing Ergonomic-related potion. It was also decided that the 2 business would not share premises in Bree Street any longer. In February of 2018 the 2 components of the business finally split into separate entities, each perusing their own specialised direction.

Both businesses will continue with the same fundamentals that Medsport was initially built on. We will continue to service our customers and patients though our expert staff that are qualified and specialised within their specific field. We will carry on with offering a carefully selected range of high quality products to enhance the complete healthcare experience. Our wide range of specialist products will continue to cover diverse needs as we try to fit into a range of budgets.

Ergonomicsdirect and Chin and Partners are proud to continue being of service to our large and growing base of loyal customers.
