Modern Mobility celebrated their 21st anniversary in August 2018, including over 15 years at Fosse Park shopping centre.

Situated in the corner by Primark side entrance, our shop offers unrestricted parking space for visitors wishing to look into the huge range of mobility aids we offer, or even simply to hire a wheelchair or electric scooter for use on their Fosse Park shopping expedition.

Despite our contemporary name, we are extremely proud to be so well known for our old fashioned family business style, honest and straightforward with no gimmicks. We care a great deal about our customers and their disabilities and requirements, it’s precisely the reason for our flawless reputation.

We will always, without fail, advise you on what is right for you – not us.
