|The Tokyo 2020 Paralympics are finally underway and Team GB are already performing well with a number of medals won over the last few days.|
At ProActive we are proud to be supporting Sophie Kamlish, Stef Reid, Richard Whitehead and Jonnie Peacock as they prepare and compete in Tokyo. We wish them well in their competitions over the coming week….
Richard Nieveen is also part of Team GB having been accredited by the British Paralympic Association as Team Prosthetist and is in Tokyo to support all of Team GB’s prosthetic needs.
The final tweaks and preparations are done and the athletes are transferring from the holding camp to the Paralympic village prior to competing in their events.
We are posting stories from Richard Nieveen, in Tokyo, on our social media and TikTok – please follow the links at the top of this page for some great insights from the holding camp and Paralympic village.

We are recruiting! We are looking for a well-motivated, experienced clinical prosthetist to join our expanding team of specialists.
If you would be interested in becoming part of our elite clinical team committed to giving the very best to our patients, please head over to our job opportunities page.
It has been a privilege to work with these exceptional athletes who have shown determination and resilience to reach their goals in what has been a very challenging time.
This year selection for the games has been very difficult due to the restricted number of places in the team, which makes their achievements even greater.
We will continue to support them all the way to Tokyo 2020 and in Tokyo where Richard Nieveen will be Team Prosthetist in the GB Paralympic team.
We will continue to update you on their preparations and performance on our website and via social media.
Covid-19 Precautionary Measures from 19th July 2021
Following the announcement by the government that England will move to the final stage of easing Covid-19 restrictions on July 19th 2021, we have carried out a risk assessment of the situation at our clinic and decided in the interests of our patients, visitors and team that we will continue with some precautionary procedures, as detailed in this link.
It is our view that although legal restrictions will end and the risk of serious illness is lower due to the vaccination programme, the prevalence of virus is high, as is the risk of transmission. To mitigate this we have decided it is sensible to continue with precautions to prevent transmission and to reduce the chance of our facilities needing to close if the whole team are required to self isolate.
These procedures will be reviewed regularly and updated in accordance with Government and WHO advice.
ProActive is 20! Today marks our 20th Anniversary and over the course of 2021 we will be celebrating by sharing some of our favourite memories of the last 20 years, chatting to old friends and new and looking ahead to the next 20 years.
We are pleased to announce that we are looking for two new members to join our team.
We are actively recruiting for a prosthetist and a technician to support our busy clinic.
