The Story Behind the Glideboard

The Glideboard is not just another product; it’s a labour of love and expertise. Chris Buckingham, the founder of Buckingham Healthcare, has over 15 years of experience as an occupational therapist, previous to starting the business. Her passion for solving real-life problems led to the creation of the Glideboard.
