The Precision Rehab ethos is to provide the highest level of customer service from the first enquiry through to the assessment, product handover and final training and adjustments. This support continues long after the delivery with seating reviews, annual servicing, and product repairs.
Since founding Precision Rehab, Matthew has carefully managed the growth of the business and added to the product range to ensure it offers a choice of products to suit each client’s individual requirements which includes postural needs, product features, professional recommendation, and budget. As part of this growth, Matthew has ensured that every manufacturer he chooses to work with shares his ethos about caring for the client.
Matthew and Emma have a son and daughter who they hope will one day join the family business. Matthew is a qualified FA coach and coaches the Chineham Tigers U9’s Football Team that his son plays for and as part of its support of the local community, Precision Rehab sponsors both the Chineham Tigers teams.

Mike Booker – Product Specialist
Mobile: 07495 736920
Mike Booker is our Product Specialist covering an area from the north of Birmingham into Scotland.
Prior to joining Precision Rehab, Mike worked for several organisations within the mobility industry during which time he was employed in service engineer and assessment roles. This involved working closely with clients, family members and Occupational Therapists which enabled Mike to gain an in-depth knowledge of creating bespoke powerchair solutions which often included the use of specialist controls and seating systems. Since joining Precision Rehab, Mike’s superb knowledge of these systems has been invaluable to our clients.
“Over the years I have developed a particular interest in offering specialist solutions and this can be incredibly rewarding, especially when a client thinks there is no suitable powerchair for them but I have always been able to offer a solution. The Precision Rehab ethos of treating every client as a friend and ensuring the chair fits the person as opposed to the person fitting the chair was a huge factor in me joining the team. This combined with the fantastic range of bespoke powerchairs we offer means every client ultimately ends up with the powerchair that suits all their requirements and lets them live as independently as possible. As every client has very specific needs, no two days are ever the same and I love that” explained Mike.
Outside of work, Mike plays both 5 and 11 aside football and enjoys the occasional round of golf for good measure.
