Founder, Dr. Motion Innovative Technology

Luck Li

A registered physiotherapist with a special interest in restore mobility in individuals through rehabilitation. After 30 years of professional practice in Australia, New Zealand and in Hong Kong, I wish to further serve the community by helping the disadvantaged to Move Well and Stay Well. Over the last few years, I have been involving in the wheelchair user community and rewarded with optimism and perseverance. But I also see unjust situations of poor wheelchair quality and after-sales services that are causing unnecessary frustrations to wheelchair users. Such situation has long existed and been penalizing the quiet and disadvantaged group of our society to cause further physical and emotional damages. I am determined to rectify the situation and have established a strong wheelchair sales and services team within DR. Motion Innovative Technology Limited to provide unprecedented quality wheelchairs and services to users.
