About us

PhysioEquipment (a trading name for PhysioPod® UK Ltd) is directed and run by Sisters, Julie Soroczyn and Mary Fickling who are both very enthusiastic and passionate about healthcare.

Company incorporation took place in 2006, when the company was set up to exclusively supply DEEP OSCILLATION®, an unknown treatment modality in the UK and the Republic of Ireland.  In 2011, the PhysioPod® company name was trademarked, due to its recognition within healthcare and in 2012, they became approved NHS Suppliers, supplying the therapy into many NHS Lymphoedema services.  The elite sporting world have embraced the therapy as have many private practitioners and patients managing Lymphoedema and Lipoedema at home and abroad.

Ten years on, they were delighted to receive the ‘Global Healthcare and Pharmaceutical Award for Healthcare Innovation' with DEEP OSCILLATION®, just one of the high quality, cutting-edge products available from PHYSIOMED ELEKTROMEDIZIN AG, who hold a very strong position in Germany and export their products to 83 countries worldwide.

Julie Soroczyn heads up the company as Managing Director, with a wide and varied background including retail management, hospitality and an instructor of dance and aerobics. As a natural progression, Julie qualified in complementary therapies and sports massage and was introduced to DEEP OSCILLATION® by a sports lecturer in 2006. .

Julie's Sister, Mary Fickling has experience in both retail and office management and finance within the TV/Film industry sector and the motor trade. Combined with Mary's life-coaching skills, this made for a uniquely entwined and solid business union, built upon trust and driven passionately by a mission to supply high quality, clinically proven, healthcare products. Their dynamic partnership is now relied upon by many practitioners and patients, whom appreciate their efficient and timely responses to all enquiries with their open, helpful and friendly manner.
