In a nutshell

Waterproof TVs aren’t just an interesting product, they lend themselves to interesting projects. In this case, we were asked to install a waterproof TV in a hydrotherapy room to help an ex-professional rugby player through his rehabilitation.

The story

Sometimes it’s a simple request, e.g. can you recommend a bathroom TV for my new en suite? But when ex-professional rugby player, Matt Hampson got in touch, he had a far more specific request…

Matt dislocated his neck in a scrum, while playing for the England Under-21 team back in 2005. He was left paralyzed.

But Matt is not what you’d call a quitter. These days he divides his time between raising money for spinal care and his ongoing rehabilitation.

Matt has redesigned his home to cater for his special needs. He now spends several hours of the week in his bathroom and hydrotherapy room. The hydrotherapy is great. It helps to soothe and strengthen Matt’s back – but that doesn’t mean it’s not a tedious process! So Matt got in touch to see if we could help alleviate the boredom for him…

We showed Matt through our range of waterproof televisions. He liked the 19” Classic Bathroom Television and we carried out a flush-to-the-wall installation for him, next to the shower area in his wet room.

Matt tells us that it has really helped make his hydrotherapy sessions easier to endure now that he can watch TV or listen to music.


“Awesome product!!! The television is just what I was looking for. It certainly has the wow factor and looks fantastic all flush and built into the wall. Great picture and sound quality too”
