New specialist equipment range

Etac R82 demonstrated an extensive new range of specialist equipment for disabled children and adults at The OT Show, which was held at the NEC from 23-24 November.

Etac R82 supplies the Etac, Molift, Immedia, R82, Convaid and newly acquired Star Cushion brands in the UK. They deliver assistive seating, standing, walking, toileting, bathing, transfer and daily living solutions that are ergonomic and effective.

The 2016 OT Show provided a platform for the UK debut of several new products that were recently launched at the Rehacare Exhibition in Düsseldorf, Germany. Innovative transfer solutions such as the Etac Turner Pro, Molift Raiser and QuickRaiser 205 were demonstrated to many visiting OTs along with the new Immedia SatinSheet systems, Star Cushion and SPEX seat and back cushions. 

The experienced product advisors on the Etac R82 stand were supported by Helena Poulton, advanced practitioner OT. Helena offered clinical expertise and was able to demonstrate to fellow healthcare peers the unique benefits associated with selecting Etac R82 equipment. She was busy throughout the event explaining how her support role with Etac R82, along with input from other associated therapists, is ensuring the very best product development and provision.

Jon Preater, Etac R82 managing director, comments: “Our impressive range of new products for children and adults with disabilities has generated high levels of enquiries from professionals attending the OT Show.

"Through a highly considered approach to design and ergonomics, our solutions ensure ability is maximised for users whilst risk is reduced for carers. We continually listen and engage with end users and therapists to ensure our products truly resolve individual needs in an appropriate manner and help to achieve positive outcomes for all.”
