Mobility equipment firm looks to educate health professionals

Etac R82 has worked with highly specialist physiotherapist, Frances George, to deliver a ‘Learning through Movement’ educational seminar to large numbers of healthcare professionals at Kidz-to-Adultz-South. 

George’s seminar focused on the importance of static and dynamic posture assessment and how making supportive equipment unstable can advance therapy goals.

George illustrated several key factors including the assessment of posture, movement and motor skill progression; and applying knowledge to clinical practice. Following her presentation, she offered a Q&A session and the opportunity to discuss the topic on a one-to-one basis.

Additional educational material was available on the company’s stand with R82 ‘workbooks’ on offer, providing packages of content regarding individual products. They include product information, case studies, clinical benefits and ‘how to’ videos – the latest edition focusing on the Crocodile walker.

In terms of products, the Etac R82 team received high levels of enquiries regarding the new R82 Cricket which is a lightweight, ergonomic and easy-to-fold buggy for children. The Convaid buggies and fabric-based Scallop seating system also attracted interest.

Etac R82 is a manufacturer of assistive products for children and adults with disabilities. Etac, R82, Molift, Immedia, Convaid and Star Cushion products are supplied by the company along with educational information and advice for families and professionals.
