Etac R82, which is a supplier of assistive equipment, said it received ‘high numbers of healthcare professionals’ at its recent seating seminar at Kidz to Adultz South.
Held at the Farnborough International Exhibition & Conference Centre for the first time, Kidz South was well attended by young people with disabilities, families and professionals.
The venue provided the opportunity for a healthy number of visitors to see the latest assistive products and services from leading specialists.
Etac R82 said it experienced a “positive and busy show and was delighted to meet a number of new individuals who had not attended a Kidz event previously”.
As part of the educational programme available for professionals at Kidz to Adultz South, Etac R82’s latest seating seminar, ‘Paediatric Postural Seating Assessment Tips’, presented by OT, Jo McConnell, received strong attendance.
Ms McConnell’s seminar focused on motor development both in terms of milestones and the early signs of impaired movement.
It reviewed posture and the need for specialist equipment for children with disabilities.
Feedback from Ms McConnell’s professional peers was complementary and they thanked her for delivering the presentation.
