Industry supplier and distributor Yorkshire Care Equipment is releasing a new 88-page eBook it has written containing hints and tips for healthcare professionals on proper seating assessment.
The Harrogate-based outfit hopes its new resource, which it is previewing on its website and giving away for free, will help to deliver good specialist seating across the board.
The eBook combines theoretical knowledge and practical experience on all matters of specialist seating.
With advice and tips on dozens of postural conditions and many kinds of chairs, Yorkshire Care has aimed to create a one-stop guide for healthcare professionals to refer to when specifying seating for clients.
Padraig Finn, band six physiotherapist at Yorkshire Care, said that the company wanted to create something people can refer to when working with clients with different needs.
“We wrote the Healthcare Professional’s Complete Guide to Specialist Seating Assessments because we wanted to make sure everyone is on the same page when it comes to seating and all its various configurations and benefits.”
The company has worked with more than 19,000 occupational therapists, physiotherapists, and other healthcare professionals over the years to deliver bespoke equipment solutions to a wide variety of clients.
Gordon Hulbert, one of Yorkshire Care’s most senior seating assessors, said: “Our team has so much knowledge to offer when it comes to seating, so we wanted to write a definitive guide that people could turn to when they needed extra information.
“We’ve looked at clinical and scientific studies and compared this with our experiences in the field to make sure that those who use this guide are providing the best solutions to their clients.”
