As part of Etac R82’s ongoing educational programme, it will be hosting a series of free workshops for professionals responsible for specification and installation of Molift ceiling track patient hoists.
These ‘Overhead Hoisting Problem Solving Workshops’ will be available across the UK early in 2019 and are focused on solving the challenges of hoist specification and procurement.
Professional attendees will learn methods to resolve practical problems so the most effective and efficient solution is installed in care homes, hospitals, special schools and rehabilitation facilities.
Exact workshop dates, locations and venues to be confirmed. However, regions will include – Midlands, North West, Home Counties and London.
The workshops will focus on theory including: how to assess for an overhead ceiling track hoist; key positioning points for pick up and transfer; considering the needs of the carer; and what is best for the patient/service user.
They will also look at the practical side including: practical hoisting scenarios; mobile hoists versus straight track and traverse systems; how to choose and fit the right sling; hoisting bariatric clients; and repositioning in bed using a hoist.
