Trade professionals visiting Kidz to Adulz Middle later this month will be offered a seminar delivered by Etac R82 designed to educate on paediatric hoisting equipment and techniques.
There are multiple scenarios where hoisting children can be challenging and the seminar will explore a selection of possibilities which can help improve the hoisting experience.
The hoisting seminar at Kidz Middle will provide a brief overview of moving and handling of children however further in-depth sessions are available on request.
Colin Williams, from Etac, will demonstrate how support, comfort and safety can be maximised by using appropriate sized or shaped sling bars.
The learning outcomes will be: how to select the right equipment for a hoisting activity; appreciation of how the right selection will maximise comfort, support and safety; and awareness of how different options will increase success in more challenging hoisting situations.
Williams has worked in the healthcare industry for almost 25 years with a speciality in moving and handling people.
Kidz to Adultz Middle is one of a series of regional exhibitions that showcases the latest products and services that assist disabled children, young adults and their families.
