For two days next week, occupational therapists from around the country will converge on the OT Show to get hands-on with some of the latest mobility, handling and access solutions the market has to offer. Among the 270-plus exhibitors will be ranks of top equipment suppliers jostling to show why their products should be specified by OTs.
New changes, features and social events have been brought in to aid networking among OTs and other health professionals. On top of that, the show claims it will offer world-class education delivered by leading doctors and experts in the field.
Equipment highlights will include TGA Mobility’s recently-launched StrongBack wheelchair, its WHILL powerchair and wheelchair powerpacks. New to the market the StrongBack incorporates a contoured backrest for effective lumbar support.
Mobility supplier Invacare will also be fronting a new website dedicated entirely to its Safe Patient Handling range. Alongside the new website, it will be displaying its new product videos and handing out ‘Community Life’ survival kits, including kneeling pads and thermal mugs, to help healthcare professionals working in the community and residential care. The supplier will also be exhibiting the Aquatec Ocean family of shower chair commodes, along with the new Aquatec Pure Bidet.
Additionally, the OT Show will be the stage for stairlift manufacturer Stannah to exhibit a range of new products. Visitors can review and experience the latest equipment and using Stannah’s augmented reality apps see how customers can visualise products in their own home before making a purchase.
The OT Show will take place at the NEC on 22-23 November (halls 9 and 10). Registration is free.
