Specialist bathroom supplier, Abacus, has said it enjoyed “exceptionally high” visitor footfall at Kidz to Adultz North in Manchester last week.
Abacus is a trusted manufacturer of power-assisted baths that aim to deliver accessible bathing to disabled bathers.
At Kidz to Adultz North, Abacus demonstrated its offering to disabled bathers, families and healthcare professionals.
Its proposition, combining quality baths, complete support and OT-endorsed clinical content, produced “significant enquiries” throughout the event – highlighting Abacus’ mission to be the ‘go to’ specialist for assisted baths.
Abacus works closely with Kate Sheehan, a respected OT with over 30 years of experience.
At Kidz North, she delivered a seminar entitled ‘Bathing – the right to play’ which explored ‘bathtime play’ as an occupation and considered how legislation and clinical reasoning can be used to support the necessity of a bath for better client well-being.
Following her presentation, Sheehan joined the Abacus team to assist families and therapists with one-to-one advice regarding safe inclusive bathing.
Demonstrations of the dual lift Gemini bath, with integrated bathing, changing and drying platform, were provided so visitors could clearly understand how this proven solution eliminates many awkward wet transfers.
It facilitates eye-level contact between carers and bathers and ensures personal hygiene can be completed efficiently and effectively.
