Easy Medical Devices at The OT Show 2018

Easy Medical Devices (EZMD) are delighted to be attending The OT Show 2018, 21st - 22nd November @ The NEC on stand B38 & introduce the UK OT community to our unique range of innovative self aid devices which are designed to help solve some of the daily challenges experienced by people with reduced mobility or disability.

Joining us at our stand will be Lynn Homma, an occupational therapist from the Netherlands, who specialises in helping patients become independent with a large number of daily tasks made difficult by a lack of mobility. Lynn is looking forward to meeting with her fellow OT's in the UK and sharing her practical experiences of using our life changing tools with her patients.

Our aim is to create awareness of the benefits of our solutions in an effort to help those who help others solve some of the difficult daily challenges faced by persons with mobility issues and disabilities.

Started in the Netherlands in 2010 by lead engineer and company founder, Leon van de Werve, we develop devices for the effortless application and removal of compression stockings and portable transfer systems for wheelchair users for the car and the home. Our devices have been recommended for use to patients by a huge number of OT's in the Netherlands and we are now officially launching our range within the UK and Ireland. Our mission is to help to restore personal independence to individuals and to offer a helping hand to those who provide personal care and assistance to others.

In the UK alone there are about 3/4 million people who fight to get their compression stockings on and off everyday. It is not an easy task and many people have to rely on others such as friends or private medical staff to assist them. We believed there should be a better way to do this and have developed a number of unique solutions to the problem regardless of whether you are an individual user or a care giver.

Our range of compression stocking application and removal aids includes;

  • EZ-Compression Stocking Gun®On - The world's only electrically powered device for quick and easy application of compression stockings . Designed for carers and end users who find it challenging to manage the daily effort of putting on difficult to use compression stockings.

  • EZ-Compression Stocking Gun®Off An innovative electrically powered device for quick and easy removal of compression stockings . Designed for carers and end users who find it challenging to manage the daily effort of removing difficult to use compression stockings.

  • EZ-Compression Stocking Gun®Stand - An accompaniment to the EZ-Compression Stocking Gun®On, it is recommended for those with reduced mobility, people who can not lift their legs easily and people who may lack the full use of a hand or arm.

There are over 1 million wheelchair users in the UK, for whom transport is an absolute necessity. Traditional automotive wheelchair systems require complex and irreversible modifications to a vehicle and limits wheelchair users to the use of only one car. We set out to solve that problem by designing a system which can be used in any car without any modification. The only limitation is there must be space in the boot for a wheelchair. Additional accessories enable further uses around the house.

Our range of Portable transfer systems for wheelchair users includes;

  • EZ-Lift®300E – Weighing only 12 kilograms, the portable EZ-Lift®300E can transfer wheelchair users of up to 120 kilos from their wheelchair to a car passenger seat. The system can be installed in almost any car in around 2 minutes and requires no modification to the vehicle. The device can be carried in the boot of any car until it is needed. A range of optional adapters allow this device to also be used around the home.

  • EZ-Lift® Sleep adapter - This adapter allows you to use the EZ-Lift® as a wheelchair to bed transfer system.

  • EZ-Lift® At home adapter - This adapter allows you to use the EZ-Lift® as a wheelchair to regular chair transfer system.

Lynn and the team look forward to meeting you all at the show and in having the opportunity to personally demonstrate the advantages of our products for the first time to our friends in the occupational therapy community in the UK ! Don't forget to come and meet us at stand B38 :-)
