Etac Product Specialists and Education Managers to deliver extensive education programme at the OT Show 2021
Etac R82 has changed its name to Etac
Etac, one of the world’s leading developers and providers of ergonomic assistive devices and patient handling equipment, will be hosting sessions in the Showcase and Innovation Theatres as well as presenting a comprehensive series of practical demonstrations on its largest stand ever.

We are delighted that Etac Education Manager and Occupational Therapist, Jane Vorting is hosting a seminar in the Showcase Theatre titled:

"How cognitive impairment can cause anxiety, fear and distressed behaviour during daily moving and handling tasks!"

A person with dementia, brain damage or cognitive impairment can find it difficult to process sensory information which can lead to distressed behaviour. This can be minimised with an appropriate neuropsychological approach and well-planned transfer

Besides the theory, you will have a practical introduction to Etac Patient Handling solutions and technical aids which can help minimise or avoid a stressful situation. We will show how to take advantage of the natural movement and how to increase the level of the calming hormone Oxytocin. (Day 1 & 2 - 10:40 – 11:10, Showcase Theatre)

Matthew Eveleigh, Occupational Therapist, Celtic Therapy & Rehab Services working in partnership with Ki Mobility (who recently joined the Etac family) is hosting two sessions in the Innovation Theatre.

“Wheelchair Cushion Science in a Nutshell: A Primer on the Science that Should be Driving Your Clinical Choices”

Prescribers of wheelchair cushions have historically relied on many factors in deciding which cushions to recommend, including word of mouth, self-perceived comfort/ function, experience, etc. While these can be important, the science of design and materials should be a primary factor in driving cushion selection to allow for comfort and function, while optimally managing pressure. (Day 1 - 13:10 – 13:40, Innovation Theatre)

“Tilting the Odds: Manual Tilt to Improve Rehabilitation Outcomes”

Individuals with neurological disabilities deal with a number of challenges in completing activities of daily living. One of the most significant of those challenges is acquiring a mobility device that allows them to maximise their independence with both mobility and performance of their activities of daily living. For some individuals the adaptive equipment that is often provided may be inadequate to achieve the potential for that participation and independence. (Day 2 - 15:20 - 15:50, Innovation Theatre)
