Yorkshire Ambulance Service responds to nearly 800,000 emergencies every year, and around 10% of these are related to falls. With the Raizer now on-hand to help care home staff get residents back on their feet, the Service is hoping that this will reduce the number of emergency services callouts.
"Reval Ruby makes it possible for people who are bedbound to participate, by rubbing soap on them by themselves, even just a little bit, which they don’t normally get the chance to do. There have been occasions where people have been reluctant to have a bath at all, so we’ve suggested the Ruby and they’ve loved it. The bonus is that you have a content staff team who are happy to take up the challenge of encouraging reluctant customers to have a bath. There was one gentleman who told us that he didn’t fancy that at all’ but afterwards said ‘thank you, I feel so much better for that’.
Specialist seating company Yorkshire Care Equipment is today launching the ProSpec - a new hospital chair designed in conjunction with NHS hospitals.
The company is hoping that the ProSpec can become the new 'go-to' chair for all hospitals due to its innovative design that includes various positioning options, easy-to-use functions, and completely infection-control friendly surfaces to minimise the chances of cross-contamination.
“You cannot under estimate how complicated it can be to specify a hoist system that allows for exceptional freedom of movement. Chris Prescott of Reval is absolutely worth his weight in gold when it comes to specifiying ceiling hoists for smooth integration into just about any setting, domestic or otherwise. You know your in safe hands with Reval."
For the first time, family-run care and mobility aid supplier Yorkshire Care Equipment have launched their own care chair - the Lento.
The company has spent two years designing and perfecting the Lento, and consequently have created a care chair that can suit the needs of up to 80% of the population.
