New for 2018, Naidex will be offering a ‘Moving and Handling Lab’ which provides CPD-accredited equipment demonstrations for healthcare professionals. These workshops will provide an invaluable opportunity for physiotherapists, carers and moving and handling specialists to learn the latest techniques for safer people transfers. To enhance the experience for all attendees, Etac R82 is loaning a selection of products from its world-class range which will include:

  • Molift Raiser with Raiser Belt
  • Immedia SatinSheet in-bed system
  • Immedia 4wayGlide in-bed system for complex needs
  • Immedia Cloverfoot
  • Immedia Positioning Wedge
  • Immedia MultiGlide Glove

These solutions are highly regarded within the field of Moving and Handling as they encompass outstanding ergonomics, design and quality. Each educational sessions will outline the effective use of this equipment so that comfort, dignity and support is maximised for service users. Equally, safe working practices for carers will also be highlighted so that the risk of musculoskeletal injury is minimised.
