Etac R82 specialist seating solutions are a resounding success at PMG

Our world renowned specialist seating solutions have generated considerable interest at the Posture and Mobility Group Conference 2018.

PMG Conference 2018, 23rd-25th July 2018, Stand 29, Manchester Central.

Our quality and respected products were displayed at PMG with an educational focus on the clinical benefits of Star Cushions. Using the latest airlock technology, the inflatable Star range provides adaptable stability and optimum pressure distribution for wheelchair users. Through appropriate support of user’s pelvis and thighs, seated asymmetries can be corrected so healthier posture and positioning is achieved.

Jo McConnell, Occupational Therapist and Etac R82 Clinical Manager, hosted a fully-attended presentation which included a case study highlighting how Star cushions assisted with healing of a category 4 pressure injury. International Etac representatives and associates travelled from several worldwide destinations, including Sweden and New Zealand, to support the Etac showcase at PMG.

Other solutions in the Etac range which generated high footfall onto the stand included the Etac Cross 5 medium active and Etac Prio active multifunctional wheelchairs. We are the proud UK distributor for SPEX seating solutions from Medifab which also attracted healthy attention.

In terms of paediatric products, the selection of R82 equipment on display at PMG was equally as popular particularly the Kudu wheelchair and Cricket buggy.

This year, for those who experienced the stability of Star Cushions, there was a free prize draw to win a case of contemporary, fine wine – congratulations to the winner, Gail Moss.
