More training dates added as Etac R82 engages healthcare professionals

Etac R82, a specialist in Scandinavian-inspired assistive technology, is now offering healthcare professionals two extra dates for its Seating Assessment Training (SAT) programme.

SAT is a free training course aimed at paediatric OTs and physiotherapists who want to develop their knowledge of seating principles and problem-solving solutions. It offers the opportunity for collaboration between therapists and equipment providers so that individual therapy needs can be met.

Each training session will utilise relevant case studies so that training can be shaped according to the requirements of attendees.

In addition, the programme will be hosted by leading occupational therapists, namely Joanne McConnell, OT and Category Manager for Mobility and Pressure Care at Etac R82, and Helena Poulton, a highly specialist OT.

R82 UK Ltd is an Etac Group company supplying R82, Etac, Molift, Star Cushions, Immedia and Convaid branded products in the UK and Ireland.

The company offers a range of assistive products for disabled children and adults including wheelchairs, buggies, standing, walking, toileting and bathing aids as well as manual and mechanical transfer aids.

The programme will run on Thursday 12th July from 9:30am4pm and Thursday 13th September from 9:30am4pm at Unit D4A in Coombswood Business Park East.
