Abacus to showcase assistive bathing portfolio and latest OT-led education at Kidz Middle
Award-winning Abacus Specialist Bathroom Solutions will be presenting its new Aries 2000 bath, Gemini 2000 bath and latest educational seminar at Kidz to Adultz Middle.
Abacus is a specialist manufacturer, supplier and installer of assistive bathing solutions for adults and children with reduced mobility.
At Kidz Middle, Abacus will be providing live demonstrations of its latest power-assisted baths whilst explaining its complete bathroom service and offering one-to-one advice. Free literature will be available including client case studies, training courses, bath ownership guides and information to assist with successful DFG funding applications.
This educational content will be supported by a bathing seminar delivered by OT Adam Ferry in association with Abacus Specialist Bathroom Solutions.
The seminar – ‘Bathing and Sleep – joining the dots’ – will focus on the link between bathing and sleep, and how a good night-time routine can improve sleep for children, their family and carers. It will incorporate both professional and personal experiences whilst reflecting on bathing as an occupation to support clinical reasoning and evidence-based practice.
As well as having a greater appreciation of the link between bathing and sleep, attendees will develop a greater understanding of equipment available to support bathing as a meaningful occupation.
On stand E14, the Gemini 2000 bath will be displayed by Abacus – winner of the ‘Excellence in Caring’ award at last year’s OT Show. This hi-lo, two-metre bath is a larger version of the popular Gemini 1700 and provides future-proofed bathing for disabled adults and children.
Its unique ‘double lift action’ and integrated changing, drying and bathing platform ensures a reduction in the number of bather transfers required for increased user comfort, safety and dignity.
Alongside the Gemini, the new and equally spacious Aries 2000 variable height bath will be on display at the event. Debuting at its first Kidz show, the Aries 2000 incorporates either a powered or manual bather transfer seat for bathers who require greater postural support.
Both of the latest Abacus baths incorporate pioneering BioCote antimicrobial technology which provides 99.9 percent protection against harmful superbugs. Integrated during the manufacturing process, this infection control innovation significantly reduces the risk from Influenza H1N1, E.coli, Salmonella and antibiotic resistance microbes.
Finally, young visitors will be able to enter the popular prize draw to win a cuddly toy version of the sought-after company mascot, Trevor the Turtle.
‘Bathing and Sleep – joining the dots’ will take place in Seminar Room 1 at 1.00pm at Kidz Middle.
Kidz to Adultz Middle will take place on the 4th of March, 9.00am-4.30pm in the Ericsson Exhibition Hall at the Ricoh Arena, Coventry.https://thiis.co.uk/abacus-to-showcase-assistive-bathing-portfolio-and-latest-ot-led-education-at-kidz-middle/https://i1.wp.com/thiis.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2020/02/Abacus_Aries2000.jpg?fit=900%2C633&ssl=1https://i1.wp.com/thiis.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2020/02/Abacus_Aries2000.jpg?resize=150%2C150&ssl=1Events & ExhibitionsNewsroomTrade Newsabacus,Abacus Specialist Bathroom Solutions,Aries 2000 bath,assistive bathing,assistive bathing supplier,Gemini 2000 bath,Kate Sheehan,Kidz exhibitions,Kidz Middle,Kidz to Adultz MiddleAward-winning Abacus Specialist Bathroom Solutions will be presenting its new Aries 2000 bath, Gemini 2000 bath and latest educational seminar at Kidz to Adultz Middle.
