A division of the Scandinavian Etac Group, Etac R82 will be debuting a range of mobility equipment solutions and educational programmes at the OT Show in November.

The new products on display at the exhibition will include both adult and paediatric launches as the company looks to raise its profile amongst occupational therapists and healthcare professionals.

Adult product launches

Etac R82’s Molift Raiser Pro can be seen on the Adaptions Trail at the exhibition, which the company describes as a next-generation transfer platform with “cutting-edge” ergonomics. It will also be showcasing the Molift Air 200, 350 and 500 ceiling hoists, which deliver “unsurpassed” transform performance, especially when used with the Molift Rail systems.

Also on display will be the Molift Quattro, a free-standing traverse gantry system, and the Etac My-Loo, an accessible toilet seat with “clever” features for higher levels of safety, hygiene and comfort.

Its final new adult product on display at the OT Show is the Immedia E-Board Oval, a flexible transfer board with anti-friction technology for “seamless” horizontal transfers.

Paediatric product launches

On the Paediatric Trail, Etac R82 will showcase its enhanced x:panda Evolution, which is designed for children with complex individual needs.

The company will also be exhibiting the R82 Flamingo Potty Frame Accessory, which when combined with the Flamingo seat, offers a free-standing potty or shower chair.

Educational courses

Etac R82 will also provide information about its latest free professional training courses on its stand.

Courses include the Seating Assessment Training (SATs), which is aimed at occupational therapists and physiotherapists to further their knowledge of seating principles and problem-solving solutions; and Overhead Hoisting Problem Solving Workshops, which will be available across the UK in early 2019 and focus on solving the challenges of hoist specification and procurement.

The company can be visited on stand C70 at the OT Show, which takes place on the 21st-22nd of November at the NEC in Birmingham.
