Seating supplier to engage healthcare professionals with free access to vital clinical seating handbook
Seating Matters, a Northern Ireland-based designer and manufacturer of a range of clinical, therapeutic seating solutions, has published the fifth edition of The Clinician’s Seating Handbook and is offering the resource to healthcare professionals for free.
Written and published by Martina Tierney, an Occupational Therapist and Clinical Director of Seating Matters, a decade ago, the book has proven to be essential reading for clinicians and therapists, being used in universities and clinical practice globally.
According to the company, the fifth edition contains a number of useful updated advice and clinical research for healthcare professionals, including moving and handling advice, pressure injury staging guidelines, as well as paediatric & bariatric assessment tips.
Discussing the updated edition, Martina commented “It’s my goal to change the world through healthcare seating. The new edition of The Clinician’s Seating Handbook allows my fellow clinicians to refine their skills and use the most up to date clinical practices to do just that.”
Typically costing £24 on Amazon, the company is offering the textbook for free to therapists and clinicians, noting that its goal is to share best practice in the industry.
“It’s not important to us if we sell books or not, what’s important is that best practice and new evidence is in the hands of those who can make a real difference to patients’ lives day to day,” said Martin Tierney, Director of Seating Matters.
