A comprehensive range of examples from the Etac, R82, Molift and Convaid brands were demonstrated to significant numbers of families and healthcare professionals. Our stand was busy for the majority of the day with visitors keen to engage with our friendly and knowledgeable Etac R82 team. Product demonstrations and one-to-one advice were provided throughout the event as parents and OTs took advantage of the professional information available. Individualised solutions were discussed and informative case studies and 'work books' were handed out – detailing the clinical and lifestyle benefits of choosing Etac R82 equipment. The show also witnessed the launch of our latest dynamic x:panda seating system - the x:panda Evolution.
Launched in 2007, the original R82 x:panda seating system has become one of the largest selling modular seats worldwide. The x:panda helps children, with a range of conditions such as Cerebral Palsy, to maintain neutral pelvic positioning during involuntary extension and offers contoured support to the spine. Through a multitude of adjustable features, the x:panda facilitates greater comfort and stability yet allows movement for active play and motor skill development. Each of the four sizes have the flexibility to adapt to changing postural requirements as children grow and develop so offering a future-proofed, clinically effective solution. The new x:panda Evolution builds on this successful heritage to provide a seating solution that takes paediatric ergonomics to a new level.
Other paediatric products from the Etac R82 portfolio that delivered high levels of interest included the R82 Cricket buggy, Kudu paediatric wheelchair, Stingray and Meerkat dynamic stander. Convaid Rodeo and Cruiser buggies also provided a popular talking point for parents seeking ergonomic assistive products that combine specialist support with aesthetic Danish design. These products, combined with the depth of expertise on the stand, resulted in one of the most successful shows in 2018 for us. With our assessment-led service, client and OT-centric attitude and strong educational programme, we once again reiterated ourselves as the proven specialist for positive outcomes.
We will be next exhibiting at the OT Show, NEC, 21-22 November.
