Attendees were able to discuss individual client needs with Etac product specialists and discover the latest innovations within the Etac portfolio. Single-handed care was a common topic along with long-term strategies that deliver sustainable, cost effective care. The durability and efficient re-issuing of Etac products was highlighted to illustrate the long-term value gained by specifying solutions from this established specialist.
