Seating specialist looks to engage with OTs and healthcare professionals at upcoming show
Your Mobility is exhibiting at this year’s OT Show in November as the company looks to enhance its brand and product exposure amongst occupational therapists.
Having launched a new and updated range of products, the Herefordshire-based company says it is now keen to engage with healthcare professionals as part of a new promotional campaign.
Discussing the decision to exhibit at the OT Show, Lyndon Duke, Founder of Your Mobility, commented: “We are specifically looking to raise awareness of our products and demonstrate the very comprehensive, solution-based benefits they offer to both users and carers alike.”
According to Lyndon, those with impaired mobility often spend long periods in chairs, so enhancing the ease of mobility, comfort and pressure management when specifying the right chair is essential.
“People come in all sorts of shapes and sizes and there are literally scores of differing physical and mental conditions that can impair or limit mobility,” he continued.
“That is why our chair range is very comprehensive and encompassed within the design of all our products is the ability for good positioning and pressure management.”
The company says visitors to its stand will be able to test the new seating range, providing healthcare professionals with an opportunity to experience the products first-hand as well as benefit from educational activities taking place.
Diane Smith, National Product Support Manager at Your Mobility, said: “We will be showcasing our latest chair range and providing a series of training and educational demonstrations and workshops on the unrivalled, solution-based benefits available.”
In particular says Diane, the company will demonstrate the ease of transferring in and out of the chairs as well as showcase the ranges’ adaptability and manoeuvrability through narrow doorways and passages, which are key considerations for healthcare professionals.
“This is also great timing, as the NHS and social services look to address the problem of delayed hospital discharges or ‘bed blocking’,” she continued.
The British Healthcare Trades Association (BHTA) recently put forward some suggestions to improve the issue of ‘bed blocking’ (or Delayed Transfer of Care), including more occupational therapists to deliver better and quicker assessments, better integration of care and social services and improvements to procurement policies.
Your Mobility can be visited on stand A58 at the OT Show, which is held at the NEC in Birmingham from the 21st-22nd of November.
