New range of innovative seating options well received at 2018 OT Show
Seating specialist Your Mobility has reported OT Show success, with healthcare professionals giving positive feedback about the company’s new seating range.
Based in Monmouth, Wales, Your Mobility supplies a range of strong, lightweight and portable seating options for elderly and disabled people.
Explaining why the company decided to attend the OT Show this year, Director of Your Mobility Howard Smith said: “I am a great believer that Occupational Therapists are very influential as to what products are recommended or prescribed to help elderly and disabled people live more comfortably.
“Attending the OT show was part of a new promotional campaign aimed at raising awareness and product knowledge to Occupational Therapists and other healthcare professionals.
“Your Mobility has an exciting range of new and updated products that are very much aimed at facilitating or improving the ability for people to continue to live in their own homes or in a care home.”
Alongside its product showcase, Your Mobility’s Chelsea Easy Glide chair was judged by a panel of occupational therapists, who said that it was one of the best personal independent products on display at the 2018 OT Show.
From the success of the Chelsea Easy Glide range, Your Mobility is looking to expand as Howard explained that the company is now looking to recruit additional Sales Agents to address the growing demand for the chair range.
Your Mobility National Product Support Manager Diane Smith said: “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.
“When designing and specifying our chairs we take into account the needs of the user, the carer and the setting to ensure the best solution is achieved because we believe there is so much more to a chair than just being a seat.
“That is why our chair range is very comprehensive and encompassed within the design of all our products is the ability for good positioning, pressure management and falls prevention.”
Diane added that Your Mobility aims to deliver its products within 72 hours of ordering to help people receive the specialist equipment they need as fast as possible.
She also noted that the company now offers a rental option for short-term needs, which aims to tackle the issue of bed blocking in hospitals.
