Abacus Healthcare will be demonstrating its popular Gemini power assisted platform bath and offering the chance to win a new ‘Tiny the Turtle’ cuddly toy at Rise 4 Disability.
7th September: Rise 4 Disability, Stand C7, Kent Showground, Maidstone, ME14 3JF, 10am - 4pm, free admission.
The Rise 4 Disability regional exhibitions provide an opportunity for parents, healthcare professionals and disabled individuals to see the latest assistive products and services for specialist needs. Abacus Healthcare will be exhibiting the popular Gemini bath at the latest Rise 4 Disability on stand C7 and within the ‘Speed Sourcing’ sessions. Visitors will be able to experience first-hand why the Gemini is a proven and trusted solution for safe and comfortable bathing.
Carers and disabled bathers benefit from ‘double lift’ powered height adjustment and an integrated changing and drying platform so awkward transfers and manual moving and handling can be minimized. This two-stage variable height functionality is unique to the Gemini – firstly the bath sides elevate to immerse the bather and then the whole bath raises for easier interaction and care. The Gemini is first choice for many OTs and families as it ensures carers can avoid injury from excessive bending and lifting and bathers benefit from greater eye-level engagement.
In addition to showcasing the Gemini, the friendly and experienced Abacus product specialists will be on hand to offer one-to-one advice regarding individual bathing needs. Free ‘#BathingIsBetter’ advice guides and case studies will be available illustrating how Abacus products and comprehensive support services are proven to improve lives nationwide.
For children visiting the show Abacus will be offering a free prize draw to win a Tiny the Turtle soft toy – Trevor the Turtle’s recent off-spring! The new baby Turtle mascot from Abacus can be won by visiting stand C7 – perfect for cuddles after bath-time.
