Assistive products on show at Rehacare

The Etac Group, the Scandinavian specialist in assistive products for disabled adults and children, will be delivering its largest ever multiple-brand, new product launch at Rehacare 2016.

The Etac Group is highly respected for its Scandinavian-inspired products that deliver greater independence, care and comfort to disabled people worldwide. It delivers an award-winning range of brands: Etac, R82, Convaid, Immedia and Molift. This quality, ergonomic equipment includes manual wheelchairs, supportive seating, patient transfer solutions, bathing and toileting products and aids for daily living. At Rehacare and alongside its existing range, the Etac Group will be unveiling its largest number of new products ever including:

NEW Etac S.P.A. Collection (Safe. Personal. Assistance) - This new stylish ergonomic range of bathroom adaptations comprises of the Etac Rex folding toilet arm, Etac Relax wall-mounted folding shower seat and Etac Flex modular grab rail.

NEW R82 Cricket - This lightweight and compact, easily foldable buggy delivers pioneering levels of adaptable support for a child and assistance for parents and carers.

NEW R82 Stingray - With its unique 180-degree swivel feature to face a child forwards or backward, this pioneering lightweight buggy provides pelvic support, greater comfort and encourages better posture through market-leading adjustability.   

NEW R82 Flamingo High-low - This new height-adjustable toilet/bathing chair offers greater control to carers and extra support to young users for a better experience in the bathroom.

NEW R82 Wombat Living - Designed in close co-operation with disabled children and therapists, this innovative activity chair provides utmost support and adjustment for a growing child.

NEW R82 Scallop - The fabric-based wrap-around design aids floor sitting and offers adaptable support when sitting in a chair – outstanding Danish design for semi- and non-ambulant children.

NEW Star air cushions - As the new exclusive distributor of Star Cushions, Etac will be launching a range of seating-based products for wheelchairs that incorporate multi-celled air cushions for world-class pressure care and improved postural support.

NEW Etac Clean - Etac’s award-winning Clean shower commode chair has been enhanced even further – it still retains all the popular features but is better and more hygienic. A cleaner Clean.

NEW Etac Turner PRO - Etac now offers even greater support for carers with this new patient turner that provides superior assistance when moving a semi-ambulant user through an active standing transfer.

NEW Molift Quick Raiser - The new Quick Raiser 205 is the latest solution from this world-leading brand to offer safe, controlled and strain-free assistance when transferring a semi-ambulant user between seated locations.

ENHANCED Immedia 2Move Transfer Board - The enhanced Immedia 2Move transfer board bridges the gap and evens out the height difference between two horizontal surfaces like transfers between beds, stretchers, x-ray tables, operation tables, etc. The foam construction makes the transfer comfortable and improves safety and efficiency for horizontal transfers.

ENHANCED Immedia SatinSheet In-bed System - SatinSheet is designed to assist with movement of active to dependent users. It is a complete in-bed system for turning and positioning. User-friendly moving and handling solutions are critical to ensure safe working environments. With SatinSheet no application or removal of the product is required. It reduces friction between the user and the bed. By reducing friction, two major challenges are addressed and decreased; the workload on the caregivers, that reduces work-related injuries and the forces on the patient that reduces the risk of pressure sores.

Torben Helbo, Etac CEO, comments: “The multiple Etac Group product launches at Rehacare 2016 represent a significant milestone in our business and throughout the healthcare product sector. I believe these new Etac and R82 adaptive products will raise the benchmark across many aspects of inclusive design and reiterate our position as thought leaders. The new products will ensure greater numbers of people affected by restricted mobility will be able to enjoy a more fulfilling and rewarding life, with greater independence, care and dignity. This ethos, combined with our continued strategic pathway, will aid all with links to disability, whether that is trade distributors, healthcare professionals or end users.”
