Adam Ferry, Occupational Therapist, The OT Service.
Theatre 2. 11:00 – 11:30.
This seminar highlights clinical and legislative evidence to support bath justification and funding. Delegates will be able to discuss the wellbeing-related and safety benefits of bathing verses adapted showering, as well as the benefits to OTs of prescribing a specialist bath for clients.
This seminar is part of the Abacus educational programme which provides free training for healthcare professionals such as Occupational Therapists, Physiotherapists and Moving and Handling professionals. Adam Ferry and Kate Sheehan, senior therapists from The OT Service, partner with Abacus to supply nationwide CPD-accredited bathing workshops and ‘Lunch and Learn’ seminars, as well as a series of informative educational videos.
On stand T1, Abacus Regional Assessment Managers will be demonstrating the future-proofed 2-metre long Gemini 2000 which delivers a safe and comfortable bathing experience for disabled children, adults and their carers. To provide appropriate space for growing users, this latest version of the popular height-adjustable, platform bath from Abacus has foot and back rests that can be repositioned dependant on the leg room required. Additionally, all Gemini baths are now manufactured with BioCote antimicrobial technology which cannot be wiped or worn away – hence providing 99.9% 24/7 protection against harmful microbes such as Influenza H1N1, E.coli, Salmonella and antibiotic resistant MRSA.
