We work with healthcare professionals and organisations to develop evacuation products to cater for all types of individuals, including patients with specialist or complex care needs. Many of our products can be modified. If, for example you are looking for evacuation equipment for patients with conditions such as brittle bones, we can increase the padding or make smaller versions for small adults and children.
Worldwide obesity has more than doubled since 1980 leading to a greater demand for moving and handling equipment for bariatric individuals. The rising levels of obesity in the population affects hospitals, ambulance services, funeral directors and fire and rescue services as they struggle to move and transport bariatric individuals.
Our range of bariatric equipment allows for the safe movement of obese and overweight individuals whilst minimising the risk to staff from manual handling related injuries.
Moving and handling Aids
Figures from the Health and Safety Executive show that in health and social care services, moving and handling injuries account for 40 per cent of work-related sickness absence. Our range of moving and handling equipment has been designed with comfort of the patient and and safety in mind.
Included in our product range are slide sheets, seated transfer boards and transfer slings. We also offer a modular floor mat, developed in conjunction with NHS Innovations and crash mats to form part of a fall injury prevention programme.
