We are delighted to have Etac Education Manager, Jane Vorting hosting a seminar titled:
"How cognitive impairment can cause anxiety, fear and distressed behaviour during daily moving and handling tasks!"
A person with dementia, brain damage or cognitive impairment can find it difficult to process sensory information which can lead to distressed behaviour. This can be minimised with an appropriate neuropsychological approach and well-planned transfer
Besides a theoretical introduction you will have a practical introduction to Etac Patient Handling solutions and technical aids which can help minimise or avoid a stressful situation. We will show how to take advantage of the natural movement and how to increase the level of the calming hormone Oxytocin.
This was very well received at the recent National Back Exchange Conference so we hope you can join us: day 1 10:40 - 11:10 and day 2 12:50 - 13:20, Showcase Theatre.
Matthew Eveleigh, Occupational Therapist, Celtic Therapy & Rehab Services working in partnership with Ki Mobility (who recently joined the Etac family) is hosting two sessions in the Innovation Theatre. We are pleased to be able to share details with you below.
Day 1 - 13:10 – 13:40
Wheelchair Cushion Science in a Nutshell: A Primer on the Science that Should be Driving Your Clinical Choices
Prescribers of wheelchair cushions have historically relied on many factors in deciding which cushions to recommend, including word of mouth, self-perceived comfort/ function, experience, etc. While these can be important, the science of design and materials should be a primary factor in driving cushion selection to allow for comfort and function, while optimally managing pressure.
Day 2 - 13:30 - 14:00
Tilting the Odds: Manual Tilt to Improve Rehabilitation Outcomes
Individuals with neurological disabilities deal with a number of challenges in completing activities of daily living. One of the most significant of those challenges is acquiring a mobility device that allows them to maximise their independence with both mobility and performance of their activities of daily living. For some individuals the adaptive equipment that is often provided may be inadequate to achieve the potential for that participation and independence.
