We were delighted to be part of the Occupational Therapy Show at Birmingham’s NEC on November 22nd and 23rd, 2023, where Prism Medical UK joined Prism Healthcare Group companies Harvest Healthcare, Repose Furniture and Smirthwaite to showcase innovation and collaboration.

OT-led workshop - an occupational therapist, with someone on a bed, surrounded by workshop delegates.

The show’s highlight was our continued collaboration with John Callas, Occupational Therapist and Managing Director of Athena Handling Ltd. Together, we hosted a series of Occupational Therapy-led workshops that resonated well with the audience, showcasing the power of collaboration in the healthcare space.

We also had the opportunity to present our new Freeway Flow shower cradle alongside some of our more established products, such as the Freeway Height Adjustable shower chair, TA180 transfer aid and a range of ceiling track hoists.

Prism Medical UK is excited to join OTAC Glasgow on the 25th of January at Glasgow’s Golden Jubilee Hotel.

Naidex National once again proved to be a real successful addition to the Prism event calendar for 2014, as crowds flocked to stand B30 to witness educational presentations hosted by the Prism Team and guest speaker Jo-Anne Webb (Senior Lecturer, Directorate of Occupational Therapy, University of Salford).

Lesley Louden (Business Development Manager) and Chris Hackett (Training Manager) kicked off proceedings with ‘Enabling Single Handed Care’, allowing attendees to get ‘hands on’ with Prism equipment specifically designed to be utilised by a single carer.

A brief break followed before Jo-Anne Webb took to the limelight to present her research findings on sling fabrics and their effects on interface pressure and comfort in sitting with wheelchair users.

Meanwhile, elsewhere on the stand, attendees were among the first to witness exclusive new product launches, including the Prism General Purpose Clip Sling, the Prism General Purpose Clip & Loop Sling and the new range of Freeway Steel Mobile Hoists.

Other products on show included the Prism Aluminium Mobile Hoist Range, Prism GK Assisted Baths and a fully functioning Prism Curved Stairlift leading to an elevated meeting area, which proved to be a real hit with clients who were looking to get to grips with the Prism range of products in a more secluded area of the stand.
