Abacus experiences most successful Kidz-to-Adultz- up-North exhibition

Abacus experiences most successful Kidz-to-Adultz- up-North exhibition

Trusted by families and OTs to provide proven assisted bathing solutions, Abacus Healthcare has welcomed the largest number of visitors onto its stand at a Kidz North event (Stand C8, 16th November, EventCity, Manchester).

Abacus has been a long-standing supporter of the regional Kidz exhibitions which provide an invaluable opportunity to see the latest assistive equipment and services for young people living with disability. This series of shows brings together an impressive array of specialist manufacturers such as Abacus who supply power assisted accessible baths.

At Kidz-to-Adultz-up-North the Abacus team successful demonstrated the popular Gemini bath with variable height and integrated changing, drying and bathing platform. Through its unique ‘double lift’ action it provides safe working heights for carers and the platform minimises manual handling transfers. In addition to Gemini demonstrations, the friendly Abacus Product Specialists offered free advice guides to help with funding and ownership of an accessible bath. A range of engaging case studies were also available along with the opportunity to win the company Mascot ‘Trevor the Turtle.’

Abacus is delighted to report that Kidz-to-Adultz-up-North was the most successful ever in terms of stand footfall and assessment enquiries. The team met with a variety of visitors including families, children, therapists and case managers – all keen to understand why the Abacus name is synonymous with quality assisted bathing. These initial consultations allowed the Abacus team to engage on a one-to-one basis and offer invaluable advice regarding their product range. Children and young adults with disabilities were able to test the Gemini along with examples from the well-respected range of Abacus postural supports.

Overall the show was a rewarding experience for all visitors attending the Abacus stand. They were able to discover the many practical and well-being benefits of owning an Abacus bath which in turn improves the lives of all bathers and carers. Bathing has been proven to be more beneficial than showering in an adapted wet room, as highlighted in the Abacus #BathingIsBetter campaign.
