Acheeva Learning Stations
The Acheeva® Learning Stations provide full support in supine, prone or side-lying to protect body shape and respiratory function.
Powered height adjustment enables sliding or standing transfers and moving from class to bathroom can also be easily achieved with less disruption than a hoist.
SymmetriSleep Positioning System
Night-time is one of the best times to work with postural management, as tone is usually reduced and gravity can be used to an advantage to gently work with correct ‘postural moulding’ and provide passive stretching over a period of time that is usually not possible during the day.
Just a quick reminder about Symmetrikit Family Workshops…….
Over the years we have found that the introduction of Sleep systems is most successful with a planned approach.
We find the best way to plan the approach, to set goals and manage expectations is to fully involve the client and their family in the process and this is why we offer assistance in doing this with our free Families Workshops.
We have been running these short workshops since 1999. If you have not been involved in one, (or it was a long time ago!) this information may help : We recommend a therapist gets between 4 to 6 families who are interested in night time postural care, together as a group, for an informal teaching/planning meeting involving about 2 hours of both theory and practice.
We provide a trained Symmetrikit Sales Manager who the therapist can then contact as required to do either the practical session or both the practical and theory elements; how much is up to you. If you have an experienced user or carer available who is willing to participate, then that will certainly offer reassurance to the families.
The outcome should be a better understanding of the benefits of 24 hour postural care (i.e. why it is worth trying something new?) and an action plan. If trials are to be implemented then review dates should be set.
If you are not currently involved in this programme and would like to know more about the workshops, please contact Fidelis (Ireland) on 028 (048 ROI) 2553 2777 or Tracy (Scotland) 01309 676677, or email firstname.lastname@example.org
