Unfortunately, obesity is a real problem in Wales with the latest statistics reporting that 24% of adults fall into this category. This means there every chance that an OT will find themselves dealing with a bariatric patient. The seating requirements for bariatric patients are different to other patients, so it is important to know what to look for. Here is a quick guide to the most important factors to help your patient remain comfortable and reduce the risk of injuries.

The annual Trade Days show at the NEC in Birmingham provides a great chance to meet with other manufacturers and retailers, but there are some brilliant opportunities for learning too. This year’s list of seminars looks particularly good. There’s a strong focus on the use of social media for marketing, with seminars on getting the most from Facebook and YouTube. Other highlights include a particular favourite of ours – working with OTs to maximise your sales – and several seminars on business strategy and growth.
We loved watching Team GB do so well at the Rio Olympics and in just 7 days’ time the competition starts all over again with the Paralympics. We’ll be cheering on our athletes from the workshop, and we’ll also be keeping one eye on all the innovations in assistive technology that will be on display at the games. The realm of sport is often where the most exciting technological advances come from, and observing how the design teams meet the very specific needs of all the athletes to enable their best performance really brings out the inner geek in us here at Recliners.
We thought we’d share three of our favourite technologies past and present. Do let us know if you see anything that really impresses you at the Paralympics!
Welcome to the August Issue of Inside Recliners. We hope you’ve had a great July. It’s certainly been a busy one here in the workshop – amidst the brief heatwave (feels like an age ago now!) and all the excitement with the Welsh team’s success in the Euros, our orders have doubled over the past two months. We’ve been rushed off our feet!
