Hi there! Welcome to Issue 3 of Inside Recliners. Firstly, thanks so much to everyone that’s contacted us saying how much they have enjoyed the content from the last couple of issues. The purpose of this newsletter is to bring you valuable, interesting news and thoughts that will help you do your job, so we’re glad to hear so many people are finding it useful.
It’s always great to hear from you – feel free to contact us any time with questions, or just to say hi on social media. It’s always great to meet the OTs and manufacturers who recommend our chairs as well, and this month we’ve had the chance to do this at the excellent RISE 4 Disability show. See the write up below. We’ve also tried to answer one question we get asked a lot – how to use footrests on a motion recliner chair. And don’t miss our Chair of the Month – the Buckingham.
Matt, Steve, John, David and Kellie.
