Leading assisted bath specialist Abacus Healthcare will be offering educational seminars, free advice guides and a ‘Tiny the Turtle’ free prize draw at DNEX 2017.

27-28th Sept: DNEX (Disability North), stand 49, Newcastle Racecourse, High Gosforth Park, Newcastle upon Tyne NE3 5HP. Free admission.

DNEX is an exhibition that provides information, advice and equipment for disabled people, older adults, carers and health and social care professionals. It offers the opportunity to experience products and services first-hand so greater independence can be achieved. Abacus Healthcare will be demonstrating its popular power-assisted Gemini bath on stand 49 and during a series of educational seminars based on its nationwide ‘Lunch and Learn’ roadshows and #BathingIsBetter campaign.


The Gemini is unique in the marketplace as it is the only bath with an integrated platform and dual lift functionality. The changing, drying and bathing platform eliminates awkward transfers so safety and comfort is enhanced for carers and bathers. Once the bather is positioned on the platform the bath sides are raised to immerse the user in temperate controlled water. The second stage lift which involves raising the whole bath can then be activated so carers benefit from a safer working height. Without the need to bend over or manual lift when attending to disabled bathers carers are protected against possible back and musculoskeletal injury. Read more.....
