    ‘Managing bathing posture to support engagement and safety’,
    Seminar Room 2, 10:30am.
    Kate Sheehan, Occupational Therapist.

    Educational overview
    Bathing can be important to people for a variety of different reasons, whether it be to benefit relaxation, sleep, play, or relationships. However, following a client centred and holistic bathing assessment, that identifies bathing as meaningful, the practicalities of making that a reality, particularly for someone with postural needs, can seem daunting and challenging.

    This session looks to consider the theory behind bathing posture, linked to functional engagement, safety and long-term health and well-being. Practical demonstration of product will be used to reinforce this learning and reflect on opportunities to meet this clinical and functional challenge.

    There will also be an opportunity to discuss individual challenges both within the session and on the Abacus stand, E10.

    Abacus display
    On stand E10, the Gemini 2000 bath will be displayed – winner of the ‘Excellence in Caring’ Award at the OT Show. This pioneering variable height, 2-metre bath is a larger version of the popular Gemini 1700 and provides future-proofed bathing for disabled adults and children. Its unique ‘double lift action’ and integrated changing, drying and bathing platform ensures easier transfers and enhanced safety for both bather and carer. As ever the Abacus Mascot Trevor the Turtle will be on hand for cuddles with younger visitors.
