NEW Etac Clean

NEW Etac Turner PRO

NEW Molift Quick Raiser
The new Quick Raiser 205 is the latest solution from this world-leading brand to offer safe, controlled and strain-free assistance when transferring a semi-ambulant user between seated locations. 

ENHANCED Immedia 2Move Transfer Board
The enhanced Immedia 2Move transfer board bridges the gap and evens out the height difference between two horizontal surfaces like transfers between beds, stretchers, x-ray tables, operation tables, etc. The foam construction makes the transfer comfortable and improves safety and efficiency for horizontal transfers.

ENHANCED Immedia SatinSheet In-bed System
SatinSheet is designed to assist with movement of active to dependent users. It is a complete in-bed system for turning and positioning. User-friendly moving and handling solutions are critical to ensure safe working environments. With SatinSheet no application or removal of the product is required. It reduces friction between the user and the bed. By reducing friction, two major challenges are addressed and decreased; the workload on the caregivers, that reduces work-related injuries and the forces on the patient that reduces the risk of pressure sores.


Torben Helbo, Etac CEO, comments: “The multiple Etac Group product launches at Rehacare 2016 represent a significant milestone in our business and throughout the healthcare product sector. I believe these new Etac and R82 adaptive products will raise the benchmark across many aspects of inclusive design and reiterate our position as thought leaders. The new products will ensure greater numbers of people affected by restricted mobility will be able to enjoy a more fulfilling and rewarding life, with greater independence, care and dignity. This ethos, combined with our continued strategic pathway, will aid all with links to disability, whether that is trade distributors, healthcare professionals or end users.”
