Lunch and Learn | Falls Prevention

We’ve had great feedback from mental health trusts who’ve participated in the lunch and learn events we carried out in 2019, and the first half of January 2020.

The events are offered throughout each year, subject to availability. 2020 is filling fast but there are still a few weeks left with availability.

The format of these events is as follows:

  • We work with you to provide a range of equipment demonstrations based around a theme, for instance Falls Prevention and Early Detection in Mental Health, Older Adults
  • All we ask from your side is a space, like a gym, training room or similar – and an audience, this can be a group all at once, or a steady trickle, like a series of drop-in sessions
  • We provide a healthy, high quality and nutritious lunch and we cater for needs such as vegetarian and vegan so that everyone is included
  • There is a strong educational and informative approach, looking at new concepts and techniques to make your lives easier
  • There is no cost to the trust, this is funded by Caremed as part of our educational grants scheme

Here is an article about our LNL offer and here is a snapshot from a previous event. And this is an example of one type of equipment integration / technique, amongst many others that we can provide.

If a lunch and learn would be useful to you and your team, please get in touch as soon as possible so we can assist in setting a date.

Mobilise® – bringing all the seating together under one brand

As part of our new branding which is taking place throughout 2019, we are bringing together all of our acute specialist seating under our Mobilise® brand which will encompass:

  • High Dependency and Critical Care Seating
  • Early Mobilisation and Therapy Platforms
  • Fast-track Seating for Emergency Departments and Day Case / Procedures Units

Our website will also be undergoing many improvements, including our new chat bot which is being improved regularly to match customer response.

If we can support your hospital or specialist care centre with seating that makes care Easier, Quicker, Safer, please get in touch for a demo or trial


Why does length of stay matter?


The difference that early mobilisation can make, to all stakeholders involved in Acute Care is well documented:

  • Patients benefit from shortened recovery times, and increased functional strength upon discharge
  • Hospitals and staff benefit from freeing up bedspace for other patients
  • Costs are reduced with efficiency gains
