Helping disabled children and young adults with special needs

Helping disabled children and young adults with special needs

An extensive range of daily living aids and assistive technology equipment suitable for children and young people with special needs and disabilities is now available from NRS Healthcare.

The comprehensive selection is featured in a new dedicated 140-page catalogue from the leading supplier, set out within categories such as toileting & bathroom aids, seating & positioning, moving & handling, exercise & assessment, and therapeutic resources.

And the catalogue also includes invaluable advice and helpful information from NRS Healthcare's in-house Occupational Therapist about the importance of selecting the correct equipment and helpful aids.
Sandra King, NRS Healthcare Brand Director, said: "It's essential for the dignity, safety and comfort of the person concerned that the equipment chosen is correct for them. Get that right and the equipment will encourage independence, support developmental goals and enhance quality of life."

"We are delighted to be offering such a comprehensive range within our new Special Needs Solutions catalogue but as a company, NRS Healthcare is fully committed to helping parents and carers to choose the most suitable equipment."

More than 30 of the products available through the catalogue are brand new - including the Corner Sitter, Maggie Pro Portable Electronic Magnifier and a selection of disability and emotional awareness resources.

The Corner Sitter is a portable, adjustable seating unit that provides support in long sitting and enables a child to join in with others playing at floor level. The backrest can be set in a prone or recline position and the sides adjusted to provide lateral support.

The Maggie Pro Portable Electronic Magnifier is a versatile credit-card sized magnifier that has a three-inch wide screen and comes with four levels of magnification. It has a sharp true colour image that can be used in greyscale for enhanced reading clarity and the freeze facility enables images to be viewed close up.
