The importance of Specialist Seating - What a Difference a Chair Makes
FREE CPD training course to improve your knowledge and confidence with specialist seating.  

At CareFlex, we take our responsibility as a specialist seating provider seriously and recognise that appropriate training is the key to ensuring correct, safe and supportive seating.   What a Difference a Chair Makes -  'The Importance of Specialist Seating in Pressure Care and Postural Management' course has been developed to help you improve your knowledge and confidence with specialist seating.   It is a hands on course full of useful hints and tips to help you understand how and why specialist seating can have such a big effect on comfort, quality of life and the relief/prevention of pressure ulcers.  It is not a sales pitch.

For 2018 we have joined forces with Stuart Barrow and his team at OTAC and will be running half day Seating Seminars at each of the OTAC Conferences around the UK.  Stuart is a strong exponent of the importance of specialist seating.  Jointly, we hope these sessions will give you additional worthwhile CPD training and greatly add to your enjoyment of the day. 

The seminar session will run from 10am to 1pm.  Book a place soon, as places are limited.  We look forward to seeing you.
