Moving and Handling Lab

The dedicated Moving and Handling Lab is making its first appearance at Naidex, and will provide healthcare professionals and carers with two days of fully focused, interactive and CPD accredited demonstrations. This will include crucial knowledge, progressive techniques and the expertise needed to effectively and safely support and transport individuals with disabilities or special needs.

Experts will provide interactive training sessions in the field of hoisting, dementia and manual handling, toileting slings, single handed care, plus size handling, rehabilitation, postural management, professional integrity and more.

Learn how to effectively move and handle patients with the least amount of exerted effort, in a way that provides the utmost comfort and dignity.
