Ballarat SCI Regional Network - February 2016 meeting
The Ballarat SCI Regional Network group organised to attend a presentation at the OMNI Healthcare office in Ballarat for their meeting on Thursday the 18th of February.
Here they received a presentation from an OMNI representative about the broad range of products that they sell, hire and service to the public, as well as to the hospital sector.
The group felt well informed after being presented with a vast range of healthcare related products available to people with disabilities.
A lot of time was spent going through which products can be purchased and/or hired, including everyday living items such as can and jar openers, vegetable peelers, shower buddies and electric kettles with safety mechanisms to deter getting burnt.
OMNI also went through various lift chairs, including a vertical lift chair where the arm rest is removable so you can transfer onto the chair and then replace the arm rest, as well as a range of manual wheelchairs, electric wheelchairs, scooters and commodes.
The group found the visit to OMNI very worthwhile, for their own purposes and to share what they learned and discovered with others.
