Part of the Gainsborough Healthcare Group, Abacus is a respected UK manufacturer of power assisted baths for disabled bathers. Its bathing range is renowned for exceptional safety, reliability and support – ensuring individuals with a range of conditions can bathe with peace of mind. Ergonomic design including powered bather transfer seats and hi-lo functionality also ensure carers are protected from excessive moving and handling and subsequent back injury. This commitment to professionals is furthered by the Abacus Academy which provides free learning for Therapists seeking Continuing Professional Development (CPD).
Led by associate Occupational Therapists from The OT Service, the Abacus educational programme provides a range of webinars, seminars, workshops and online material focused on assisted bather and client care. These free training resources will be on display at Kidz South with senior Abacus representatives explaining how to access the Academy and gain CPD hours. The fleet of spacious Abacus demonstration vehicles continue to provide Covid-safe training environments with baths onboard for clinical and client assessment.

This pioneering variable height, 2-metre bath is a larger version of the popular Gemini 1700 and provides future-proofed bathing for disabled adults and children. Its unique ‘double lift action’ and integrated changing, drying and bathing platform ensures easier transfers and enhanced safety for both bather and carer.

Part of the Abacus fleet, these educational vehicles have a variety of products onboard for moving and handling presentations and bather assessment. Hence if professionals or families require an appointment that is nearby, the Abacus product specialists can attend with their vehicles before or after the show.
