The team at HLS Healthcare knows how important it is for disability equipment to be made well, to be reliable in its use, and to be backed by a company that stands by their products. We know that not all disability equipment suppliers are created equal, and we’ve learned what is most important to our customers as we’ve seen them succeed with the products we provide. Now, we seek to educate and inform as well as continue to provide top-tier disability equipment for aged care facilities, hospitals and similar organisations.
In this article, we’re going over everything you need to know on a fundamental level to get the most out of the relationship you have with your disability equipment supplier or suppliers. Whether you are responsible for the equipment used in your facility or you are a carer yourself, these tips can help you in your efforts to make patients more comfortable and to reduce risk of strain for those who care for them.
- Key Fact #1: History and experience are absolutely critical. Any manufacturer or provider of disability equipment simply isn’t going to be taken as seriously as a company that has been in business and solving problems for many years. Those who work in aged care or rehabilitation clinics know first-hand how specialized their equipment needs to be, and a disability equipment supplier without a proven track record just doesn’t have as much to offer.
- Key Fact #2: Many pieces of disability equipment can be customised to suit your needs. While this isn’t always the case, you may be surprised to learn what options are available. This is especially the case with many adjustable kitchen or bathroom fixtures that can be selected and configured to suit a wide variety of applications.
- Key Fact #3: Training and post-sales support is available for as many people who need it, and for as long as it is needed. We know how critical it is that your team is trained and knowledgeable about how to use hoists, slings, and smart floors. As a dedicated provider of complete disability equipment solutions, we’re committed to giving you and your team all of the resources needed to learn the operation and maintenance of all of the equipment we supply.
- Key Fact #4: Complete smart floor, ceiling hoist, and patient positioning systems can be much more affordable than you may think. Many of our customers are shocked to learn just how much advanced technology they can get with a relatively small investment in their facility infrastructure. And, the more rooms that need disability equipment, the more the savings add up thanks to economies of scale.
Regardless of your role in the process of caring for patients, it helps to know what resources are available to you in the area of high-quality, reliable disability equipment. When you need to best from your disability equipment supplier, rely on HLS Healthcare for the service and experience you depend on.
