The Interagency Program for Assistive Technology (IPAT) has created this great video showing how a Dycem Non-Slip mat can be used to make pouring drinks even easier in conjunction with a pouring aid. Dycem’s excellent non-slip properties ensure that a drinking vessel stays firmly in place, making pouring easy for individuals lacking the strength or gripping ability necessary to safely and effectively pour.
The Non-Slip team would like to thank everyone who came to visit us at the Cot 2015 Conference and Exhibition (which ran from 30th June-2nd July).
We had a great show- despite the heatwave- in the wonderfully air-conditioned Brighton centre, on Brighton’s lively sea front.
We gave away stacks of goodie bags with our ‘Keep Calm I’m an Occupational Therapist’ Dycem coaster samples- which are always a huge hit with the OT’s. We also spread the word, far and wide, about Dycem Non-Slip’s therapeutic applications.
We would like to thank our resident expert, Jen Cave-Ayland, for helping us out during the exhibition. She is an Occupational Therapist and was only too happy to help with any OT-related questions posed to us from the delegates.
Once again, we ran our ‘How do You Use Dycem?’ competition, where we collected responses from attendees on their best reviews and new uses for Dycem.
Some of the answers included, using Dycem to hold arms still during Mirror Box Therapy exercises and using Dycem reel material for scar tissue massage.
Watch this space to find out who won, as we’ll be announcing the winner soon.
We look forward to seeing you at COT 2016, which will be held in Harrogate.
The Non-Slip team will also be heading to Dusseldorf in October to exhibit at the Rehacare 2015 Conference.
We hope to see you there!
And if you are an Occupational Therapist who attended COT 2015, we’d love to hear your thoughts on how the show went for you. Please leave us a comment below.
We have launched a new range of multi-purpose comfort tapes which create a superior built-up grip.
The super grip comfort tapes feature unique grip properties, a thick cushioned surface and are ideal for wrapping around utensils and mobility equipment handles.
This new range of ‘Super Grip’ tape comes in red, blue and black and has numerous applications for use. It can be cut to any size and applied onto surfaces where a comfortable and stabilized grip is required. For example, the tape can be wrapped around the handles of crutches, walkers and other types of mobility equipment, to increase surface friction and prevent rubbing and chaffing against the skin.
Eva Paraskevaides from Dycem said;
“The new super grip tapes have been developed to provide a cushioned non-slip, built-up grip. The tapes can be easily cut to size to provide an easy, comfortable grip solution for mobility equipment. The grips are also super absorbent and have an extra-long life which makes them ideal for use on items such as crutch handles where continued pressure from the hands is applied to the surface”.
Dycem’s non-slip products are multi-purpose, long-lasting, easy-to-clean and non-toxic. Their forty-nine-year heritage makes Dycem a valued and trusted brand amongst healthcare professionals, occupational therapists, physical therapists and consumers alike.
