The Geoff Smirthwaite Foundation (Smirthwaite’s affiliated Charity) was approached by Allison Beattie who was fundraising for the purchase of Portable Hip Spica Seats for the children having hip surgery at Ninewells Hospital in Dundee. Allison Beattie raised £225 and the Foundation donated the remaining to allow for the purchase of two Portable Hip Spica’s. Well done Allison!

“Chi Chi stander is a fantastic, basic piece of equipment. It looks great (the children and staff all find it really appealing) and it holds the child securely whilst offering plenty of opportunity for active therapy. It can be adjusted to meet the various needs of the children and is a very affordable price. It would be great as an assessment tool as well as a long-term standing option”
Jacqui Parker, Band 7 Paediatric Physiotherapist, Birmingham NHS Trust
Thank you to all the OT’s out there who turned up to the Occupational Therapy Show this week, we hope you found all the seminars and trade stands useful, we loved seeing you on our stand.

We had a great show at Kidz to Adultz South in Reading. Our new products the Chi Chi Standing frame and Juni Dolly Base were on display and were very well received and a lot of interest was registered.
We really enjoy these shows and love meeting all of the regular faces and making new friends too.
Next big show for us is PMG on the 18th and 19th July when we will be showcasing our new motorised standing products.
We are very proud to be supporting the University of Plymouth and their Occupational Therapy students during their CPD Festival this week.
We attended with a showcase of products and also held a talk with students regarding the importance of good posture, 24hr posture management programmes and how our products can help. For students who attended they were eligible for CPD points. We received a great level of enthusiasm from the students and proved to be a very rewarding day!
We look forward to continuing to work closely with the University and supporting them in the future.
