Acorn Stairlifts recently attended three of the annual 'Show Your Ability' Expos in venues across New Zealand.
Show Your Ability focuses on disability equipment and offers a fantastic opportunity for exhibitors to demonstrate their products to a range of visitors including Occupational Therpists, Housing Assessors and District Nurses amongst others. With growing numbers year after year it is the most effective and efficient way for us to get out and introduce ourselves to this wide range of visitors and offers a chance to show extactly how our stairlifts look and operate. This is particularly important as it allows those who are new to their field to really get an understanding of how a stairlift may be the solution to their clients needs, as well as giving those who may have more experience a chance to boost their product knowledge.
With two operational units on show, both the Acorn 130 and the Acorn 180, our presence was very well received and our staff were more than happy to answer all of the questions put to them (as well as giving the occasional demonstration to those keen to experience an Acorn Stairlift!). In turn we were able to speak in depth with many assessors to gain a better understanding of what exactly they do, ensuring that with future contact both parties have a much better idea of the processes involved.
Our own staff were also impressed with the wide range of equipment on display in the venues and not afraid to try some out themselves, perhaps enjoying the scooters a little bit too much!
We look forward to next years events already and hope to see both familiar and new faces as we continue to inform and educate those who help people with disabilities about the benefits of an Acorn Stairlift
