Latest News from Osprey Healthcare

30 July 2014

The Osprey Sling Company is proud to launch ‘Traceability Straps’ on their entire sling range.

From August 2014, all slings will carry a permanent record of the Safe Working Load, Serial Number and Contact details. After discussions with loan stores and LOLER examiners it was apparent that many slings, that are still in good condition, are failed at the LOLER examination and are thrown away, simply because the label has become illegible.

Traceability Straps will allow the slings to be identified long after the label has worn away, meaning that the sling can be relabelled and put back into the community, saving on the cost of replacing a sling that is in good condition.

LOLER examiners will now be able to identify slings that need relabeling rather than failing them automatically, extending the life of the sling beyond the life of the label.

Another satisfied Osprey Healthcare customer..

Bespoke Wet-Wheelchair

Thank you for all your effort & expertise in designing my custom made wet-wheelchair.

My wet-wheelchair facilitates my toileting & showering needs and has improved my qualify of life in living with my severe disability.The seat, armrests and footrests are comfortable and the shroud captures 100% of water from my Closomat Toilet - Douche.

It's very easy to manoeuvre and the anti-tip bars give comfort of security.

My carer's say the wet-chair's strong stainless steel frame is easy to keep clean.

I strongly recommend Osprey Healthcare Limited.

A Happy New Year from a very happy customer…

Dear Osprey,

I received my Wheelable before Christmas and what a difference it's made to my life!

I got to use it over the Christmas period without the anxiety of worrying about my bathroom needs. It's always a worry when booking in to a hotel and there is minimal equipment (usual drop down handles and level floor), but now I know I can book in confidence knowing that that part of my stay has no impact.

I now am looking forward to booking a holiday abroad knowing that I don't have to worry, thank you for this life changing product!
