Knowledge about handling of bariatric patients leads to product development
Having the bariatric field as our major focus areas it is important for us to constantly develop our XXL-Rehab products so they can cover the needs of bariatric patients. For this we believe it is important to be updated on the latest research in the field of bariatri.
In June we participated at ASMBS - American Society for Metabolic Bariatric Surgery – in Las Vegas, USA. At this international congress there was considerable focus on recent research in the field of bariatri and how this research can be translated into practice for therapists and specialized staff.
Here we were updated with many new aspects, e.g. that rehabilitation and follow-up after completion of surgery should last at least five years, and that a holistic treatment of bariatric patients is a fundamental prerequisite for achieving results.
It was also highlighted that a growing group of specialized staff experience more and more work injuries in dealing with bariatric patients, underlining the importance of using aids that are designed and constructed specifically to bariatric patients.
We now possess an even deeper understanding of the handling of bariatric patients. This knowledge we will be using in our on-going product development. For your information we have several new products in the pipeline, which we expect to present to you in 2011.
