Occupational Therapy Show 2016: Jette Reinewald

We are pleased to confirm that Jette Reinewald, a qualified Occupational Therapist, and senior member of staff of our Danish suppliers, Protac A/S, will be giving a presentation at this years OT Show about the concept and philosophy behind the creation of the Protac Ball Blanket™ and how it was developed inline with occupational therapy principles regarding sensory processing, and from practical experiences within psychiatric wards.

The calming effect of the Ball Blanket™ was immediately recognized by the psychiatric patients and soon after sold to many target groups based on actual case studies. Increased demand for evidence has been met through several scientific research projects, for example “The use of the Ball Blanket™ in attention deficit - hyperactivity disorder sleeping problems” by Hvolby & Bilenberg (Nordic Journal of Psychiatry 2010).

Finally the presentation will talk about the creative process of developing new products within the concept of S.I.Theory.

We invite you to attend Jette's presentation, after which there will time for a limited question and answer session.

Beware of Imitations

We are most concerned that there is now a copy chair on the market being sold as the 'Apollo Air Chair'. Our chairs are either sold direct, or via an established dealer network. Our Authorised Dealers are included on our website.....if it has not come from either us, or them, you are more than likely buying a copy chair, which has been manufactured and imported from China.

As with many successful products, there are a number of companies and individuals who have absolutely no original thoughts, and worse still, no business scruples, and will shamelessly offer a product, passing it off to be, something it is not! Whilst imitation is the greatest form of flattery, our concerns are that an inferior product is being passed off, and sold as one of ours. This only confuses the market and ultimately gives the product a bad name.

Is the product you are buying a genuine chair with the original Air Comfort Seating System? As with any imitation or copy, things are done on the cheap! The Chinese copy utilises an an inferior air system which is not offering the same level of comfort or pressure care. Please insist on a certified X-sensor Pressure Map, prior to purchase. The copy chair has a very poor pressure relief reading and bears no resemblance to the pressure care being offered by the Air Comfort range of seating.

Seating Dynamics (an independent testing company, based in Sydney) carried out a comparative interface pressure mapping test (the results of which are annexed hereto), with some alarming results. After 1 minute, the copy chair was 40% less effective in terms of pressure relief, and after 30 minutes the copy chair was 98% less effective. As we said.....beware the imitation!!

Furthermore, the fabric with which the copy chair is covered, is a very cheap imitation, and does not offer the same qualities or benefits as the genuine 'Dartex' specialist healthcare fabrics.

If you are in any doubt, do not purchase the chair until you have thad the opportunity for us to confirm that you are in fact buying the correct chair.

We have issued the appropriate infringement notices to the Chinese manufacturers, but these, to date, have been ignored. Our legal team are taking the appropriate action to bring to an end this flagrant and very serious misleading marketing campaign.

We are also making a number of changes and improvements to our chairs, and hope to have the new chair available by the end of August. However, in summary, there are number of things you should take note of which will make it quite easy to differentiate the products:

  • Base frame
  • Castors
  • Footrest
  • Tray table
  • Fabric covering
  • Range and size of chairs available

Should you be in any doubt, or require any further information, please contact us immediately.
