At our permanent demonstration

alongside our regular displays of
equipment for independence, we
are always on the lookout for any

here in Devon to hold a drink

independent drinking . We also
have the ‘Stabilo’ vacuum shape
modelling cushion, ideal for
adding some postural support
when seated in a standard chair,
wheelchair or car seat, have a
look at the website to see the other
