What will I learn? Jiraffe Training Days will focus on a range of products, their use and benefits and give some background information on maintenance and general care.  There will also be a short session dedicated to understanding the basics of human development and the childhood conditions that may lead to a child needing postural support equipment.

We will cover the range of products available from Jiraffe in those areas, including  those from Jenx and Rifton.  The Seating and Toileting training days will cover the bathroom range we have available demonstrated primarily by the Rifton HTS and seating systems and the range of features available and will provide you with a chance to work through the assessment process.  Our aim is for you to leave the day with an understanding of how to get the best for the children you work with by understanding and fully using the products available to you.

The Jiraffe Sleeping, Standing and Mobility training days will follow the same method; we will cover the benefits of sleeping systems, demonstrated by the Jenx Dreama™, and the range of standing and mobility products provided by Jiraffe, including both Rifton and Jenx products and the features and benefits of these and will provide you with the chance to work through the assessment process. We’ve structured the session to provide you with time to interact with the products, learn how to use and adjust them and also to gain confidence in using the products to support the children in your care.

The Aim of our Courses: For you to gain confidence in identifying features and benefits in seating, sleeping, standing, bathroom & mobility products and have gained hands-on experience with the full range of products available from Jiraffe.
