Singapore, Sep 2018 Medical Fair Asia
MFA 2018 saw the strongest turnout ever, with 1,000 exhibitors from 62 countries, including 23 national pavilions and country groups this year. Situated in a strategic corner booth in the Community Care Zone, PRESSALIT A/S’ presence was a first ever, in Singapore. We were kept busy as we played host to at least 140 visitors to our booth over the three days. Its 12 sq m stand featured a MATRIX Small wash basin, a PLUS 450 shower seat and three different permutations of PLUS Support Arms. Seen also for the first time in South East Asia was the Nursing Bench 3000 Series, which attracted a lot of interest from various local and regional hospitals. It was evident that adult-sized height adjustable changing benches are slowly gaining acceptance as a primary feature in accessible toilets in SEA.

You will recall we showcased PRESSALIT Care’s range of flexible bathroom solutions designed for not just the physically impaired but protect the well-being of care-givers too.
Safety, independence, dignity and comfort in the bathroom concern us the most. Our efforts in raising awareness of and campaigning for truly inclusive accessible toilets in Singapore must continue.
