A few weeks ago, at the National Back Exchange in the UK (The NBE Association exists to develop, disseminate and promote evidence based best practice in moving & handling), MIP was awarded the Industry Innovation Award for Innovative Ideas and/or Products Promoting Excellence in Manual Handling for Swift and Swift UltraSlide.




The Industry Innovation Award is voted on by the conference attendees (namely occupational therapists, manual handling experts, and clinical directors). In a market space with companies offering everything from an inexpensive disposable slider to a high end air matt, all with the purpose of safe patient repositioning and handling, being recognized is a significant accomplishment. As a result of this honor, we will be featured in the upcoming Occupational Therapists trade journal. 

So why did MIP win? The resounding feedback we received from the attendees was that with Swift,
we "heard them". Manual handling experts want something they can afford that is easy to use, easy to handle, that is good for their patients, that will save them time and save them injuries. Swift delivers on all fronts!
