Pelican's 20th Anniversary

We recently celebrated our 20th Anniversary by enjoying an evening out at a Perth restaurant. It was a fantastic evening and enjoyed by all. Thanks to all the staff for making it such a memorable occasion, and to John and Sue for organising it.

Item Redesign - Heel & Elbow Pads

The new design has no seams under the heel or sole, and has better air circulation. Our foam Heel & Elbow Pads have been very popular for many years. The design was made with a seam which goes under the sole of the foot when lying in bed. This means there is no pressure from the seam under the patient's heel. However it was possible for the seam to be incorrectly placed under the heel, which may be a problem for some patients with heavy feet. We have redesigned this product so that if used either way, there will never be a seam under the heel.

The new design incorporates ventilation holes either side of the heel. These help prevent heat build up around the foot. We have extended the foam section under the Velcro strap to prevent the strap from touching the top of the foot of most patients. Like the original design, the new Convoluted Foam Heel & Elbow Pads will be available in just Convoluted Foam (Item 140) or with the popular slippery cover that allows people to move their feet in bed (Item 140C).

The new design is now available.

Car / Bus Seat Slide Pads

This item is similar to our current Car Seat Slide Pads. The main difference is that it is slightly larger. Also, there is no webbing strap to secure around the back of the seat. It is important to remove this item while the vehicle is moving, otherwise it could be dangerous because the person could slide forward under heaving braking. The Pads are easy to remove if the passenger holds the seat in front to slightly stand while a carer removes the pad.

Foam Price Increase

Once again the price of foam increased significantly. There have in fact been 3 foam price increases which we have absorbed since March, and we have now increased the price of all our products which contain foam.

Our website has current correct prices.

Emailing Statements

We have recently upgraded our accounting software and we can now email statements instead of posting them. This saves us the time and money of printing and posting them, and also means you get them quicker and if necessary, you can easily forward the emailed statement on to the necessary department. Hopefully we will be able to phase out posting statements as much as possible.

To receive your statements by email, please reply to this email by clicking here. Change the subject heading to 'email statements', or words to that effect. We can then amend your account accordingly.

Please feel free to forward this newsletter on to your colleagues who you think may benefit from it. This is a great way of keeping up to date with new items as they become available in your industry. You can subscribe via our homepage by clicking here.
