Trabasack February Newsletter - All the best from our blogs and websites
The latest innovations and news in healthcareFebruary maybe the month of love but at Trabasack HQ it’s been the month of craft. With kids’ crafts and a spotlight on our Trabasack Curve Connect as a handy craft tray and bag we’ve been getting stuck into all sorts of sensory play and crafting fun.
Throughout February we’ve been looking back at some of our older posts, especially with 3D printing in the news with an F1 car design and a life being saved with a 3D printed heart model.
We’ve also been looking into the sensory fun that can be had at Naidex 2014 and how to use your Trabasack as a handy food tray for buggies and car seats - with some great tips for buggy friendly snacks.
Check out the end of the newsletter for our fun Trabasack Spotted! - showing off one of our fab Trabasaxons on their travels, with their Trabasack in tow. If you’ve got a pic you want to share we’d love to hear about it and maybe you’ll be ‘spotted’ next!
