About HMC Sweden
HMC Sweden are experts in the areas of safe patient manual handling and transfer with lifts and slings. We are a national knowledge center in the field and are constantly working to develop our programs (courses, theme days, tutorials) gaining new knowledge
, and assuring implementation of the latest cutting edge assistive device technology. The company was founded in 1995 and with roots in the disability movement we are continuing to work closely with non-profit, municipal and government organizations working for better care!
We have a pronounced focus on the user and all our activities and training aims to support all those working with patient transfer, in their efforts to support and sustain patients’/users’ daily functions. Our courses provide occupational therapists and physiotherapists with tools enabling them to supervise or educate nursing staff in patient transfer. We also train assistive device consultants, rehab assistants, nurses and assistive device technicians. All instructors in patient transfer knowledge at HMC are licensed occupational therapists and physiotherapists with extensive documented experience in clinical work. Our license acts as a guarantee that our work meets requirements set by The Health Care Act (Hälso- och sjukvårdslagen). On some courses, we work with instructors who specialize in other areas, such as pain management, educators and assistive technicians. Our courses are held in our fully equipped premises in Gothenburg, in premises in Stockholm or at our client’s on-site premises throughout Sweden.
We have some of our written course materials available in English. In some countries we cooperate with local organizations that have translated our materials into additional languages.
Please contact us if you’re interested in ordering or if you wish to discuss a cooperation to make the materials available in your own language!
On our premises in Gothenburg, we have currently assistive devices from more than 35 different manufacturers.
We frequently welcome guests from all over the world. Please contact us if you’re interested in visiting – or if you have any further questions!
