Award winning Simple Stuff Works is the UK’s leading manufacturer and supplier of sleep positioning systems and associated training packages. The company has a team of highly trained advisors covering the UK with Steve Darlaston being responsible for the south west.
Headed up by sisters Anna Waugh and Sarah Clayton, Simple Stuff Works is a family business that truly believes in finding the right solution for each user as Anna explained: “Our father developed the first therapeutic positioning system and has been involved in the research of sleep positioning and development of solutions for over 30 years. Over that time we have helped thousands of people of all ages, from small children to the elderly, benefit from the correct therapeutic positioning and therefore help to reduce body shape distortion”.
The company recently launched a new website www.simplestuffworks.co.uk and a new elearner package www.biztrainingsolutions.co.uk/postural-care-awareness. The elearner course has been designed to support learners who are unable to attend training sessions during the day due to work or care commitments and as it is online it is open to anyone anywhere. To allow users to integrate the online course within their day to day activities, each user has up to 12 months to access the material available and complete the course.
To book an assessment with Steve or to find out more about the range of solutions and as training available from Simple Stuff Works please call 01827 307870. You can also follow the team on twitter @simplestuffwrks and facebook.
