The inmu takes 2nd place in Best New Rehab Product at Health & Rehab Scandinavia
It came as a happy surprise when inmuRELAX was nominated as a finalist in the category Best New Rehab Product at the Health & Rehab Scandinavia trade fair, which ran from 15-17. May in the Bella Centre, Copenhagen.
“The inmu has an incredibly beautiful design. It is designed to look like a pillow. It can lie in a couch without anyone realizing that it is a disability-aid. It showcases an expression that we find to be a unique feature throughout all three nominated products: it does not look like it is a disability-aid,” says Tina Nør Langager, chairman of the Occupational Therapist Union.
The collaboration between functionality and design was of special importance in the nomination.
“inmuRELAX is made out of good materials. It plays music that conforms to the body’s movements. When you fall asleep, it stops playing by itself. It makes the inmu highly functional in providing peace and calm, also in mindfulness therapy.
It is useful within a broad spectrum of target audiences, for example for people suffering from dementia and with physical and mental disabilities. But we see a possible much broader use for the inmu, also for people with stress-related problems,” Tina Nør Langager concludes.
The other nominees have been Scallop Pediatric Seating from R82 and the winner DC Home elevator.
