                               Using this Equipment List:

Each worksheet contains one category of equipment. To open a category, click on the worksheet
at the bottom of the screen. Within each category are sub-headings to help you find specific
types of equipment.

You can search for specific equipment items in the following ways:
     - BY CATEGORY. Equipment List (this does not apply to the Continence List) is split into
       worksheets according to categories. See table below for an outline of each category.

     - BY USING FILTERS. Use the arrows in the top row to narrow your search. Click on the
       arrow and scroll down to select the item description, brand name or product code
       you are looking for. N.B: Product descriptions begin with the type of equipment, followed
       by it’s particular specifications (i.e. ‘Vacuum cleaner – upright’, ‘Vacuum cleaner – bagless'
       or ‘Vacuum cleaner – Hand Vacuum – high powered’

     - FIND FUNCTION press the 'CTRL' and 'F' buttons to search for particular phrases.
        i.e long handled, 8x10 cell. This can be particularly useful where similar items may
       appear under different sub-headings.

Other useful tips and hints:
     - items for purchase have blue sub-headings
     - items for hire have green sub-headings
     - manufacturer item codes have been used to create a consistent system across
        all suppliers
     - visit the website for each supplier - they have photos and additional descriptions
       of each equipment item
