Supported by Ergoresearch Ltd (TSXV: ERG), the Équilibre banner—the largest network of orthotists in Quebec—is expanding its offer to include the provision of services in sleep care. These new services build on the multidisciplinary offering from a group composed of orthotists-prosthetists, kinesiologists, and physical rehabilitation therapists, whose mission is to get people moving. “Thanks to a dedicated team of respiratory therapists and the latest technologies, we’re proud to provide top quality services that align with our corporate values. Sleeping well is the foundation of our wellbeing and we are pleased to be able to contribute to people’s health,” says Sylvain Boucher, President and CEO.
The new division, entitled “Apnée Équilibre”, is led by Annie Turcotte, a respiratory therapist with over 15 years of experience, whose team works in close collaboration with experienced pulmonologists. Services are currently available in 4 Quebec clinics—in Lévis, St-Nicolas, Loretteville and Ste-Foy, with plans to expand to the entire network, beginning with the region of Montreal, starting this spring.
The provision of services to provide sleep care is increasingly important; “Sleep disturbances affect more than 10% of the general population and remain under-diagnosed. We’ve identified an underserved need, which we believe will be an important source of growth,” adds Mr. Boucher.
