Theraposture Limited, the highly respected specialist in assistive furniture, has experienced high levels of enquiries regarding its new, pioneering Mascot Mk2 care cot and revolutionary Rotoflex bed at Occupational Therapy 2013 (26-27 November, Stand D72, NEC).
Theraposture is a privately owned, family run business that has been a leading supplier of bespoke, hand-built adjustable beds, chairs and care cots since 1981. Regularly recommended by healthcare professionals such as OTs, Theraposture is often seen as first choice for reliable, quality assistive furniture. Its new Mascot Mk2 cot is the first fully modular design available in the UK. Building on the heritage of the original Mascot, it is a hand built, individually specified sleeping solution that provides complete flexibility that meets the changing needs of a disabled child. This remarkable design attracted significant attention from visitors to stand D72 who also had the opportunity to win an iPad Mini, courtesy of Theraposture.
Liam Braddell, Theraposture Sales Director explained: “We were delighted to support OT 2013 during its launch year and the show appeared to be well organised and attendance seemed healthy. Our stand experienced high levels of footfall with OTs enquiring about our fully modular Mascot cot and renowned Rotoflex rotational bed. The Mascot Mk2 now provides the best cost effective choice for families, as its pioneering flexibility means further cots do not need to be purchased when user needs change. In addition, our Rotoflex continues to deliver the ultimate and most accomplished solution to assist individuals with getting into and out of bed. It truly delivers independence, as it is a real alternative to hoisting and carer assistance. In this situation the bed can pay for itself many times over as the cost of care at home or in a residential setting is so high.”
Liam concluded: “Engaging face-to-face with healthcare professionals is always so important for us so we can listen, understand and resolve many of the current challenges faced by OTs in relation to assisted care cots and beds. During the two days, we also reiterated the importance of our seven-day suitability guarantee and comprehensive assessment process to all OTs.”

Delivering safety, great looks, affordability without compromising quality and full modular adaptability – the new Mk 2 Mascot is the flexible solution for changing user needs.
Rotoflex® powered rotational bed
The Theraposture Rotoflex truly delivers independence, as it is a real alternative to hoisting and carer assistance. In this situation the bed can pay for itself many times over as the cost of care at home or in a residential setting is so high.
The Rotoflex can be electrically operated to rotate to either side of the bed to ensure that it is compatible with a variety of room situations. In addition to the unique rotation, the Rotoflex also has powered profiling and variable height function with the latter helping to achieve a standing transfer if needed. This unique adjustable and full rotating bed can be installed as a single, or within a double combination bed so partners with varying mobility needs can still sleep together.
