Theraposture, the leader in paediatric care cots and adjustable beds, will be showcasing a range of complete sleeping solutions that include complementary products from the postural specialist Symmetrikit at Kidz South.
Stands 313 and 713 – 12th June, Rivermead Leisure Complex, Reading.
Theraposture is a privately owned, family run business based in Wiltshire that has been the leading supplier of bespoke, hand-built adjustable beds, chairs and cots since 1981. Its paediatric care cots and power-adjusted Theracare beds both enhance comfort, safety and wellbeing for young disabled individuals and greatly assist those offering care. All Theraposture products are individually assessed and are backed up by a suitability guarantee and a fully inclusive warranty giving complete peace of mind.
Theraposture has formed a working relationship with Symmetrikit Postural Care so that healthcare professionals and families attending exhibitions, can benefit from seeing adjustable care cots and beds combined with individualised postural support systems.
On stand 313, Theraposture will be demonstrating two recently introduced solutions – the fully modular Mascot MK2 paediatric cot and pioneering new Safe-T Bed, the latter showcased with a Symmetrikit sleep system. A 135cm high padded Hannah cot will also be available on stand 313. Symmetrikit’s stand, 713, will display a popular Theracare Low adjustable bed from Theraposture, combined once more with a Symmetrikit sleep system.
Liam Braddell, Theraposture Sales Director commented: “We are delighted to be combining our expertise with the Symmetrikit Postural Care team at Kidz South. We have reviewed the market for some time and have identified Symmetrikit as an ideal specialist for joint initiatives. Their sleep system is excellent and has been a market-leading solution for over 17 years – it is interestingly unique in a very important way. Their sleep system is the only product offering temperature regulation as oppose to the ‘controlling’ technologies offered by other companies. This has contributed to Symmetrikit achieving the highest score in the respected NHS Buyer’s Guide – written by healthcare professionals within the NHS. Our intention is to help jointly promote our product ranges so that we create greater awareness to therapists and families. We plan to work together at exhibitions and on joint CPD projects.”
NEW Safe-T Bed
Theraposture’s Safe-T Bed has integrated, solid sides that fold down when required and is a new alternative to either traditional care cots/beds, with traditional drop down side rails or cot sides. The Safe-T Bed is ideal for children who require higher lateral protection than provided by traditional style beds with drop down side rails, but do not require a higher-sided care cot solution with doors.
This remarkable sleeping solution is designed to allow the changing needs of a user and their carers, to be continually met and managed by adapting a modular design. The Mascot Mark 2 offers scope to adapt the electrically operated functions together with the option to alter the quantity, height and construction of doors. Delivering safety, affordability without compromising quality, plus full modular flexibility – the Mascot Mark 2 is a future proof, flexible solution.
The height adjustable Hannah care cot range provides ample safe space for an active child. It is available with door heights of 70, 98, 135 and 170 cm and can have openings on either one or both longer sides. Similar to the Mascot, the Hannah is suitable for Theraposture’s fixed or removable, personalised padding and soft double glazed windows allow good visibility without compromising safety. It is available with a range of electrically operated function options such as variable height to assist those helping the user at a safe working height; profiling to assist with positioning and Trendelenburg / Anti-Trendelenburg to tilt the sleeping surface.
The Theracare Low offers all the function of a variable height bed, but with the added advantage of low access. Therapists are increasingly requesting this solution following assessments of users who are at risk of falling out of bed. It importantly allows the sleeping surface to be raised to a safe working height ranging between 23cm and 83cm (without mattress) and therefore this meets the NEW BSEN 60601-2-52 standard. Options include powered profiling of the mattress and three-bar side rails to provide increased effective side rail height. Either mesh-linked padded safety sides or clear, soft transparent safety sides, can be chosen as can padding for the head and foot boards making this a very safe place to be.
