Theraposture Mascot Care Cot delivers essential safety, comfort and care to 5-year-old disabled Barney and family from Cornwall

Barney Clark is able to sleep safely and enjoy a greater sense of security thanks to a trusted and proven height adjustable Mascot Mk2 Care Cot from Theraposture.

1520therabarnabyclark1hr1

With three young siblings Barney is a remarkable boy who survived a brain tumour and a 10% chance of survival at one-yearold. Following surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy Barney continues to enhance his abilities however he lives with several disabilities associated with co-ordination and balance. To remain safe and comfortable when at rest it is essential that he has an appropriate care cot that protects him as Barney has no safety awareness. He can achieve a sit-to-stand with assistance however Barney cannot maintain a standing position unaided.

During the night Barney needs to be connected to his ventilator via his tracheostomy and hence must sleep with his head in an elevated position. Before owning a power adjustable Mascot, Barney and his family were trying to manage these challenges using an outdated white metal high-sided cot kindly loaned by the Royal Cornwall Hospital. This bed quickly became impractical as Barney grew larger which resulted in his Mum, Amy, rapidly seeking a better solution.

Amy is a qualified hospital Doctor training for General Practice and initially discussed Barney’s needs with her assigned community nursing team and Occupational Therapist. Read the full case study here
