The Rotoflex is a trusted, proven and effective solution that allows users to manage bed transfers on their own terms. Its powered functionality assists individuals with getting into and out bed and achieving a seated position ready for a standing transfer. This results in significant cost savings as help from carers is not required and lifestyle benefits are enhanced through user independence.

The example on display consisted of a Rotoflex double combination bed with contemporary oak surround – demonstrating how Theraposture power-adjustable beds can blend into any domestic setting. Alongside the Rotoflex, the latest Mascot Mark 2 cot was also showcased which provides a ‘future-proof, whole life solution’ through adaptable design. It meets the changing requirements of a disabled child and eliminates the need to purchase and specify new cots in the future – the most cost effective concept ever.

Sharing Theraposture’s stand, Heather Campbell, Awareness Manager for Newlife Foundation for Disabled Children was able to raise awareness of the charity and demonstrate its connections to this proven assistive furniture specialist. Theraposture is an established supplier to Newlife as it provides essential, supportive equipment to children with disabilities and life-limiting conditions. This proven relationship delivers positive outcomes for disabled children and their families.

Maintaining the correct posture whilst asleep is so important for individuals with specific conditions, especially in relation to children who are continually developing and growing.

We are proud to support the positive outcomes that Newlife deliver for so many families across the UK and believe Symmetrikit solutions lead the market in terms of postural care. Both our original Rotoflex bed and pioneering Mascot cot received considerable interest from OTs during both days. OTs were able to understand first-hand why our products have been trusted by healthcare professionals and their clients since 1981.”

In addition to meeting senior representatives from Theraposture and Newlife, all OTs who visit stand E40 can be entered into a free prize draw to win the latest iPad Air tablet from Apple. This high value prize will be available to all visitors alongside free information regarding the Theraposture range of pioneering products. These details are essential for OTs when compiling client assessments and reports for case managers. Highly experienced Theraposture Assessors will be on hand throughout the exhibition to explain how their products deliver trusted independence in the community, while Newlife representatives will be able to explain to families the wide range of services they offer to help disabled, life-limited and terminally ill children.

Theraposture is a family run business established in 1981, which is the preferred choice of many OTs recommending power-adjustable beds, chairs and care cots to clients requiring mobility assistance at home. This Wiltshire-based specialist supports the whole UK with trusted solutions and ethic assessment procedures that ensure vulnerable individuals can remain independent and avoid expensive care costs. It is a long standing supplier to Newlife Foundation which is a charity dedicated to providing essential, supportive equipment to children with disabilities and life-limiting conditions. Theraposture works closely with the charity to ensure positive outcomes for disabled children and their families.

Liam Braddell, Theraposture Sales Director explained: “We are delighted to be offering OTs a unique package of benefits at the OT Show this year. We understand accurate, proven product information is essential for OTs when making informed recommendations regarding assistive furniture. Hence the details we will be handing out, will ensure their clients are prescribed the ideal solution for greater dignity, safety and care. We will also be demonstrating why our Mascot Mk2 cot and Rotoflex bed are such popular choices with so many OTs nationwide. The 2013 OT Show was a significant success for us and we anticipate and even busy show this year. I would encourage all OTs who prescribe assistive beds, chairs and cots, to visit stand E40 and enter the free prize draw to win the latest iPad Air.”

In terms of product, the Theraposture showcase this year will include the revolutionary Mascot Mk2 care cot and a highly respected double combination Rotoflex bed in oak.

The latest Mascot is the first fully modular cot design in the UK and provides complete flexibility to meet the changing needs of a disabled child. It is a ‘future-proof, whole life’ solution that eliminates the need to purchase and specify new cots if care requirements develop in the future – the most cost effective concept ever.

Theraposture’s Rotoflex bed 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 and move the user from a recumbent position to a seated position, ready for a standing transfer. It can be specified as a single bed or part of a double combination so partners with varying mobility difficulties can still sleep together. In addition to its smooth and controlled rotational movement, the Rotoflex provides powered profiling and variable height function and can be fitted to either side of a double bed.

THERAPOSTURE ADJUSTABLE CARE COTS AND BEDS PROVE HIGHLY POPULAR AT KIDZ SCOTLAND

Theraposture, the UK leading specialist in power-adjustable care cots and beds, has received high numbers of visitors to its stand at Kidz Scotland held at the Royal Highland Exhibition Centre, Edinburgh.

Theraposture’s Assessor for Scotland and Northern England, Jean-Luc Durand, explains the unique benefits of Theraposture cots and beds to Occupational Therapists at Kidz Scotland.

The Assessors on the stand were busy throughout the event demonstrating the benefits of choosing Theraposture sleeping solutions to therapists and parents of disabled children. The three products on display all equally raised significant interest, which included the fully modular Mascot Mark 2 cot, niche Safe-T Bed and padded Hannah cot. The Safe-T bed was combined with a Symmetrikit sleep system to demonstrate how together, improved postural positioning can be achieved at night. Symmetrikit also exhibited a Theracare Low adjustable bed on its stand which was equally as popular.

Liam Braddell, Theraposture Sales Director commented: “Kidz Scotland has been an excellent event for us. It has continued the success we achieved at Kidz South with visitors keen to understand more about the unique differences our cots and beds deliver. The overall atmosphere of the show was positive and refreshing as we engaged with so many new faces who were attending a Kidz exhibition for the first time.”

Liam continued: “A major topic of conversation for us was the cost effective benefits of the Mascot cot. As it is the first, fully modular design available in the UK, it can be easily adapted if user needs change. This eliminates the need to purchase new cots in the future and hence provides significant cost savings. We also spent considerable time explaining our trusted assessment procedures and seven-day suitability guarantee. Kidz Scotland appeared to be well attended and we intend to exhibit again next year. We look forward to welcoming an equally high number of families and healthcare professionals to our next product showcase at Kidz-up-North in November.”

Theraposture will be on stand B10 at Kidz-up-North, 20th November, Event City, Manchester.
