Mike Wardle, 55, reduces care needs through ownership of rotating Rotoflex bed.

Despite living with chronic spinal nerve damage, paralysis and other associated conditions, Mike Wardle, 55 from East Sussex, has been able to reduce his care needs through ownership of a Rotoflex bed.

Mike graduated from Reading University and served in the Police Force for seven years. In 1990, he was assaulted whilst on duty in Gosport resulting in major injuries to his lower spine. He subsequently underwent several back operations which stabilised his vertebrate for 15 years during which time he could walk again. He returned to higher education and qualified with a degree in Radiography which led to a position at the Conquest Hospital, East Sussex. 

Following another seven years in a job he enjoyed, Mike began to feel pain and weakness in his legs again. He was forced to give up his position with the NHS and since then his condition has deteriorated. All associated with his original injury aged 28, Mike now has to manage continual pain resulting from a multitude of issues including a collapsed spine above his original fusion, multi-site osteoarthritis, nerve damage, leg paralysis and a cyst on the brain. 

Despite these challenges Mike focuses on being positive and is able to remain more independent thanks to a powerchair, Motability adapted car and a Rotoflex bed. The Rotoflex from Theraposture is an electrically operated bed that encompasses powered profiling, height adjustment and a rotational action that moves Mike from a lying to a fully upright seated position – ready for a safe wheelchair or sit-to-stand transfer. 

The Rotoflex means Mike can start his day on his own terms – a vital solution for him. Mike explains: “I was originally provided with a profiling bed by Social Services as I needed to keep my spine moving at night to avoid severe stiffness. Plus this stopped my kneecaps being dislocated when I am turned. However the only problem was that I was unable to get in and out bed independently because my quad muscles were too weak and I required two carers to assist me. I needed to find a better solution.”

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

Rotoflex bed from Theraposture delivers ‘future-proof’ independence to Natasha who lives with Familial Dysautonomia

Natasha Lawrence, aged 25 from Mill Hill, north London, is a sociable and positive lady who lives with a challenging disability and is dependent on carers 24/7.

To assist her carers and to gain greater independence Natasha has recently taken ownership of a specialist Rotoflex turning bed system from Theraposture. This dual combination bed provides powered adjustment on one half for Natasha and a variable height and profiling platform for her husband who requires less assistance when getting in and out of bed.

Diagnosed at 14 months old, Natasha has Familial Dysautonomia – a rare genetic disorder that affects the autonomic nervous system, which controls involuntary actions such as digestion, breathing and the regulation of blood pressure and body temperature. Natasha also has Scoliosis and a complication following unsuccessful spinal surgery – hence she uses a wheelchair to remain mobile. Before owning a Rotoflex transferring in and out of bed and repositioning independently at night was very challenging for Natasha. However, now her Double Combination Rotoflex Bed provides electronic profiling, variable height and rotation – empowering Natasha to reposition herself and assisting her carers. It provides a safe working height and allows Natasha to get in and out of bed on her own terms. Transferring to and from bed into her wheelchair is now a much safer daily task and easier for all.
