Theraposture Limited, the UK-leading specialist in assistive beds, chairs and care cots, has appointed Steve Keetley as its new Trusted Assessor for central England – covering the Midlands to the east coast.
Based in Westbury, Wiltshire, Theraposture has been established since 1981 and is regarded as first choice by many in the public and private sector for bespoke, hand-built adjustable furniture. Theraposture products deliver greater independence at home with extended value, so expensive carer costs or relocation can be avoided. As established BHTA members, this family-run company is renowned for ethical provision of quality products through its clinically led personal assessments, 14-day suitability guarantee and committed after-sales support. This customer-centric ethos will continue to be delivered by Theraposture’s latest Trusted Assessor – Steve Keetley.
Steve, 45 from Grimsby, Lincolnshire, brings a wealth of mobility and healthcare experience to Theraposture. During his career, Steve held the positions of Product Development Manager and Regional Sales Manager at Sunrise Medical for over six years. He was responsible for growing the business across Europe and achieved significant success in Northern Ireland. During this time, Steve accrued extensive product knowledge and a comprehensive understanding of mobility-restrictive conditions – which he will now leverage when assisting Theraposture clients.
Steve comments: “I will always have empathy for clients who have been struggling with independence as my late Mother was a wheelchair user. From an early age, I became familiar with her difficulties resulting from conditions such as severe arthritis and Kyphosis. Combined with my commercial experience, this has given me real insight to the difficulties people can face and how important it is to remain at home on your own terms. The Theraposture name is synonymous with trust and peace of mind, hence I am proud to part of this successful and caring company.”
Steve continues: “I have enjoyed completing my extensive Trusted Assessor training over the past few months and have been thoroughly impressed by the ethical approach Theraposture takes in terms of product provision. The whole team is totally focused on ensuring every customer receives the ideal solution for his or her needs and product quality is second-to-none. When you consider the precision and reliability of the German engineering in our original Rotoflex bed, there is no other rotating bed that comes close.”
David Holtum, Theraposture Managing Director, concluded: “It has been a pleasure introducing Steve to our existing and developing customer base and I believe he will be a real asset for Theraposture. His pro-active and understanding attitude is exactly what we demand of our Trusted Assessors. He joins the business at an exciting time as we continue to grow and introduce new services.”
Outside of Theraposture, Steve is a keen collector of Lambretta and Vespa scooters and has two daughters aged 21 and 27.
