Theraposture, the UK’s leading specialist in assistive beds and cots, has achieved significant interest from Occupational Therapists at the OT Show (26-27 Nov, Stand E40, NEC), whilst successfully supporting Newlife Foundation for Disabled Children and Symmetrikit Postural Care.
Working closely with Occupational Therapists (OTs) since 1981, Theraposture continues to be a respected supplier of bespoke, hand-built adjustable beds, chairs and cots. Its products enhance comfort, safety and well being for individuals living with mobility difficulties and greatly assist those offering care. Theraposture personalised assessments are highly regarded by OTs as they ensure their clients always receive the ideal solution to meet individual needs. This is furthered by Theraposture’s 14-day Suitability Guarantee and fully inclusive warranties that provide peace of mind. These services were explained to large numbers of healthcare professionals at the show, along with the chance to win an iPad Mini and see the original patented Rotoflex bed and the modular Mascot Mark 2 cot.
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.
In addition to its joint showcase with Newlife, Theraposture also worked alongside Symmetrikit Postural Care to demonstrate complete sleeping solutions. On stand C30, a Theracare bed from Theraposture was displayed with a Symmetrikit Sleep System that together, provide high levels of safety, accessibility and assistance with correct postural positioning. 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. The Theracare bed provides the powered function of a variable height bed, but with the added advantage of low access.
Liam Braddell, Theraposture Sales Director said: “I am delighted to say our partnerships with Newlife and Symmetrikit at the OT Show have proven successful. 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.”
