The Rotoflex solution

Getting in and out of bed is a problem for many and the Rotoflex is often the solution. It is a patented, power-assisted adjustable bed that rotates to transfer users in and out of bed from a seated position to a lying position at the touch of a button. when sitting in the chair position the Rotoflex provides a safe and secure vertical lift, intentionally without tipping, so a controlled sit-to-stand can be achieved with no risk of being tipped out if not ready.

The Rotoflex is also the only rotating bed that can have a powered rising foot section so that the entire leg and foot will be supported when elevated – essential for reducing pressure and circulation issues and comfort. The Theraposture Rotoflex range includes a low access, a heavy duty, and wider models in a choice of finishes, so the widest bespoke choice on the market. Theraposture work in partnership with Parkinson’s UK and the MS Society and together provide assistance with the cost of their products.

Electrically adjustable cots

The electrically adjustable Mascot cot is equally as popular with families and Healthcare Professionals. It is fully adaptable to meet changing user needs so offers a solution for life. Negating the need to purchase new cots in the future should needs change. Because of the modular nature and the fantastic quality, the Mascot is the most cost-effective option whilst maintaining all the quality handcraftsmanship you would expect from the market leader. Steve and Glen will demonstrate the Mascot’s flexible functionality at AccessAbility alongside all their unique benefits.

Since 1981, Theraposture has been a trusted market leading specialist in electrically adjustable care cots for disabled children and adults. Its Trusted Assessors support families and Occupational Therapists with a clinically led assessment service which focuses on achieving positive outcomes for all. Theraposture cots are specified for individual needs, so comfort, safety, personal choices, and peace of mind are all considered for everyone. The future-proofed Mascot cot is an important part of Theraposture’s proven range. The Mascot is a modular system that can be configured from stock, and even adapted to meet changing needs. To meet the rising demand for urgent requirements, Theraposture have created two STOCK cot specifications, each including a mattress, full-height soft padding and clear soft windows.

As we are all aware, there is currently a worldwide shortage of raw materials and problems with supply chains in all sectors, including Assistive Technology. This means that adjustable beds and care cots often take longer to provide from most suppliers.

Theraposture already have healthy stocks of Mascot Cot Beds and wipeable mattress. To create the two stock bed packages, they have also made padding in neutral colours with clear soft windows. This means that beds can be ordered and delivered typically within two weeks so the most urgent situations, such as safety risks and hospital discharges can be comfortably managed.

Theraposture provide all products with their 14-day Suitability Guarantee. All Theraposture beds, including the Mascot, comply with safety regulations DIN BS EN 60601-2-52 and DIN BS EN 50637:2017.

On stand G3 Theraposture will also provide live demonstrations of its Mascot cot and a range of useful literature, case studies and details regarding its partnership with Newlife, the disabled children’s charity. Theraposture Trusted Assessors will be on hand to discuss individual cot bed needs on a one-to-one basis, whilst offering free chocolates and tape measures for Occupational Therapists and families.

Theraposture has been an ethical and trusted bed specialist since 1981. Its ‘in-house’ Occupational Therapist (OT) and Trusted Assessors provide a comprehensive and clinically led assessment service to assist disabled children, families and therapists. This process provides an in-depth appraisal of each client’s needs, wants and risks. Part of this service includes the provision of free documented assessment reports which significantly benefit OTs – by providing key facts to assist with justification and clinical reasoning.

Theraposture Trusted Assessors work alongside OTs by providing knowledgeable assistance through their experience and understanding. Theraposture’s range of market-leading height adjustable and profiling specialist sleeping solutions offer safety, comfort and longevity. They also ensure safe working heights for care givers. As equipment experts, Theraposture Trusted Assessors help therapists prescribe the correct and most appropriate solution. Once a bed or cot is supplied, there is a 14-day Suitability Guarantee period which ensures that product suitability is proven rather than hoped for. Therefore, the OT-designed assessment process from Theraposture is vitally important in delivering a positive outcome.

Shaun Masters, OT and Trusted Assessor, comments:

“Kidz Middle will once again provide an opportunity for professionals and parents to discuss individual bed needs with friendly and understanding Theraposture Trusted Assessors. Our clinical assessment process will be explained which involves a detailed written analysis of topics such as mobility, behaviour, sleep, posture, pressure care and feeding – which all signpost towards the most appropriate and considered solution.

The Theraposture Assessors have an unsurpassed level of experience in terms of which cot features assist with which paediatric conditions. Further to this, the range of product available from Theraposture is unrivalled.”

The Mascot is the only fully modular bed system that can be reconfigured to meet changing needs. The Mascot is the considered choice in power-assisted cot beds.

The recently launched Home and Away is a strong, heavily padded and portable bed that provides safety and comfort for children with enhanced behavioural challenges. This quality padded solution fully dismantles and can be easily transported in a standard car, making it ideal as an occasional specialist travel bed.

Award-winning Theraposture returns to OT Show with latest Rotoflex and adjustable bed innovations

On stand J40 at the OT Show, Theraposture supported by Shaun Masters, Occupational Therapist, will be presenting the new Rotoflex 235 Plus Mk2 turning bed alongside the popular Theracare Leg Lifter and a bespoke double combination adjustable bed.


The OT Show, J40, NEC, Birmingham, 27 and 28 November 2019


Theraposture has been a respected supplier of quality adjustable beds, chairs and care cots since 1981. Its  Rotoflex 235 Plus turning bed won the respected OT Show ‘Excellence in Caring’ Award last year.

Supported by OT Shaun Masters, the Theraposture stand at the OT Show will display a series of proven solutions for safe bed transfers that focus on community enablement.

 

 

 

 

Theraposture Trusted Assessors work closely with OTs during their clinically led assessments so that individual client needs are always met in terms of appropriate sleeping solutions. At the OT Show, Theraposture will be demonstrating a series of products that are suitable for varying client abilities with a focus on enablement within the community. These power-assisted solutions are proven to reduce care costs and relieve strain on NHS and social care budgets. Through ownership of either a Theraposture Rotoflex bed, leg lifter or adjustable bed, individuals with restricted mobility are able to improve their own occupational performance and sleep hygiene.

Shaun Masters, OT and Theraposture Trusted Assessor comments:

“We welcome all healthcare professionals to visit stand J40 to discuss individual client needs on a one-to-one basis and to discover why Theraposture products are the considered choice. We will demonstrate power-assisted solutions that offer a range of support for adults – from assistance with getting legs into bed through to complete rotational support from a sitting to a supine position. This product series delivers multiple clinical and well-being benefits and with the appropriate prescription, aims to encourage active mobility while maintaining safety and control. The 14-day Suitability Guarantee on all Theraposture products ensures a positive outcome every time, along with client peace of mind.”

Shaun adds:

“Maintaining client mobilisation is the priority here, however by choosing Theraposture products, pressure on NHS and social care budgets can also be reduced. The Rotoflex rotational bed range for example, is proven to reduce carer intervention from two-to-none – in these scenarios up to £27,000 per annum can be saved in care costs. By visiting us at the OT Show my fellow peers will be able to, not only understand these advantages, but gain CPD hours by attending my on stand ‘Getting legs into bed‘ seminars.”

On stand J40 the following solutions will be displayed:

Award-winning Theraposture Rotoflex 235 Plus Mk2 – part of the largest range of rotational beds available, the latest Rotoflex 235 Plus builds on the success of its predecessor. This bed for one person provides a feature-rich, standard solution that is suitable for the majority of individuals who need powered, rotational assistance to move from a supine to fully upright seated position with their feet on the floor.

This Rotoflex is totally unique – it is the only rotational bed in the world with a Powered Rising Foot Support for supported leg elevation. Traditionally all rotating beds have had to encompass a static foot section of mattress so that the rotating platform would not clash with the footboard, not anymore. With the use of one controller, the Rotoflex 235 Plus Mk2 provides powered elevation of a separate foot section with complete profiling, rotational and variable height. Being able to raise feet and legs in bed in a supportive and controlled manner can provide a wider range of health and well-being benefits.

The Rotoflex is the original turning bed refined over 20 years which is patented and cannot be directly copied. The bespoke Theraposture range includes low access, bariatric and double combination versions available with a variety of specialist mattresses. The Rotoflex is regularly prescribed by therapists as it includes a vertical lift in the seated position ie. it does not tip users forward like other beds or riser chairs.

This is critical for safe sit-to-stand transfer especially for those with strength and balance inconsistencies resulting from neurological conditions.

Theraposture Double Combination Bed – handcrafted, bespoke and durable adjustable beds for couples to share. Theraposture is a specialist in custom made beds with an infinite choice of size, style, functions and finish that allow people to continue sleeping together despite varying abilities. Consisting of two separate mattresses and adjustable sleeping platforms in one surround, each side can be fitted with electrically powered profiling and variable height. A Rotoflex turning system can also be integrated within the design so individuals requiring greater assistance can access the bed and adjust positioning without disturbing their partner.

Combined with a specialist range of mattresses for varying degrees of pressure management through to numerous safety devices, Theraposture beds offer hospital-grade strength and support within an attractive domestic look. Steel frames and mechanisms deliver better performance when combined to cheaper wooden alternatives, so longer term value and reliability is assured.

Theracare Leg Lifter – compatible with most types of bed, this reliable solution lifts legs up, over and onto a sleeping surface. Unlike other similar devices, the Theracare Leg Lifter positions a user’s legs nearer the centre of the bed, so minimal repositioning is required. The motor is quiet and strong enough to lift severely oedemic (swollen) legs. A simple yet highly effective solution for individuals with postural control.
