NEW: Optional rising foot support for Theraposture Rotoflex beds

The original and trusted Rotoflex is the ONLY rotating bed that can be supplied with an electrically rising foot section to provide fully supported leg elevation.

Rotoflex foot supportPreviously all rotating beds had to include a static mattress section between the rotational sleeping surface and the footboard – to ensure the arc of the turning mattress and legs did not clash with the footboard.

 

Not anymore with the introduction of this pioneering option from Theraposture which provides invaluable relief from leg-related circulation, pressure and fluid retention issues.

This new feature can only be specified for Rotoflex beds from Theraposture – either within new products or retrofitted to existing models. With over 20 years of refinement and advanced German engineering, the Rotoflex profiles, rotates and raises disabled users so they can achieve safe sit-to-stand transfers.

NEW: Age UK Beaumont adjustable bed

Part of an additional, more luxurious range, the Beaumont bed from Age UK is a new contemporary design that encompasses extensive in-built technology.

Theraposture works with Newlife to provide specialist cots and beds to children in desperate need through the charity’s ‘Emergency Equipment Loan’ Service.

This service is unique in the UK and provides appropriate equipment to disabled children who are at serious risk of injury or in urgent need due to shortened life expectancy.

Theraposture team with OT

How the Newlife Emergency Equipment Loan Service works

On receipt of an emergency application to supply a specialist cot or bed, Newlife commissions Theraposture to deliver the specialist equipment required, usually within 72 hours of receiving the order. Theraposture also installs and maintains the beds once in situ.

Free of charge for families

Newlife’s Emergency Equipment Loan Service is completely free of charge for families and loan periods typically last six months. This enables Newlife’s care services team to work closely with the family and their health or social care professionals with a view to securing long-term provision of a bed. Once the loan period has ended, Theraposture can organise to have the bed or cot collected from the family’s home if it is not required permanently.

Liam Braddell from Theraposture explains:

“We are proud to work with Newlife to provide quality sleeping solutions to disabled children in desperate need. Newlife’s Emergency Equipment Loan Services provide a vital solution in often sensitive and urgent situations. We can assist Healthcare Professionals if they consider a permanent product purchase following the loan period. Purchasing adjustable care cots from us is popular with OT’s as commonly this provides like-for-like replacement of loan equipment and hence reduces risk. The loan product has already been proven and very much liked by the family, the child and the carers – hence appropriate cot provision is assured. Add to this our highly competitive pricing and proven product reliability, real long term value can be gained by all who choose our products, we are the considered choice.”

Theraposture Trusted Assessors with the Mascot Care Cot

This fully modular paediatric cot is the only solution that provides complete adaptability to solve changing user needs – negating the purchasing of new cots in the future.

The Mascot can encompass variable height, mattress profiling and anti-Trendelenberg /Trendelenburg positioning which provides a multitude of care benefits for children and reduces the risk of back injury for carers. These beds, like the entire cot range from Theraposture meet all relevant safety standards and come with a fully inclusive 3-year warranty. The Mascot is held in stock at Theraposture’s Wiltshire factory for fast delivery.

Future-proofed Mascot cot proves popular at relocated Kidz-to-Adultz South

We welcomed a healthy number of visitors to its exhibition stand at Kidz-to-Adultz South

Debuting at Farnborough International Exhibition & Conference Centre, Kidz South provided the opportunity for young people with disabilities, families and healthcare professionals to see the latest in assistive products and services.

New location

This modern and accessible venue delivered a fresh experience and attracted new visitors who had not previously attended a Kidz event.

Product demonstrations

The Trusted Assessors from Theraposture were able to demonstrate their quality adjustable bed and care cot range to a new audience who were seeking proven and safe sleeping solutions. The Mascot Mk2 with its truly future-proofed design proved to be very popular as it provides a cot that can change as user needs change.

Mascot cot and improved safety

For example, it is the only flexible cot design that is changed from 4-door (1 side opening) to 8-door opening (both sides) – hence care and safety can be maintained with one purchase, irrespective of changing needs. This is why the Mascot MK2 is the considered choice as it represents outstanding value for money.

Theraposture team with Newlife

Theraposture were supported once more on their stand by a representative from their partnering charity – Newlife, The Charity for Disabled Children.

Theraposture work very closely with the charity to provide Newlife’s Emergency Equipment Loans service – helping children at risk of serious injury and those in urgent need due to life-threatening/limiting conditions. Theraposture supplies, delivers, installs, maintains and collects its assistive products on behalf of Newlife. This service is FREE and often results in a solution being in place within 72 hours.

Theraposture will be exhibiting next at:
Kidz-to-Adultz Wales and West, 5th July 2018, Thornbury Leisure Centre, Bristol. BS35 3JB. Stand A20.

Theraposture to extend market-leading Rotoflex bed range with pioneering new additions at OT Show

Theraposture will be reaffirming its position at the forefront of rotational bed solutions with the introduction of additional Rotoflex designs at the Occupational Therapy Show (stand D32, NEC, 22-23 November).

demonstrating adjustable beds at the OT Show

The Theraposture stand at the 2017 OT Show will host the unveiling of ground-breaking Rotoflex bed innovations.

Solutions for OTs

Since 1981, Theraposture has been the considered choice for OTs seeking quality, reliable and proven rotational bed systems. The powered Rotoflex from Theraposture is the original and trusted turning bed that moves a user from a recumbent to fully upright seated position at the side of the bed. Its unique functionality includes vertical seat lift so users achieve safer sit-to-stand transfers and can enjoy greater independence at home. The Rotoflex range from Theraposture is the widest available which provides OTs and their clients with appropriate product provision every time. This range has just been extended with the introduction of two new Rotoflex models and a ground-breaking retro-fit option.

  • Proven to typically save up to £27,500 in annual care costs when two carers are reduced to none.
  • Can eliminate the need for moving and handling assistance so users can access and exit a bed on their own terms.
  • Lifestyle benefit is of significant value for all users especially those with progressive neurological conditions such as MS and Parkinson’s.
  • Owners are able to remain at home for longer without the expense and inconvenience of relocation into residential care.
  • Offers a solution to a wider demographic of people who can now benefit from comfort, safety and peace of mind.

Liam Braddell, Theraposture Sales Director comments:

“I would like to invite all healthcare professionals onto our stand at the OT Show – the launch of our new Rotoflex beds is not to be missed. I believe these additional designs represent a breakthrough in ergonomics and support for end users. They build on the proven performance of our Rotoflex range with the addition of extra functionality, functionality that resolves a common problem.”

Liam continues:

“There may now be other rotating beds, but there is only one Rotoflex and we are going to explain why the Rotoflex is notably different, unique in its design and functionality, protected from direct copy and completely trusted for over 20 years. Our Trusted Assessors will be joined by the German inventor of the Rotoflex so OTs have the opportunity to understand why this turning bed solution is truly the
considered choice.”

Alongside these exciting innovations, Theraposture will be demonstrating the ‘future-proof’ Mascot Mark 2 Care Cot and the current popular Rotoflex Low Access bed. Trusted Assessors will be on hand throughout the show to discuss individual client needs and there will be a range of free educational literature available.

Newlife, the charity for Disabled Children, will also be on the stand ready to explain how its close relationship with Theraposture benefits paediatric OTs and their clients.

Safe transfers in and out of bed

Continually enhanced over 20 years, the original and proven Rotoflex provides safe and independent transfers in and out of bed. With smooth powered functionality, it moves users from a recumbent position to a fully upright seated position at the side of the bed.

All Rotoflex models from Theraposture include a vertical lift in the seated position:

  • Safer and more stable sit-to-stand transfers are possible.
  • It will not tip users forward like some inferior copies.
  • With a reduced need for carer assistance, the Rotoflex helps owners:
    • Live in their own home for longer
    • Avoid expensive care costs

  • Compatible with most types of bed whether they are non-adjustable or adjustable.

Friendly and understanding Theraposture Trusted Assessors will be available at Kidz-to- Adultz Scotland to discuss adjustable bed and cot needs on a one-to- one basis.

 

The height adjustable Mascot is the only fully future-proofed cot which can be adapted if needs change.

Through a flexible modular design it negates the need to purchase a new cot in the future and is a life-long solution. The Theracare Low is ideal for users who are prone to falling out of bed as the mattress can be positioned just above floor level. For more active and larger users the Hannah offers increased safety with multiple door heights up to 170cm. Each solution provides personalised comfort without feeling enclosed or restricted. The needs and preferences of users is always foremost during the Theraposture assessment process so the well-being of every child is protected. Its 14-day Suitability Guarantee reinforces this commitment.

Liam explains:

Our user-centric approach will be reiterated at Kidz Scotland. We believe the needs and wants of young users should come first and in our experience disabled children are happier in a Theraposture assistive cot or bed. Parents and OTs also have greater peace of mind which is why our latest educational content aims to empower families and therapists so statutory cot funding is easier. Our #MySafePlace social media activity, recent paediatric case studies and cot funding guide all provide vital
information. Through evidence-based content parents and children can make a more informed decision.
We welcome all professional and consumer visitors at Kidz Scotland to visit stand D5 for our free advice guides and to enjoy our free chocolates!

Theraposture Trusted Assessors with the Mascot Care Cot

 

Since 1981 we have been a leading choice for Occupational Therapists and parents seeking quality power-adjustable cots and beds that are tailor made for individual requirements. Theraposture’s Mascot is a fully modular cot that provides the greatest value on the market as it can be adapted to suit changing needs.

Negating the need to purchase a new cot in the future, the Mascot is the only design available that can offer a safe and comfortable future-proof environment for developing disabled children. Features such as interchangeable 4 or 8-door access, variable height doors and internal divider ensure the cot is always space-appropriate for young users. The range of door inserts such as safe soft Perspex and colourful rails provide a welcoming and reassuring cot that is not visually enclosed – ensuring clear engagement with carers and parents.

Liam Braddell, Theraposture Sales Director comments:

As committed partners with the Newlife children’s charity, we continue to supply our Mascot to more and more parents who prefer a care cot to an adapted, padded room. Many feel that the quality Mascot is the best solution to keep their disabled child safe and also with mattress profiling, better postural support can be provided. When a child needs to use a ventilator at night or be tube fed, the Mascot provides the essential adjustability to raise the head end of the mattress so comfort and safety is maximized. The height adjustment of the Mascot also allows parents to care for their children at safe working heights and helps avoid excessive bending and potential back injury. Parents need peace of mind that their child is safe when sleeping – our Mascot cot is the proven solution to deliver this reassurance. I would like to invite all therapists and parents on to our stand to discover why our Mascot is the considered choice…and to enjoy our free chocolates!”
