Covid-19 / Coronavirus Safe Services – Our Commitment to You

 

Covid-safe adjustable bed and cot services from Theraposture

In this short video, Liam and Tom explain how Theraposture is keeping its adjustable bed, chair and care cot customers safe during the Covid-19 pandemic.

To all of our customers,

The well-being of our customers; ​​our associates and our staff is our absolute priority, and you can be absolutely assured that we have taken all of the necessary precautions to achieve this. We absolutely understand and acknowledge that all of our clients are highly vulnerable and Covid is a serious risk to them. Our processes are applied to all clients without exception. These have been in place ​​since the beginning of the pandemic.

The company’s COVID-19 procedure (G 104) is still in operation. This policy is constantly under review.

washing hands in sink

Our staff wash their hands before and after every customer contact.


Assessments are available either at a client’s home or by personal live video consultation with our in-house OT, using easily accessible technology such as Star-Leaf, Microsoft Teams, WhatsApp, Zoom, or any other platform you are familiar with.
We can arrange for video group consultations involving several persons, so that family members and healthcare professionals can all be involved. Often this will include the use of equipment that will be set up and operated as part of the consultation. Please call 0800 834654 to book an appointment or use our online booking app.


The equipment that we provide is vital in ensuring that our customers can remain independent at home and can avoid residential care settings. For example, by using the Rotoflex Bed it is likely that less external help will be needed to help with bed transfers and therefore the risks of spreading the Covid virus are massively reduced. Before any customer facing contact, we will discuss any requirements that you may have in addition to our standard procedures.

Theraposture virus safety suits and mask

Theraposture’s safety protection suit and masks which we will wear if required.

These are our standard PPE measures available to keep you and our employees safe – we carry these items on our vehicles at all times:

  • A protective mask that is P3 classification (P3 offers the highest filtration effectiveness and retains about 99.95% of particles)
  • Latex or non-Latex protective gloves (dependent on client preferences).
  • Protective overalls for clothing.
  • Protective covers for shoes.
  • Face visors.
  • Anti-bacterial wipes to wipe down all surfaces that we have been in contact with.
  • Alcohol-based hand gels used between each customer contact.

Our staff perform Lateral Flow Tests each week.

Additionally, our staff will wash their hands before and after every customer contact.

When we arrange to visit your home for an assessment or for a delivery/service call, we will ask you detailed questions to establish if there is any risk to you or to us. We will not take any risks that affect the health of our clients or our staff.

We have been operating at full capacity without incident since the pandemic started.

If you have any further questions, please contact us or call Freephone: 0800 834654.


As suppliers of medical devices and assistive technology, we are providing a vital and essential service and will be able to continue to operate safely. We are recognised as an essential supplier and have the backing of the NHS and the BHTA and the major charities that we work with.


We would also like to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued support and loyalty.
The Theraposture Team

Stay safe, stay well and stay independent!

Theraposture Trusted Assessors Steve Keetley and Glen Till at OTAC Leeds.

Organised by the Leeds-based William Merritt Independent Living Centre

Organised by the Leeds-based William Merritt Independent Living Centre, AccessAbility is a fully inclusive event for all ages of people seeking greater independence at home and personal outdoor mobility.

Both public and professional visitors are all welcome to discover the latest products and services available for individuals with additional needs. Theraposture’s Trusted Assessors Steve Keetley and Glen Till will be on hand to provide friendly expert advice regarding sleeping solutions for assured safety, accessibility, and comfort. There will be live demonstrations of the Rotoflex bed, which won the ‘Excellence in Caring’ Award at the Occupational Therapy Show, and the world’s only fully modular care cot, the Mascot Mk2.

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.
