Occupational Therapist, Shaun Masters, and Theraposture Trusted Assessors are inviting all Healthcare Professionals attending the OT Show to visit stand G51 to discuss specific client case challenges regarding bed transfers, and to see possible solutions firsthand.
The Occupational Therapy Show, Stand G51, NEC, Birmingham, 23 and 24 November 2022.
Open from 9:00am.
Finding solutions to bed transfer problems that are safe, provide independence for the client, and reduce the need for carer assistance is a priority for many Occupational Therapists. The cost of care is high and is ongoing. Care packages are difficult to put in place and clients can be stuck in hospitals or nursing homes because resources are not always available to support them in the community.
At the OT Show this year, Theraposture is focusing on solutions to getting in and out of bed when living in the community. Alongside its ‘Getting legs into bed’ on stand CPD seminars, this specialist team is encouraging all Occupational Therapists to come along and discuss individual cases and to see and to try the possible solutions available. Assessments can be booked and cost comparisons with the cost of care can be given, to help with justification and reasoning.
Demonstrations of the patented Rotoflex rotating bed range and Theracare Leg Lifter will be available through the two days of the OT Show 2022. The Rotoflex 235 Mk2 will be on stand G51 – the latest iteration of the OT Show ‘Excellence in Caring’ Award-winning bed. Theraposture provides the largest range of rotating beds in the UK which deliver powered profiling, rotation and variable height to move a user from a recumbent to fully upright seated position. Once in the chair position, vertical lift ensures sit-to-stand transfers are controlled and safe, without any tipping action which is common with beds that attempt to copy the patented Rotoflex.
Healthcare professionals will also be able to discuss options regarding bed sizes, pressure management mattresses, accessories, and finishes – either for beds for one person or couples to share. Over and above day-to-day practical benefits, the wider implications of using a Rotoflex will also be highlighted in terms of improved occupation, mental health, and well-being.
