Parkinsons UK partnership

Parkinson’s disease is a condition in which part of the brain become progressively damaged over many years.

The main symptoms of Parkinson’s are Tremor (involuntary shaking of particular parts of the body), slow movement and stiff and inflexible muscles. Difficulties with sleeping ie. Insomnia is also common with this condition so the need for a comfortable and motorised bed from Theraposture is vital.

As with all neurological conditions such as Multiple Sclerosis, Alzheimer’s and Motor Neurone Disease, a Theraposture electrically operated bed will provide greater independence, care and comfort at home. It will actively encourage better postural positions and improve well being through better sleep.
