Theraposture, the award-winning specialist in adjustable beds, chairs and care cots, will be exhibiting at the virtual Disability Awareness Day
(DAD), 25th – 31st October 2020.
DAD is a ‘pan disability event which promotes a culture that focuses on what disabled people can-do’. Dave Thompson MBE founded the organising charity Warrington Disability Partnership (WDP) in 1991 and the annual DAD event in 1992.
This year there will be 200+ virtual exhibitors.
Held in a tented village on the grounds of Walton Hall, Warrington, DAD provides a wide range of features including assistive product displays, workshops, advice and entertainment for disabled adults and children. It has inspired similar events across the world and has been visited several times by members of the Royal family, the Minister for Disabled People and received a Red Arrows flypast. WDP was presented with the prestigious Queen’s Award for Voluntary Services in 2006 and has raised over £1,000,000 for good causes.
In 2019, the event was supported by 260 exhibitors with over 25,000 visitors attending on the day.
The event has run for 28 years and welcomed over 600,000 people. Due to the pandemic, the 2020 event will be held online.
The main event will take place on 25th October 2020, followed by video seminars, workshops and events until 31 st October. Alongside the varied exhibitors, Theraposture will be displaying its highly respected range of products including the award-winning, patented Rotoflex rotating bed. The Rotoflex is the original and proven solution for getting in and out of bed independently for those with restricted mobility. It is the only turning bed in the world to include a Powered Rising Heel Support which represents a significant innovation for people who need to safely elevate their legs in bed.
The Theraposture stand will also include displays detailing its vast range of power-assisted paediatric cots and electric rise and recliner chairs.
In terms of information and support, there will be an array of engaging PDF literature, videos, and case studies that will be of interest to people with disabilities, families, carers, and Occupational Therapists. Theraposture’s new live video assessments will be featured as they provide a convenient and contactless option for clients seeking product demonstrations.
