New for this year’s event

Theraposture will be displaying its Home and Away travel care cot. This cot has been developed for children who need safe surroundings at home or whilst travelling, such as those with severe Autism or challenging behaviour. This portable safe environment includes extensive padding with large windows for generous visibility and easy access for uncompromised care. The clever Home and Away design allows fast assembly and dis-assembly using strong zip and Velcro fastenings – hence repositioning is hassle-free. Each constituent section is lightweight so single-handed lifting and carrying is strain free and will fit in most standard cars.

If young users required more postural variety then powered functionality can be added to the sleeping surface such as height adjustment and/or profiling. Variable height provides extra safety for carers as the risk of back injury can be eliminated as the need to bend when providing support is greatly reduced. As with all Theraposture products, the new Home and Away cot is a tailor-made, hand crafted solution. Each cot is specifically designed to meet individual needs with a range of footprint, door and side sizes. Window configurations are flexible along with an impressive range of specialist mattresses for maximum user comfort and family peace of mind.

Alongside the Home and Away cot Theraposture will be displaying the latest version of its power-assisted Theracare Flex bed with 2-bar high sided rails and the ever-popular cost-effective Mascot Mk2 cot. The modular Mascot is the only truly future-proofed care cot that can be adapted to meet changing needs. This negates the need to purchase a new cot in the future so personal and public expenditure can be reduced. The Mascot, like the entire cot range from Theraposture, fully meets all relevant safety standards and come with a fully inclusive 3-year warranty. It is held in stock at Theraposture’s Wiltshire factory for fast delivery.

Liam Braddell, Theraposture Sales Director concludes:

liam-braddell“Kidz North is always a busy show for us as many healthcare professionals and families regard Theraposture as the considered choice. Our products are proven and trusted to deliver safety, comfort and durability that not only helps young disabled users, but benefits whole families and their carers. We look forward to showcasing our new Home and Away bed at EventCity for the first time and encourage all visitors to come and enjoy our free chocolates!”

In-house OT expertise

Theraposture has been a caring and ethical, family-run business since 1981. It provides one of the most comprehensive ranges of power-assisted care cots and beds for children with varying needs.

Through an assessment led approach and the in-house expertise of an OT, Theraposture delivers positive outcomes for families, therapists and carers. Its quality, durable and cost effective equipment ensures safety, dignity and comfort are maximised for clients whilst variable height minimises the risk of back and muscle strain for carers.

Theraposture is trusted by the charity Newlife to provide their Emergency Equipment Loan Service which can provide specialist care cots within 72 hours to children at risk of serious injury or with unstable life threatening/limiting conditions.

What’s on display at Kidz to Adultz Middle?

Theraposture Trusted Assessors with the Mascot Care Cot

The Mascot is the only, fully modular cot that can be adapted as a child’s needs change – hence negating the need to purchase a new product in the future.

This represents significant cost savings and ensures a space-appropriate design is provided throughout the lifetime of the child. The Mascot incorporates multiple future-proofed features in particular, it is the only fully modular care bed that will allow conversion from 4-door (1 side) opening to 8-door (opening both sides). This is essential if care needs progress and access is required to both sides of the cot.

The Mascot is available with variable height, mattress profiling and anti-/Trendelenburg functionality. If safety padding is required, Theraposture is renowned for handcrafting precision solutions so entrapment risks are eliminated – enhanced by the recent introduction of larger soft windows for greater visibility inside and out.

Shaun Masters, OT, will be on hand throughout Kidz Middle to discuss how therapists and families can make the considered choice of care cot. He will explain, from his experience, how the correct, future-proofed cot provides multiple benefits for the whole family. Shaun will be joined by fellow Theraposture Trusted Assessors and a representative from Newlife, the charity for disabled children – all ready to discuss individual requirements on a one-to-one basis.
