Theraposture Rotoflex 235 Plus – Rotating bed

 

Liam Braddell, Theraposture Sales Director explains:

liam-braddell“Our new Rotoflex 235 Plus rotating bed system has been developed to accommodate those who only need a 90cm wide bed for one person, in a standard wood veneer finish.

It is referred to as a “Plus” because it comes with a patented Powered Rising Heel Support and has a safe working load of up 235kg. Through highly considered design and ergonomics, this streamlined bed provides an appropriate solution for more users without complex adjustment and bespoke features.

It is the culmination of two decades of expertise and understanding that is focused on delivering user independence and significant care cost savings. As with all Rotoflex beds, the new Rotoflex 235 Plus can pay for itself in months when compared to the high cost of carer assistance – reducing budget pressures on statutory services and private purchasers.”


The Rotoflex Range

Often copied but never equaled, the patented Rotoflex from Theraposture is the market leading and trusted powered turning bed.

It moves a user from a recumbent to fully upright seated position. It is the only rotational bed range that is available with a Powered Rising Heel Support and includes a multitude of unique patented features through a detailed design refined over 20 years.

Save up to £27,500 on care costs

  • Proven to typically save up to £27,500 in annual care costs when two carers are reduced to none.
  • Will pay for itself after 4 months and then saves money thereafter.

The Rotoflex can reduce assistance from others thus allowing users to get into and out of bed on their own terms. The independence enabling Rotoflex is often used by those with progressive neurological conditions such as MS and Parkinson’s and can be an alternative option to hoisting.


Liam continues:

“With the introduction of this new bed it is important to once again highlight the key differences our Rotoflex range provides compared to the many copies.

Manufactured with high grade materials, electronics and mechanisms, the lifting frame is extremely stable and will not tip over.

It includes vertical lift in the seated position which is critical for safe sit-to-stand transfers, especially for users with neurological conditions and resultant unpredictable leg strength / balance issues. It will not tip you forward like other products which can cause the potential for a fall.

The Powered Rising Heel Support means that the entire length of the leg can be fully supported when elevated in bed which offers many health benefits – this is only available with the Theraposture Rotoflex. The new unique mattress retainer system ensures consistent and anti-sheer movement and the modular seat depth provides optimum postural support. No other rotating bed range delivers the care excellence our Rotoflex is proven to provide – Theraposture and the Rotoflex are the only considered choice.”
