Shaun Masters, Occupational Therapist and Trusted Assessor, will be available on stand A3 at Kidz to Adultz Wales and West.

Organised by the charity Disabled Living, regional Kidz exhibitions provide a rewarding opportunity to see the latest assistive products, services and associated charities. Theraposture is a long-standing supporter of these events and will once again be showcasing its popular and trusted range of adjustable cots and beds.

This ethical specialist believes appropriate product provision is only possible through assessment-led services hence works closely with Occupational Therapists to ensure positive outcomes for all. This approach is strengthened by Theraposture’s in-house OT, Shaun Masters, who will be available at Kidz to Adultz Wales & West on stand A3 to discuss individual client cases on a one-to-one basis.

All healthcare professionals, carers and families are invited to meet Shaun so a better understanding of care cots can be achieved. Shaun will highlight the key product features and benefits to consider in relation to various common conditions and challenging behaviour, with particular emphasis on compliance regarding risk of entrapment and safe working heights.

Discussions will be informal and allow visitors to seek solutions to current situations and access topical case studies that illustrate why Theraposture cots are the considered choice. Through his extensive frontline experience, Shaun will offer advice regarding a multitude of care scenarios and how best to maximise safety and comfort for young users. Equally, solving the needs of carers can also be discussed in terms of safe working heights and moving and handling best practice.

Shaun Masters, OT, comments:

“I would encourage all OTs and parents looking for safe adjustable sleeping solutions to meet me at Kidz West. With the support of quality Theraposture cots, such as the popular Mascot Mk2, I will be practically demonstrating the many product features to assess when prescribing a suitable bed.

Design will be explored in relation to specific paediatric conditions so occupational performance and sleep hygiene can be optimised. Topics such as functionality, padding and safety legislative will all be discussed along with the major consideration – future proofing. By specifying truly modular designs, the changing needs of a user can be continually met without the need to purchase new cots in the future. This cost effective approach is of significant importance both for public sector and personal budgets.”

Alongside Mascot cots and a Theracare adjustable bed, there will be free educational information available on the Theraposture stand. This will include informative case studies, funding and ownership guidance and details regarding Theraposture’s provision of cots through Newlife’s Emergency Equipment Loan Services.

All healthcare professionals will receive a free quality tape measure to assist with everyday client assessments and the usual irresistible chocolates will be available to all.

As the leading exhibitor for power-assisted adjustable cots and beds, Theraposture received a steady number of enquiries throughout the exhibition from families, healthcare professionals and end users. All visitors were able to discuss their individual needs with the experienced Trusted Assessors and understand why Theraposture has been the considered choice since 1981.

Product demonstrations and education

In addition to regular demonstrations of the future-proof and fully modular Mascot cot, high sided Hannah cot and adjustable Theracare bed, the Theraposture Trusted Assessors were busy handing out a range of free educational literature. Theraposture believes in supporting clients and therapists throughout the product provision process and hence provides invaluable information to assist with ownership. This material includes cot funding guides, rotating bed guides and engaging case studies that highlight the many authentic benefits of choosing a Theraposture product. Visitors were also informed of Theraposture’s #MySafePlace social media campaign which aims to put the preferences of young cot users first through evidence-based practice, funding advice and accurate legislative information.

Liam Braddell, Theraposture Sales Director, will be available on stand D3 to discuss individual requirements and comments:

“Theraposture are renowned for providing outstanding quality top end products. Our care cots are often chosen as the best because of their quality, design and longevity.  Our prices are now considerably cheaper making it possible to buy the best for much less than perhaps you thought. Plus challenge us before the end of September to beat any comparable child’s bed or cot bed quotation.”

In terms of Theraposture products being showcased at Kidz to Adultz Wales, stand D3 will include the variable height and profiling new 120cm high Mascot Mark 2 cot, Hannah cot with 135cm high sides and Theracare bed.

The Mascot continues to be a popular choice for OTs and parents as it offers a truly ‘future proof’ solution. This highly cost effective cot can be adapted as needs change so that additional cots do not need to be purchased in the future. Combined with the availability of excellent value cot, mattress and padding packages, attending Kidz to Adultz Wales is essential for all professionals and end users looking to purchase a higher value, lower cost paediatric assistive cot or bed.
