Theraposture equipment remains vital for individuals with restricted mobility to remain independent, safe, and comfortable in their own home. It supplies trusted medical devices that allow people to be less reliant on carers, avoid relocation to residential care and reduce NHS and social services intervention. During the pandemic, Theraposture products, particularly the Rotoflex turning bed, have proven even more vital in reducing pressures on A&E by lowering falls and the chances of contracting Covid from visiting carers. Proven to eliminate care costs in many scenarios and recommended by leading Occupational Therapists, Theraposture electrically powered products will continue to be supplied in the safest, appropriate and ethical manner.

At the start of the pandemic, Theraposture took the lead in Covid safety by rapidly introducing procedures to protect vulnerable customers, Occupational Therapists, and its staff. The business was regarded as exemplary through its use of hospital-grade PPE and robust procedures from the outset, so reassurance was provided to all who came into contact with Theraposture.

Despite legal requirements being relaxed by the Government from 19th July, this high level of protection will be continued by Theraposture Trusted Assessors and technicians to ensure minimal risk and maximum peace of mind.

  • All staff will follow stringent hygiene processes and receive temperature checks at the start of each working day.
  • Lateral flow tests will be completed on a regular basis and all equipment will be thoroughly sanitised before home demonstrations or deliveries.
  • Protective clothing, hospital-grade masks and latex or non-latex gloves will be worn during all visits and social distancing measure will remain.

Liam Braddell, Theraposture Sales Director, comments:

“As ever we are fully focused on the needs of our clients and will not be relaxing any of our Covid safety procedures in the near future. We are recognised as an essential equipment supplier and have the backing of the NHS, BHTA and major charities such as Parkinson’s UK and the MS Society. Our products, such as the award-winning Rotoflex, help with independent bed transfers and therefore drastically reduce the risk of spreading Covid from close contact with carers.”

“In addition, our remote assessments via video link continue to provide a popular contactless service for end users and healthcare professionals seeking safe interaction with our in-house Occupational Therapist, Shaun Masters. Our whole approach will continue to place safety as the number one priority, so that positive outcomes can be achieved as quickly and easily as possible.”
