A few examples of some of the many letters of appreciation that we receive:
Pam Lane, Bedfordshire
“Theraposture were extremely helpful on the phone, especially when listening to our needs.
I believe we received an excellent level of service as Theraposture is a family-run business – these types of organisations tend to look after their customers in a more caring way.”
Carol and Barry Parker from Chesterfield, Derbyshire
As Carol Parker’s MS now causes considerable challenges at bedtime, the Parkers have purchased a Theraposture Double Combination Rotoflex Bed to provide assistance and support. Barry, her husband, explains:
“Prior to getting our Theraposture Rotoflex bed, Carol used to have a lot of pillows around her just to get comfy and then she’d be stuck in the same position. Her legs were badly swollen because the fluid wasn’t draining away and as her MS has progressively got worse, the only way Carol could get into bed or move in the night was with my help. We looked on the internet and found the Theraposture Rotoflex bed; we’d not come across anything like it, especially as it isn’t clinical and we wanted our home to still feel like a home.”
They chose a Theraposture Double Combination bed with two independent mattresses surrounded by faux leather. The variable height, profiling and rotating mechanism on Carol’s side of the bed moves her from a lying to an upright seated position. Once seated with her feet comfortably positioned on the floor Carol can also raise the Rotoflex so standing up or sitting down is safer and requires less effort.
“It’s the rotating action that swings her round into bed with the touch of a button that’s the key for us. This makes a real difference because it lifts up her legs without my help and carefully rotates her into place allowing her to move into bed independently. Plus, the profiling system lets Carol re-position herself at any time, meaning I can get some rest too. It’s so easy for her to use and she can also adjust the height if she requires it.”
It’s not just the Parkers who have seen the difference it has made. Barry adds:
“After only a week we noticed the oedema in Carol’s legs was less significant and her Physiotherapist has remarked on these changes as well.”
