Theraposture, the respected specialist in adjustable beds and care cots since 1981, will be showcasing its association with Newlife the Charity for Disabled Children at Kidz to Adultz Wales & West.
Thursday 5th July 2018, 9.00am – 4.30pm, Thornbury Leisure Centre, Bristol, South Gloucestershire, BS35 3JG. Stand A20. Free entry and parking.
Theraposture works with Newlife to provide specialist cots and beds to children in desperate need through the charity’s ‘Emergency Equipment Loan’ Service. This service is unique in the UK and provides appropriate equipment to disabled children who are at serious risk of injury or in urgent need due to shortened life expectancy.
On receipt of an emergency application to supply a specialist cot or bed, Newlife commissions Theraposture to deliver the specialist equipment required, usually within 72 hours of receiving the order. Theraposture also installs and maintains the beds once in situ.
Newlife’s Emergency Equipment Loan Service is completely free of charge for families and loan periods typically last six months. This enables Newlife’s care services team to work closely with the family and their health or social care professionals with a view to securing long term provision of a bed. Once the loan period has ended, Theraposture can organise to have the bed or cot collected from the family’s home if it is not required permanently.
Liam Braddell from Theraposture explains: “We are proud to work with Newlife to provide quality sleeping solutions to disabled children in desperate need. Newlife’s Emergency Equipment Loan Services provide a vital solution in often sensitive and urgent situations. We can assist Healthcare Professionals if they consider a permanent product purchase following the loan period. Purchasing adjustable care cots from us is popular with OT’s as commonly this provides like-for-like replacement of loan equipment and hence reduces risk. The loan product has already been proven and very much liked by the family, the child and the carers – hence appropriate cot provision is assured. Add to this our highly competitive pricing and proven product reliability, real long term value can be gained by all who choose our products, we are the considered choice.”
There will be a free information guide available on the Theraposture stand which outlines Newlife’s Emergency Equipment Loan Service.
Also on stand A20, Theraposture will be demonstrating popular power-assisted cots and beds from its range including the future-proofed Mascot Mk2. This fully modular paediatric cot is the only solution that provides complete adaptability to solve changing user needs – negating the purchasing of new cots in the future. The Mascot can encompass variable height, mattress profiling and anti-Trendelenberg / Trendelenburg positioning which provides a multitude of care benefits for children and reduces the risk of back injury for carers. These beds, like the entire cot range from Theraposture meet all relevant safety standards and come with a fully inclusive 3-year warranty. The Mascot is held in stock at Theraposture’s Wiltshire factory for fast delivery.
