therapostureTheraposture and its power-adjustable Mascot care cot received positive feedback from families and disabled children visiting Kidz-to-Adultz-Middle (16th March 2017, Ricoh Arena, Coventry).

Theraposture showcased a selection of paediatric products from its quality adjustable bed range including a high sided Hannah cot, Theracare Low adjustable bed and the future proof Mascot cot.

The electrically powered Mascot is the only variable height cot that can be adapted to suit changing needs. As a child grows and develops, the Mascot can be reconfigured with different access options, door heights and design features, negating the need to purchase a new bed in the future according to the company.

It can be specified with Theraposture’s precision-fitted padding and a choice of door inserts, ranging from coloured rails to Perspex, helping provide a safe space that is not enclosed.

Liam Braddell, Theraposture Sales Director, commented: “We were delighted to welcome so many existing and potential customers onto our stand at Kidz Middle this year – it was a lively and positive show as ever. Engaging face-to-face with families gives us the opportunity to hear about the latest challenges they face and how we can hopefully resolve them.”

Liam continues: “Some parents and therapists have been told by their equipment services that providing a care cot can be difficult currently due to an argument regarding ‘deprivation of liberty’. This can lead to frustration for many professionals and families, as often the recommended alternative can be a mattress at floor level within a padded environment. Many of the families and therapists we met at Kidz-to-Adultz felt this alternative was no different to sleeping in a safe and secure adjustable cot bed – apart from the obvious lack of manual handling assistance for parents and carers.”

Liam concludes: “From a practical point of view, the height adjustable Mascot is also essential for parents as it provides safe working heights. It eliminates excessive bending or stooping when attending to children so potential back injury can be avoided. If mattress platform profiling is included in a Mascot a child can sleep with their head elevated which is essential when using a ventilator or being tube fed at night. All-in-all, we know how good our Mascot is, however, to hear such positive feedback from existing clients will enhance the faith OTs and families already place in our beds and cots.”
