Vital partnership providing aids to disabled children to be showcased at paediatric event
Working with disabled children’s charity Newlife, Theraposture is highlighting a unique partnership to provide specialist cots and beds to children in desperate need at the upcoming Kidz to Adultz show in Bristol.
Newlife’s Emergency Equipment Loan Service works with Theraposture to provide equipment to disabled children who are at serious risk of injury or in urgent need due to shortened life expectancy,
After receiving an application to supply a cot or bed, Newlife commissions Theraposture to deliver the specialist equipment required, usually within 72 hours of receiving the order, with Theraposture committing to also install and maintain the equipment.
Liam Braddell, Sales Director from Theraposture, commented: “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.
Free of charge for families, Newlife’s Emergency Equipment Loan Service provides the beds for periods typically lasting six months, enabling the charity’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.
“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 OTs as commonly this provides like-for-like replacement of loan equipment and hence reduces risk,” continued Liam.
“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. “
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 permanently required.
Taking place on the 5th July from 9.00am and 4.30pm, Kidz to Adultz Wales & West will be held at the Thornby Leisure Centre, Bristol.
Theraposture will be on stand A20, handing out a free information guide outlining the partnership and Newlife’s Emergency Equipment Loan Service to professionals and families.
In addition, Theraposture will be demonstrating popular power-assisted cots and beds from its range, including the Mascot Mk2. According to the company, this fully modular paediatric cot is the only solution that provides complete adaptability to solve changing user needs.
