OT to showcase future-proofed approach to care cot provision at upcoming Kidz exhibition
Theraposture, a specialist in adjustable cots for disabled children, will be demonstrating its approach to future proofed sleeping solutions with the help of Shaun Masters, Trusted Assessor and Occupational Therapist, at Kidz to Adultz Middle on the 21st of March.
The specialist provides a comprehensive range of power-assisted care cots and beds for children with varying needs. Through an assessment led approach and the in-house expertise of an OT, Theraposture strives to deliver positive outcomes for families, therapists and carers. Its equipment ensures safety, dignity and comfort for clients, whilst variable height minimises the risk of back and muscle strain for carers.
At Kidz to Adultz Middle on stand C4, Theraposture will be demonstrating its proven Mascot Mk2 cot and Theracare adjustable bed. According to the company, the Mascot is the only, fully modular cot that can be adapted as a child’s needs change – hence negating the need to purchase a new product in the future. This represents significant cost savings and ensures a space-appropriate design is provided throughout the lifetime of the child.
In addition, the Mascot incorporates multiple future-proofed features, in particular, it is the only fully modular care bed that will allow conversion from four-door (one side) opening to eight-door (opening both sides). This is essential if care needs progress and access is required to both sides of the cot.
The Mascot is available with variable height, mattress profiling and anti-/Trendelenburg functionality. If safety padding is required, Theraposture can handcraft precision solutions so entrapment risks are eliminated, enhanced by the recent introduction of larger soft windows for greater visibility inside and out.
Shaun Masters, OT, will also be on hand throughout Kidz Middle to discuss how therapists and families can make the considered choice of care cot. He will explain, from his experience, how the correct, future-proofed cot provides multiple benefits for the whole family.
Shaun will be joined by fellow Theraposture Trusted Assessors and a representative from Newlife, a charity for disabled children, who will be available to discuss individual requirements on a one-to-one basis.
Theraposture will also showcase an example adjustable bed from its Theracare range. Ideal for older children and young adults with less challenging or complex needs, this bed provides profiling and variable height along with a range of specialist mattresses and accessories.
The adjustable cot specialist is welcoming all therapists to its stand to collect a free Theraposture tape measure to help with easier client assessment.
Kidz Middle takes place on the 21st of March 2019 from 9.30am – 4.30pm at the Ericsson Exhibition Hall in the Ricoh Arena in Coventry.
