Theraposture to showcase OT-designed, client-focused bed assessments at Kidz Middle
Bed specialist Theraposture will be demonstrating at the upcoming Kidz to Adultz Middle event its clinically-led assessment service and range of client-focused adjustable beds and chairs.
Theraposture’s range of height-adjustable and profiling specialist sleeping solutions offer safety, comfort and longevity for clients. They also ensure safe working heights for caregivers.
Furthermore, its ‘in-house’ Occupational Therapists (OTs) and Trusted Assessors provide a comprehensive and clinically-led assessment service to assist disabled children, families and therapists. This process provides an in-depth appraisal of each client’s needs, wants and risks. Part of this service includes the provision of free documented assessment reports which benefit OTs by providing key facts to assist with justification and clinical reasoning.
Theraposture Trusted Assessors work alongside OTs by providing knowledgeable assistance through their experience and understanding. As equipment experts, Theraposture Trusted Assessors help therapists prescribe the correct and most appropriate solution.
Once a bed or cot is supplied, there is a 14-day Suitability Guarantee period which ensures that product suitability is proven rather than hoped for. Therefore, the OT-designed assessment process from Theraposture is important in delivering a positive outcome for clients.
Shaun Masters, OT and Trusted Assessor, comments: “Kidz Middle will once again provide an opportunity for professionals and parents to discuss individual bed needs with friendly and understanding Theraposture Trusted Assessors.
“Our clinical assessment process will be explained which involves a detailed written analysis of topics such as mobility, behaviour, sleep, posture, pressure care and feeding – which all signpost towards the most appropriate and considered solution.
“The Theraposture Assessors have an unsurpassed level of experience in terms of which cot features assist with which paediatric conditions. Further to this, the range of product available from Theraposture is unrivalled.”
Theraposture will be demonstrating the Mascot Mk2 Care Cot, Home and Away bed and Theracare bed with safety sides at Kidz Middle.
A power-assisted cot bed, the Mascot is the only fully modular bed system that can be reconfigured to meet changing needs. Through its adaptable construction, it has the potential to negate the need to purchase new cots in the future as children grow or conditions develop, making it a cost-effective cot for life.
The recently-launched Home and Away is a strong, heavily padded and portable bed that provides safety and comfort for children with enhanced behavioural challenges. This quality padded solution fully dismantles and can be easily transported in a standard car, making it ideal as an occasional specialist travel bed.
Theraposture can be visited on stand C4 at Kidz to Adultz Middle, which takes place on the 4th of March from 9.30am-4.30pm in the Ericsson Exhibition Hall at the Ricoh Arena, Coventry.
