Healthcare professionals at the OT Show invited to see Theraposture’s latest turning bed and adjustable bed innovations
At the 2019 Occupational Therapy Show, Theraposture, supported by Occupational Therapist Shaun Masters, will be presenting the new Rotoflex 235 Plus Mk2 turning bed alongside the popular Theracare Leg Lifter and a bespoke double combination adjustable bed.
Theraposture is a supplier of adjustable beds, chairs and care cots, and last year, its Rotoflex 235 Plus turning bed won the coveted OT Show ‘Excellence in Caring’ Award.
Theraposture Trusted Assessors work closely with OTs during their clinically-led assessments so that individual client needs are always met in terms of appropriate sleeping solutions.
At the 2019 OT Show, Theraposture will be demonstrating a series of products that are suitable for varying client abilities with a focus on enablement within the community. These power-assisted solutions are proven to reduce care costs and relieve strain on NHS and social care budgets.
Through ownership of either a Theraposture Rotoflex bed, leg lifter or adjustable bed, individuals with restricted mobility are able to improve their own occupational performance and sleep hygiene.
Shaun Masters, OT and Theraposture Trusted Assessor, commented: “We welcome all healthcare professionals to visit stand J40 to discuss individual client needs on a one-to-one basis and to discover why Theraposture products are the considered choice.
“We will demonstrate power-assisted solutions that offer a range of support for adults – from assistance with getting legs into bed through to complete rotational support from a sitting to supine position. This product series delivers multiple clinical and well-being benefits and with appropriate prescription, aims to encourage active mobility whilst maintaining safety and control.
“The 14-day Suitability Guarantee on all Theraposture products ensures a positive outcome every time along with client peace of mind.”
Shaun also emphasised that Theraposture products can ease pressure off the NHS and reduce social care budgets.
He explained: “The Rotoflex rotational bed range for example, is proven to reduce carer intervention from two-to-none – in these scenarios up to £27,000 per annum can be saved in care costs.”
On stand J40, the following solutions will be displayed:
Award-winning Theraposture Rotoflex 235 Plus Mk2 – part of the largest range of rotational beds available, the latest Rotoflex 235 Plus builds on the success of its predecessor. This bed for one person provides a feature-rich, standard solution that is suitable for the majority of individuals who need powered, rotational assistance to move from a supine to fully upright seated position with their feet on the floor.
This Rotoflex is the only rotational bed in the world with a powered rising heel section for supported leg elevation. Traditionally, all rotating beds have had to encompass a static heel section of mattress so that the rotating platform would not clash with the footboard. However, with the use of one controller, the Rotoflex 235 Plus Mk2 provides powered elevation of a separate heel section with complete profiling, rotational and variable height. Being able to raise feet and legs in bed in a supportive and controlled manner can provide a wider range of health and well-being benefits, says Theraposture.
The Rotoflex is the original turning bed refined over 20 years which is patented and cannot be directly copied. The bespoke Theraposture range includes low access, bariatric and double combination versions available with a variety of specialist mattresses.
According to Theraposture, the Rotoflex is regularly prescribed by therapists as it includes vertical lift in the seated position. This is critical for safe sit-to-stand transfer especially for those with strength and balance inconsistencies resulting from neurological conditions.
Theraposture Double Combination Bed – bespoke and durable adjustable beds, which come in a wide range of style, size, functions and finishes for couples to share, despite varying abilities. Consisting of two separate mattresses and adjustable sleeping platforms in one surround, each side can be fitted with electrically powered profiling and variable height. A Rotoflex turning system can also be integrated within the design so individuals requiring greater assistance can access the bed and adjust positioning without disturbing their partner.
Combined with a specialist range of mattresses for varying degrees of pressure management through to numerous safety devices, Theraposture beds offer hospital-grade strength and support within an attractive domestic look.
Theracare Leg Lifter – compatible with most types of bed, this reliable solution lifts legs up, over and onto a sleeping surface. The Lifter positions a user’s legs nearer the centre of the bed so minimal repositioning is required. The motor is quiet and strong enough to lift severely oedemic (swollen) legs. Theraposture outlines that the Lifter is an effective solution for individuals with postural control.
Theraposture can be visited on stand J40 at the OT Show, which takes place at the NEC in Birmingham on the 27th-28th November 2019.
