Unlimited free moves for care cots and beds initiative to support therapists and budget holders
Theraposture, a company that specialises in adjustable bed for children and adults, has announced all newly purchased Cot Beds and Rotoflex Beds will qualify for unlimited, free of charge moves within the warranty period.
Should these specialist beds need to be moved to and from equipment users’ homes and stores, there will be no cost; Therpaosture will do this for free.
Shaun Masters, Occupational Therapist and Equipment Specialist, understands the needs of fellow healthcare professionals so fully supports this new initiative
He explains: “We appreciate budget holders are always focused on minimising costs when it comes to equipment provision. Collecting and delivering care cots is a process that costs time and resources which equipment providers need to cover, especially if stores personnel do not have the specialist knowledge to manage themselves.
“It is therefore justified that manufacturers charge for this however here at Theraposture we acknowledge how challenging budgets are right now and hence have introduced free product moves.”
Equipment providers, budget holders and equipment services now have direct access to specialist Theraposture technicians should a Rotoflex or Cot Bed sold in 2022 ever need to be moved from one location to another or within the same location. This free service from Theraposture is unlimited whilst the product is with its warranty period. Warranties can be extended, and, if so, the offer of free moves also continues for the duration of cover.
Liam Braddell, Sales Director for Theraposture, adds: “Also sometimes buying cheaper alternative products to save cost, do not have comparable warranties and won’t last as long. These cheaper products often do not have the scope to future proof or to deliver such a successful outcome as more expensive better suited products. After the purchase, there are also other costs that cannot be anticipated.
“Collecting and delivering specialist products is a process that is often outsourced to the manufacturer / provider if stores personnel do not have the specialist knowledge needed to manage themselves – which they often do not. Manufacturers charge if asked to do this on behalf of an equipment service.
“However, Theraposture have now introduced unlimited free of charge product moves. This is something that Therapists should consider when applying for funding as it is a real difference that will save a great deal of money.”
Theraposture says it is committed to helping local authorities, equipment services and the NHS make the best use of their budgets to ensure that they can help as many service users and patients as they possibly can.
