PIONEERING ROTOFLEX INNOVATIONS ON STAND D32 – TO BE UNVEILED FOR THE FIRST TIME AT THE OT SHOW – ALL PROFESSIONALS AND PRESS WELCOME.
Solutions for OTs
Since 1981, Theraposture has been the considered choice for OTs seeking quality, reliable and proven rotational bed systems. The powered Rotoflex from Theraposture is the original and trusted turning bed that moves a user from a recumbent to fully upright seated position at the side of the bed. Its unique functionality includes vertical seat lift so users achieve safer sit-to-stand transfers and can enjoy greater independence at home. The Rotoflex range from Theraposture is the widest available which provides OTs and their clients with appropriate product provision every time. This range has just been extended with the introduction of two new Rotoflex models and a ground-breaking retro-fit option.
- Proven to typically save up to £27,500 in annual care costs when two carers are reduced to none.
- Can eliminate the need for moving and handling assistance so users can access and exit a bed on their own terms.
- Lifestyle benefit is of significant value for all users especially those with progressive neurological conditions such as MS and Parkinson’s.
- Owners are able to remain at home for longer without the expense and inconvenience of relocation into residential care.
- Offers a solution to a wider demographic of people who can now benefit from comfort, safety and peace of mind.

Theraposture, the leading specialist for tailor-made adjustable beds, chairs and care cots, will be showcasing its considered approach to parents and disabled children at Kidz to Adultz Scotland.
14 th September: Kidz to Adultz Scotland, Stand D5, Royal Highland Centre, Edinburgh, EH28 8NB, free admission.
We will be demonstrating a selection of products from our proven range including the power-assisted Mascot cot, Theracare Low bed and bespoke Hannah cot with 120cm high sides. Individually handcrafted each product can include height adjustment so carers can operate at safe working heights and platform profiling for greater postural support. Cots are available with a vast range of colourful door designs and precisely fitting safety padding.
Friendly and understanding Theraposture Trusted Assessors will be available at Kidz-to- Adultz Scotland to discuss adjustable bed and cot needs on a one-to- one basis.
The height adjustable Mascot is the only fully future-proofed cot which can be adapted if needs change.
Through a flexible modular design it negates the need to purchase a new cot in the future and is a life-long solution. The Theracare Low is ideal for users who are prone to falling out of bed as the mattress can be positioned just above floor level. For more active and larger users the Hannah offers increased safety with multiple door heights up to 170cm. Each solution provides personalised comfort without feeling enclosed or restricted. The needs and preferences of users is always foremost during the Theraposture assessment process so the well-being of every child is protected. Its 14-day Suitability Guarantee reinforces this commitment.
Our user-centric approach will be reiterated at Kidz Scotland. We believe the needs and wants of young users should come first and in our experience disabled children are happier in a Theraposture assistive cot or bed. Parents and OTs also have greater peace of mind which is why our latest educational content aims to empower families and therapists so statutory cot funding is easier. Our #MySafePlace social media activity, recent paediatric case studies and cot funding guide all provide vital
information. Through evidence-based content parents and children can make a more informed decision.
We welcome all professional and consumer visitors at Kidz Scotland to visit stand D5 for our free advice guides and to enjoy our free chocolates!

Theraposture’s Mascot is a fully modular cot that provides the greatest value on the market as it can be adapted to suit changing needs.
Negating the need to purchase a new cot in the future, the Mascot is the only design available that can offer a safe and comfortable future-proof environment for developing disabled children. Features such as interchangeable 4 or 8-door access, variable height doors and internal divider ensure the cot is always space-appropriate for young users.

Liam Braddell, Theraposture Sales Director comments:
“As committed partners with the Newlife children’s charity, we continue to supply our Mascot to more and more parents who prefer a care cot to an adapted, padded room. Many feel that the quality Mascot is the best solution to keep their disabled child safe and also with mattress profiling, better postural support can be provided. When a child needs to use a ventilator at night or be tube fed, the Mascot provides the essential adjustability to raise the head end of the mattress so comfort and safety is maximized. The height adjustment of the Mascot also allows parents to care for their children at safe working heights and helps avoid excessive bending and potential back injury. Parents need peace of mind that their child is safe when sleeping – our Mascot cot is the proven solution to deliver this reassurance. I would like to invite all therapists and parents on to our stand to discover why our Mascot is the considered choice…and to enjoy our free chocolates!”

Stands 313 and 713 – 12th June, Rivermead Leisure Complex, Reading.
Theraposture is a privately owned, family run business based in Wiltshire that has been the leading supplier of bespoke, hand-built adjustable beds, chairs and cots since 1981.

Liam Braddell, Theraposture Sales Director commented:
“We are delighted to be combining our expertise with the Symmetrikit Postural Care team at Kidz South. We have reviewed the market for some time and have identified Symmetrikit as an ideal specialist for joint initiatives. Their sleep system is excellent and has been a market-leading solution for over 17 years – it is interestingly unique in a very important way. Their sleep system is the only product offering temperature regulation as oppose to the ‘controlling’ technologies offered by other companies. This has contributed to Symmetrikit achieving the highest score in the respected NHS Buyer’s Guide – written by healthcare professionals within the NHS. Our intention is to help jointly promote our product ranges so that we create greater awareness to therapists and families. We plan to work together at exhibitions and on joint CPD projects.”
NEW Safe-T Bed
Theraposture’s Safe-T Bed has integrated, solid sides that fold down when required and is a new alternative to either traditional care cots/beds, with traditional drop down side rails or cot sides. The Safe-T Bed is ideal for children who require higher lateral protection than provided by traditional style beds with drop down side rails, but do not require a higher-sided care cot solution with doors.
NEW Mascot Mark 2 Cot
This remarkable sleeping solution is designed to allow the changing needs of a user and their carers, to be continually met and managed by adapting a modular design. The Mascot Mark 2 offers scope to adapt the electrically operated functions together with the option to alter the quantity, height and construction of doors. Delivering safety, affordability without compromising quality, plus full modular flexibility – the Mascot Mark 2 is a future proof, flexible solution.
Hannah Care Cot
The height adjustable Hannah care cot range provides ample safe space for an active child. It is available with door heights of 70, 98, 135 and 170 cm and can have openings on either one or both longer sides. Similar to the Mascot, the Hannah is suitable for Theraposture’s fixed or removable, personalised padding and soft double glazed windows allow good visibility without compromising safety. It is available with a range of electrically operated function options such as variable height to assist those helping the user at a safe working height; profiling to assist with positioning and Trendelenburg / Anti-Trendelenburg to tilt the sleeping surface.
Theracare Low Bed
The Theracare Low offers all the function of a variable height bed, but with the added advantage of low access. Therapists are increasingly requesting this solution following assessments of users who are at risk of falling out of bed. It importantly allows the sleeping surface to be raised to a safe working height ranging between 23cm and 83cm (without mattress) and therefore this meets the NEW BSEN 60601-2-52 standard. Options include powered profiling of the mattress and three-bar side rails to provide increased effective side rail height. Either mesh-linked padded safety sides or clear, soft transparent safety sides, can be chosen as can padding for the head and foot boards making this a very safe place to be.
