Part of the extensive cot range from Theraposture, the Mascot is more than just a cot bed. It is a hand built, individually specified sleeping solution that delivers safety, great looks and affordability without compromising quality. Also for the first time in the UK, full modular flexibility is provided by the Mascot which allows the specification to change when needs or users change without the need for a new cot.
The Mascot from Theraposture provides:
The high quality padding from Theraposture that can be fitted to a Mascot is unique and provides the highest levels of safety and comfort. The hand crafted padding is bespoke to each cot and made according to the recommendations highlighted in Theraposture’s assessment of user needs. The team of craftsmen ensure there is a snug fit with no gaps which could cause potential risk and soft-touch Panvelle is commonly used which is non-permeable, anti-bacterial, anti-microbial and anti-fungal. Integrated transparent windows that consist of soft, flexible material allows two-way visual access and is double-glazed with air pocket cushioning. A variety of fixing options are available along with an extensive range of colours, patterns and child friendly prints that allows the Mascot to be personalised.
All mattresses that are used in the Mascot from Theraposture are supplied with waterproof covers. Each mattress is cut to the exact internal dimensions of the cot bed to ensure that there are no gaps and options include standard foam fillings through to high-level pressure management systems.

As the market leading expert and supplier of adjustable care cots, Theraposture Ltd have concluded that there is a need for a cot bed that offers enough flexibility to change when needs change. Frequently care cots can be over specified to cater for possible future needs that are not always known. This adds to the cost and in many cases this extra specification is never needed.
The solution is a modular design that is interchangeable and adaptable so that the cot bed can be easily modified in a cost effective way. The Mascot Mk2 is made using the finest proven materials and components available. Each cot can be individually specified without having to pay for 'a special' – every Mascot Mk2 is 'a special' but at an affordable price thanks to its modular construction.

With the new internal divider system, the Mascot Mk2 provides a more size-appropriate space for very young children. It also creates a storage area until such time that the divider system can be removed, when more space is needed as a child grows. Just one product could potentially be used throughout all stages of a child's development, hence a 'whole life solution.'

Because of the modular design, these functions are completely interchangeable. On all Mk2 Mascots the variable height range is 60cm which means that the BSEN 60601-2-52 safe working height requirements are met. The starting height is just 23cm making this one of the lowest cot beds available, rising to 83cm with the entire cot bed rising to ensure that the full cot side height is maintained even in the highest position.
1. Our SOFT clear windows are vitally important to allow visual access to and from the cot. Because they are soft, they become part of the padding and therefore the padding itself is not compromised in any way. Our windows are double 'glazed' with a pocket of air providing the cushioning and the clear material is soft and perfectly transparent.
Windows make a massive difference to a cot that requires padding as without them, the cot may appear enclosed. Equally, anything less than soft windows will present a potential for injury, or can restrict visual access.
2. When we pad a cot bed, we cut the mattress to ensure a snug fit with no gaps. This is an important safety consideration as gaps should be avoided completely if practically possible. The material that we use is mostly Panvelle or vinyl which is soft to the touch yet non-permeable, anti-bacterial, anti-microbial and anti-fungal. It can either be attached with Velcro or bolts for extra security and reinforced/anti-tear fabrics are also available.
There is a massive choice of colours, patterns and child friendly prints allowing the Mascot Mk2 to be personalised.
Because the Mascot Mk2 is modular, padding can be fitted retrospectively in the home avoiding added cost and inconvenience.
3. The Mascot Mk2 can be padded however you so desire. The height of the padding doesn't have to be full height or on all internal surfaces. If the padding is full height, we can also pad up and over the top edge (except where the sliding locking is), as often this area of the cot may cause an injury if a loss of balance occurs. Our assessment process identifies the needs, wants and risks of each situation. The recommendation that we make takes all of these considerations into account.
All mattresses that are used in the Mascot Mk2 are supplied with waterproof covers. Each mattress is cut to the exact internal dimensions of the cot bed to ensure that there are no gaps.
