Organised by Disabled Living, Kidz-to- Adultz-South provides a free and friendly opportunity for parents, therapists and carers to test and compare the latest products and services for disabled children and young adults.
As one of the most popular exhibitors at Kidz, Theraposture will be demonstrating examples from its quality range including a Theracare adjustable bed and the latest version of its future-proof Mascot care cot. The new Mascot with 120cm high-sided doors will be launched at the show as it provides the ideal solution to keep older children and young adults safe and reassured. It is handcrafted with a range of door inserts such as safe soft Perspex and colourful rails that provide a welcoming space that is not visually enclosed – ensuring clear engagement with carers and parents. As with all Mascots, this latest version negates the need to purchase a new cot in the future – it can be adapted to meet changing needs and hence provides the most cost effective solution available.
Alongside product demonstrations by friendly Trusted Assessors, Theraposture will be offering guidance documents about ‘funding routes and your rights to the correct solution for your child’. Supported by their partner charity, Newlife, this information explains possible funding options through statutory services, charities and private purchases. It also highlights the equipment loan scheme from Newlife and key features of the Care Act that stipulate the rights of every child in terms of assessment and equipment provision.
Liam Braddell, Theraposture Sales Director comments:
“As a caring specialist bed and cot manufacturer we believe that supporting disabled children, families and therapists through useful and accurate information is crucial. With the right facts, families and professionals can be empowered to make informed decisions regarding the most appropriate equipment. They also have greater knowledge to assist with grant applications so disabled children can own the right adjustable bed or cot for their needs. We continue to work closely with OTs and parents so positive outcomes are achieved for everyone.”
