Thursday 7th July 2016, House of Sport, Cardiff, CF11 8AZ. 9.30am – 4.30pm. Stand D3.

Theraposture has been a long-standing supporter of the Kidz events organised by the Disabled Living charity. Kidz to Adultz Wales is an additional exhibition in the Kidz series that provides a free opportunity for healthcare professionals, parents and carers to see the latest products and services for disabled children. Theraposture will be demonstrating a selection of its quality and trusted power-adjustable cots and beds and highlighting its new lower pricing policy. Its lower product prices, combined with assessment- led support services delivered by Trusted Assessors, will help achieve positive outcomes for more disabled children and their families. Theraposture will continue to offer its 14-day free trial and close working relationship with Occupational Therapists so peace of mind is assured.

Liam Braddell, Theraposture Sales Director, will be available on stand D3 to discuss individual requirements and comments:

“Theraposture are renowned for providing outstanding quality top end products. Our care cots are often chosen as the best because of their quality, design and longevity.  Our prices are now considerably cheaper making it possible to buy the best for much less than perhaps you thought. Plus challenge us before the end of September to beat any comparable child’s bed or cot bed quotation.”

In terms of Theraposture products being showcased at Kidz to Adultz Wales, stand D3 will include the variable height and profiling new 120cm high Mascot Mark 2 cot, Hannah cot with 135cm high sides and Theracare bed.

The Mascot continues to be a popular choice for OTs and parents as it offers a truly ‘future proof’ solution. This highly cost effective cot can be adapted as needs change so that additional cots do not need to be purchased in the future. Combined with the availability of excellent value cot, mattress and padding packages, attending Kidz to Adultz Wales is essential for all professionals and end users looking to purchase a higher value, lower cost paediatric assistive cot or bed.

‘Kidz-Scotland’ helps Theraposture deliver positive outcomes for all

We are pleased to report our stand at the recent Kidz Scotland exhibition, received a healthy number of visitors including many healthcare professionals and families with disabled children.

Our Trusted Assessors received several requests for home assessments and spent time discussing in detail our safe sleeping solutions with the Theraposture high-sided Hannah cot attracting particular attention.

Theraposture’s Trusted Assesor, Jean-Luc Durand with guests at our Kidz Scotland stand.

Kidz Scotland provided the ideal opportunity for us to engage with carers and families so that the right assistive cot and bed solutions could be recommended for children with disabilities. Our Mascot delivered a show highlight through its unique ability to be fully modular ie. it can be easily adapted to meet the changing needs of a child. This flexible and adaptable design is a world’s first and provides the most cost effective choice available today. Through its ingenious design, cot configuration can be simply modified to accommodate a growing or developing child – hence eliminating the need to purchase a new cot. A true ‘future-proof’ solution.

During the exhibition, we were delighted to welcome existing customers onto our stand including the Bermingham family. Young Connor Bermingham is a proud owner of a Mascot cot and fully enjoys the comfort and safety it provides when playing and sleeping. Owning this quality, power-adjustable cot was deemed suitable following a comprehensive assessment by one of our Trusted Assessors, Jean Luc Durand. Its provision was also supported by a donation from the Newlife Foundation for Disabled Children – our chosen charity partner that together helps us provide life-changing beds and cots to families in need.

We look forward to welcoming large numbers of visitors onto our stand once more at the next Kidz event – ‘Kidz-to-Adultz up North’. This recently expanded event will provide assistive products and services for a wider range of ages – from young children to disabled adults in their 20’s. We will be on stand B10: Kidz-to-Adultz up North, Thursday 19th November 2015, EventCity, Barton Dock Road, Manchester, M17 8AS. 9.30am – 4.30pm

Kidz South busier than ever for Theraposture

We are delighted to report Kidz South has once again delivered a positive experience for us.

Our exhibition team was busy throughout the whole event discussing assistive bed and care cot needs on a one-to-one basis.

Our stand was visited by high numbers of families with disabled children, healthcare professionals and carers all looking to understand more about our market-leading solutions.

On stand 313 at the Rivermead Leisure Complex, Reading, we demonstrated our popular Mascot Mk 2 cot, a high-sided Hannah cot and a Theracare low bed. The Mascot generated significant interest as it provides the world’s first, fully modular care cot. This means its design can be adapted to meet the developing needs of a growing child. In terms of paediatric care cots, this flexible and ‘future-proof’ concept provides the most cost effective solution available today.

The Kidz events organised by Disabled Living always provide visitors with an invaluable opportunity to discuss their individual requirements with our Trusted Assessors. We look forward to showcasing our quality power-adjustable cots and beds at the recently expanded ‘Kidz-to-Adultz-up-North’, 19thNovember, Manchester. Kidz-to-Adultz will incorporate new features that are not only relevant to children, but to adults up to the age of 25. Our products will ideally suit this increase in show diversity as we handcraft bespoke assistive beds, cots and chairs suitable for any age or condition.

Theraposture partnerships with Newlife charity and Symmetrikit prove successful at OT Show

Working closely with Occupational Therapists (OTs) since 1981, Theraposture continues to be a respected supplier of bespoke, hand-built adjustable beds, chairs and cots.

Its products enhance comfort, safety and well being for individuals living with mobility difficulties and greatly assist those offering care. Theraposture personalised assessments are highly regarded by OTs as they ensure their clients always receive the ideal solution to meet individual needs. This is furthered by Theraposture’s 14-day Suitability Guarantee and fully inclusive warranties that provide peace of mind. These services were explained to large numbers of healthcare professionals at the show, along with the chance to win an iPad Mini and see the original patented Rotoflex bed and the modular Mascot Mark 2 cot.

The Rotoflex is a trusted, proven and effective solution that allows users to manage bed transfers on their own terms. Its powered functionality assists individuals with getting into and out bed and achieving a seated position ready for a standing transfer. This results in significant cost savings as help from carers is not required and lifestyle benefits are enhanced through user independence.

The example on display consisted of a Rotoflex double combination bed with contemporary oak surround – demonstrating how Theraposture power-adjustable beds can blend into any domestic setting. Alongside the Rotoflex, the latest Mascot Mark 2 cot was also showcased which provides a ‘future-proof, whole life solution’ through adaptable design. It meets the changing requirements of a disabled child and eliminates the need to purchase and specify new cots in the future – the most cost effective concept ever.

Sharing Theraposture’s stand, Heather Campbell, Awareness Manager for Newlife Foundation for Disabled Children was able to raise awareness of the charity and demonstrate its connections to this proven assistive furniture specialist. Theraposture is an established supplier to Newlife as it provides essential, supportive equipment to children with disabilities and life-limiting conditions. This proven relationship delivers positive outcomes for disabled children and their families.

In addition to its joint showcase with Newlife, Theraposture also worked alongside Symmetrikit Postural Care to demonstrate complete sleeping solutions. On stand C30, a Theracare bed from Theraposture was displayed with a Symmetrikit Sleep System that together, provide high levels of safety, accessibility and assistance with correct postural positioning. Maintaining the correct posture whilst asleep is so important for individuals with specific conditions, especially in relation to children who are continually developing and growing. The Theracare bed provides the powered function of a variable height bed, but with the added advantage of low access.

Liam Braddell, Theraposture Sales Director said:

“I am delighted to say our partnerships with Newlife and Symmetrikit at the OT Show have proven successful. We are proud to support the positive outcomes that Newlife deliver for so many families across the UK and believe Symmetrikit solutions lead the market in terms of postural care. Both our original Rotoflex bed and pioneering Mascot cot received considerable interest from OTs during both days. OTs were able to understand first-hand why our products have been trusted by healthcare professionals and their clients since 1981.”

Theraposture and Symmetrikit Postural Care successfully combine sleeping solution showcase at Kidz South

Theraposture, the leader in care cots and adjustable beds, and postural specialist Symmetrikit, both received high levels of visitor interest in their combined product showcase at Kidz South, Reading, 12th June 2014.

A 135cm high padded Hannah cot was also be available on stand 313.

Liam Braddell, Theraposture Sales Director commented:

“I am delighted to say that our new exhibition relationship with Symmetrikit has proven to be a success at Kidz South. For the first time we have combined our products on each stand to demonstrate complete sleeping solutions that deliver maximum safety and support to disabled children. We exhibited our new Safe-T bed on the Theraposture stand that incorporated a Symmetrikit sleep system – a market-leading solution for improved posture and support. Their sleep system has achieved the highest score in the respected NHS Buyer’s Guide, hence is a trusted product for all therapists and parents with disabled children.”

Liam added:

“Both our pioneering, fully modular Mk2 Mascot paediatric cot and new Safe-T Bed received significant interest from healthcare professionals and families at Kidz South. The Mascot provides a ‘whole life solution’ as it can be adapted if user needs change avoiding the need to purchase a new cot in the future. Whereas the Safe-T Bed is the ideal niche product for children who do not require either a high- sided cot or adapted adult care bed with side rails, but a safe solution in the middle.”

Dominic Bowen, Symmetrikit Sales Director concluded:

“I would like to reiterate Liam’s words in that Kidz South has been a very positive experience in terms of our joint promotion. We were also busy for the duration of the day engaging face-to-face with many Healthcare Professionals and inquisitive families. Our postural sleep system is the perfect partner for Theraposture care beds, which was highlighted on our stand with the Theracare Low. The ability to demonstrate a complete solution to visitors was a major advantage at this event and we look forward to working with Theraposture again.”

Liam concluded:

“Engaging face-to-face with healthcare professionals is always so important for us so we can listen, understand and resolve many of the current challenges faced by OTs in relation to assisted care cots and beds. During the two days, we also reiterated the importance of our seven-day suitability guarantee and comprehensive assessment process to all OTs.”
