Healthcare panel picks out equipment to ‘revolutionise care environment’


A panel of experienced healthcare professionals has selected a special rotating bed to be awarded with the first Excellence in Caring Award at the OT Show 2018.

The Rotoflex 235 Plus was deemed best product on show following a comprehensive review.

Launched at the NEC, the bed, manufactured by Theraposture, was regarded as a solution ‘that will revolutionise the care environment for both service-users and carers alike’ and ‘enable clients to take an active role in their care.’

Shortlisted alongside many other innovations from other exhibitors, the Rotoflex 235 Plus excelled in all criteria – strengthened by a compelling end-user testimonial which reaffirmed the care, financial and lifestyle benefits the assistive product is designed with.

Liam Braddell, Theraposture’s sales director, said: “We are delighted to have won this prestigious award as it officially recognises our Rotoflex as the considered choice.

“No other rotating bed system can deliver the same level of user support – resulting from a concept continually refined over a period of 20 years. It is a quality, considerately designed specialist bed, backed-up by ethical and caring assessment-led service.

“By working so closely with OTs since 1981, we are able to understand more deeply the challenges that clients face ­– hence enhancing and widening the bespoke Rotoflex range to meet individual needs more precisely.”

The Rotoflex range facilitates safe and stable transfers in and out of bed through advanced engineering.

Clients commonly with neurological conditions, such as MS and Parkinson’s, benefit from its ability to move and rotate from a recumbent to a fully upright seated position.

With its vertical lift in the seated position, controlled standing and seating is possible for those with balance and strength inconsistencies – all without the need for carer assistance.

When a carer is reduced from two-to-none, the Rotoflex claims to save up to £27,000 per year in carer costs and eliminate the need for relocation into a care home.
