Rotational bed specialist Theraposture is to officially launch new designs as part of its expanding Rotoflex range at the Occupational Therapy Show in November.
The powered Rotoflex bed moves a user from a recumbent to fully upright seated position at the side of the bed. It includes a vertical seat lift so users achieve safer sit-to-stand transfers and can enjoy greater independence at home.
The range will comprise two new models and a retro-fit option. The new beds are designed to offer a solution to a wider demographic of people.
The Rotoflex claims to be able to typically save up to £27,500 in annual care costs when two carers are reduced to none. Theraposture says the Rotoflex can eliminate the need for moving and handling assistance so users can access and exit a bed on their own terms.
Users are able to remain at home for longer without the expense and inconvenience of relocation into residential care.
Liam Braddell, Theraposture’s sales director, believes the additional Rotoflex designs represent a “breakthrough in ergonomics and support for end users”.
He comments: “There may now be other rotating beds, but there is only one Rotoflex and we are going to explain why the Rotoflex is notably different, unique in its design and functionality, protected from direct copy and completely trusted for over 20 years.”
Alongside its new innovations Theraposture will be demonstrating the Mascot Mark 2 Care Cot and the current Rotoflex Low Access bed.
