Theraposture is reflecting on a ‘successful’ OT Show after delivering CPD education and showcasing its adjustable beds, chairs and care cots.

Attended by healthcare professionals, Theraposture said its CPD-accredited seminars generated significant interest and engagement.

Shaun Masters, Occupational Therapist and Theraposture Trusted Assessor, provided a series of practical sessions entitled ‘Getting legs into bed.’

The content focused on how the task, which is highly challenging for individuals with restricted mobility and without a solution, can lead to significant safety, health and well-being problems.

The presentations included the proven Theracare leg lifter, a Theraposture double combination adjustable bed and the latest turning bed – the Rotoflex 235 Low.

Throughout the exhibition Masters provided an insight into safer bed transfers for a variety of client needs, conditions and care scenarios.

Content focused on reducing carer intervention and maximising independence for users – hence reducing or eliminating care costs.

OTs were able to see a range of options to ensure clients can remain at home on their own terms through solutions that fully comply with safety legislation.

Masters commented: “It has been a pleasure to present to fellow professionals during the OT Show. I hope my peers found the educational sessions as rewarding as I did – especially in terms of discussing clinical outcomes and the latest thinking regarding bed transfers.”

Adding: “The new Rotoflex 235 Low was a key part of my seminars as its ultra-low capabilities and powered rising heel section offer a new dimension in ergonomic support. The show now provides a platform for us to expand our educational workshops and training programmes so more OTs can enhance everyday practice and reduce strain on care budgets.”
