Theraposture says Covid measures won’t be relaxed for assessors and technicians


Adjustable bed, chair and care cot specialist Theraposture said it will not be relaxing any of its Covid safety measures to ensure continued protection of clients and healthcare professionals.

Theraposture equipment remains vital for individuals with restricted mobility to remain independent, safe and comfortable in their own home.

It supplies trusted medical devices that allow people to be less reliant on carers, avoid relocation to residential care and reduce NHS and social services intervention.

During the pandemic Theraposture products, particularly the Rotoflex turning bed, have proven even more vital in reducing pressures on A&E by lowering falls and the chances of contracting Covid from visiting carers.

Theraposture staff have always worn medical-grade PPE and at the start of the pandemic it introduced additional procedures to protect vulnerable customers, occupational therapists and its staff.

Despite legal requirements being relaxed by the government last week, the company said that its high level of protection will be maintained by trusted assessors and technicians to ensure minimal risk and maximum peace of mind.

All staff will follow stringent hygiene processes and receive temperature checks at the start of each working day.

Lateral flow tests will be completed on a regular basis and all equipment will be thoroughly sanitised before home demonstrations or deliveries.

Protective clothing, hospital grade masks and latex or non-latex gloves will be worn during all visits and social distancing measure will remain.

Liam Braddell, sales director at Theraposture, said: “As ever we are fully focused on the needs of our clients and will not be relaxing any of our Covid safety procedures in the near future. We are recognised as an essential equipment supplier and have the backing of the NHS, BHTA and major charities such as Parkinson’s UK and the MS Society.

“Our products, such as the award-winning Rotoflex, help with independent bed transfers and therefore drastically reduce the risk of spreading Covid from close contact with carers.”

In addition, the company said it will still offer remote assessments via video link for people that want safe interaction with its in-house occupational therapist.
