Theraposture’s in-house occupational therapist will be offering advice regarding care cots for disabled children and young adults at Kidz to Adultz Wales and West at the beginning of next month.
Shaun Masters will be available at the Theraposture stand, where he will be showcasing the firm’s range of adjustable cots and beds as well as discussing individual client cases on a one-to-one basis.
The exhibition, organised by Disabled Living charity is a chance to see a range of new assistive products, services and associated charities.
And Theraposture has invited healthcare professionals, carers and families to visit its stand in order to achieve a better understanding of care cots.
Masters said: “I would encourage all OTs and parents looking for safe adjustable sleeping solutions to meet me at Kidz West. With the support of quality Theraposture cots, such as the popular Mascot Mk2, I will be practically demonstrating the many product features to assess when prescribing a suitable bed.”
He added: “Design will be explored in relation to specific paediatric conditions so occupational performance and sleep hygiene can be optimised. Topics such as functionality, padding and safety legislative will all be discussed along with the major consideration ¬– future proofing.
“By specifying truly modular designs, the changing needs of a user can be continually met without the need to purchase new cots in the future. This cost effective approach is of significant importance both for public sector and personal budgets.”
