New Trusted Assessor appointed to cover South West England and South and Central Wales
Theraposture, a specialist in adjustable beds, chairs and care cots, has announced the appointment of Occupational Therapist Shaun Masters to its team of Trusted Assessors.
Qualified as an OT since 2011, Shaun brings lots of clinical knowledge to Theraposture and its clients. Before joining the Wiltshire-based company, Shaun was responsible for delivering community-based re-enablement in the public sector.
Additionally, Shaun has expertise in moving and handling in both adult and paediatric sectors, so is ideally qualified for a Trusted Assessor role. Based in Winchester, Shaun is now responsible for serving healthcare and consumer clients in South West England, South and Central Wales.
Shaun commented: “I am thoroughly enjoying my new role at Theraposture. As I have been an OT for several years, I have already regularly recommended Theraposture products as they always provide positive outcomes.
“Superior quality, reliability and design all combine to provide better clinical care, comfort and safety so independence and occupational performance is maximised.
“The care cost savings achieved by Theraposture assistive beds, particularly the range of Rotoflex Turning Beds, are significant and represent the most appropriate intervention for safer recumbent-to-standing transfers.”
The Trusted Assessor added that Theraposture has made him feel very welcome in his new role.
“My ethos will be to make a clear difference to individuals seeking greater independent mobility whilst delivering educational material to assist fellow peers,” he continued. “Making a difference to peoples’ lives is why I trained to be an OT and continues to motivate me every day.
“Now part of the highly respected Theraposture team, I can offer clients comprehensive advice from both a product and clinical point of view.”
Outside of work Shaun is an avid downhill mountain biker and, through family experience of disability, he runs to raise funds for charities such as Macmillan and Spinal Research.
Incorporated in 1981, Theraposture has ISO 9001 accreditation and is a member of the British Healthcare Trades Association (BHTA), fully complying with its Trading Standards approved Code of Practice.
The company also works with Age UK, Parkinson’s UK and Newlife, The Charity for Disabled Children.
