VIDEO: Theraposture continues with COVID safety measures despite Government rules relaxation
Adjustable bed, chair and care cot specialist, Theraposture, has announced that it will not be relaxing any of its COVID-19 safety measures to ensure continued protection of clients and healthcare professionals.
In a statement, Theraposture stated that its electrically powered products will continue to be supplied in the most safe, appropriate and ethical manner.
Theraposture supplies equipment that allows individuals with restricted mobility to be less reliant on carers, avoid relocation to residential care and reduce NHS and social services intervention.
The manufacturer stated that during the pandemic its products, particularly the Rotoflex turning bed, proved vital in reducing pressures on A&E by lowering falls and the chances of contracting Covid from visiting carers.
At the start of the pandemic, the manufacturer says that it took the lead in COVID safety by rapidly introducing procedures, including the use of hospital grade PPE, to protect vulnerable customers, occupational therapists and its staff.
Despite legal requirements being relaxed by the Government, Theraposture confirmed that this high level of protection will be continued by its assessors and technicians to ensure minimal risk and maximum peace of mind.
All staff, it says, 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, Theraposture Sales Director, comments: “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, our remote assessments via video link continue to provide a popular contactless service for end users and healthcare professionals seeking safe interaction with our in-house occupational therapist, Shaun Masters.
“Our whole approach will continue to place safety as the number one priority, so that positive outcomes can be achieved as quickly and easily as possible.”
