Theraposture

Rotoflex 235 Plus

4The NEW Rotoflex 235 Plus is a 3ft wide rotational solution that suits a wide variety of conditions and mobility requirements. As Theraposture’s new popular standard solution, the Rotoflex 235 Plus provides appropriate assistance for many without the need for complex bespoke adaptations. Following suitability approval by our Trusted Assessors, the new Rotoflex 235 Plus is the ideal and considered choice for individuals who sleep alone and require support when getting in and out bed. 

The Rotoflex 235 Plus will move and rotate a user from a recumbent to fully upright seated position with the touch of one button. Encompassing detailed design and engineering that has been continually refined over 20 years, the Rotoflex 235 Plus represents the safe and considered choice. It includes Theraposture’s vertical lift in the seated position, which is regarded as one of the safest methods to support a sit-to-stand transfer. The Rotoflex 235 Plus is available with a beech finish, the new powered rising heel support as standard and a multitude of specialist mattress choices. 

2As with all Rotoflex beds, this model is based on the original and trusted design developed by Theraposture. No other turning bed system will deliver the same level of performance, comfort and safety to people with neurological conditions – delivering assured independence with peace of mind. It is a leading solution that is proven to save up to £27,000 per annum in care costs when carers are reduced from two-to-none. Shaun Masters, OT and Trusted Assessor comments: “I have worked with a significant number of clients who experience difficulties with bed transfers. I am confident that the Rotoflex is the most appropriate intervention available in meeting their needs and allowing participation in activities of daily living.”

ALSO A WORLD’S FIRST….

NEW: Optional powered rising heel support for Theraposture Rotoflex beds
The original and trusted Rotoflex is the ONLY rotating bed that can be supplied with the patented powered rising heel support to provide fully supported leg elevation. This pioneering technology from Theraposture provides invaluable relief from circulation, pressure and fluid retention issues. This new feature can only be specified on Rotoflex beds from Theraposture – either within new products or retrofitted to existing models. This innovative feature is supplied as standard on the new Rotoflex 235 Plus.

Active Hands

Small Items Aid

dActive Hands are excited to launch the latest in our portfolio of gripping aids: the Small Items Aid.  This versatile and simple solution is ideal for gripping small items such as toothbrushes, pens, art equipment, make up brushes and much more.

The Small Items Aid is a 2-part product.  The first part consists of a neoprene glove.  As with all Active Hands products, the straps on this can be tightened using plastic rings, even with little or no finger strength.  The second part is a palm pad, which contains a plastic clamp.  This clamp is used to hold the item in place and is closed by pulling two loops.  The palm pad then Velcros to the glove and you are ready to go.

;This unique design means that items clamped in the palm pad can be placed into the palm at any angle, making a wide range of activities accessible.  People with reduced hand function are able to hold pens upright, a toothbrush sideways or mascara wands at just the right tilt.  It has been used with great success during art classes where participants were able to paint on an easel or use a drawing board in comfort and confidence.

The clamp mechanism can be easily opened and closed to switch between items.  Alternatively, palm pads can be purchased separately, enabling users to pre-load commonly used items and simply switch between the palm pads without having to remove the glove each time.  In this way, the aids can promote greater autonomy in many activities of daily living.

NRS Healthcare

NRS Bedguard

This Bedguard is a safety device for people who may be at risk of falling out of bed. It forms a safe barrier to prevent rolling out. We’ve listened to the needs of professional and family carers when designing this product, and as a result, we’ve given the Bedguard an extendable and retractable side rail, even when it is in place on the bed. This gives easier access when the client is getting in and out of bed, or access for carers to help with moving and handling. The side rail also detaches from the base easily when it’s in place, to allow bedding changes without having to remove the whole piece of equipment. The base adjusts in width to four set positions so it fits single to king size mattresses, and can be used on divan beds and most slatted frame beds too.

Freestyle Rollator

Safe, comfortable and stylish, the Freestyle Rollator from NRS Healthcare is an ideal walking aid that will bring you greater mobility, freedom and independence. The Freestyle forms part of our new range for people who desire premium design and quality in their daily living aids. We believe it’s the safest, most stylish and easiest to maneovure and fold, 3 wheeled rollator around.

To fold the rollator, simply push the central bar that joins the back frame legs with your knee (or hand) and pull the handles together gently. Pull the handles apart to unfold easily. Unlike most other 3-wheeled rollators, the Freestyle automatically locks into the safest, correct position for walking, without the user having to manually lock it.

It has a spacious and removable storage bag4 to fit lots of everyday items or shopping in, and the bag can be clipped in place for security if required. It has ergonomic handles that are comfortable to hold, and the brakes require just a gentle squeeze to apply. It comes in two stylish, modern colours including silver or champagne.

Duo Walking Trolley

The Duo is a household trolley and walking aid in one, designed in conjunction with Occupational Therapists and Physiotherapists. The Duo can be safely used as an indoor walking aid unlike conventional household trolleys, which are mostly used to transfer things around the home, but are not designed to bear the user’s weight.

The Duo can be used by people who have mobility problems and need walking support, due to its innovative rear slider/brake feet. The Duo has been redesigned for 2018, to ensure longevity and increase the quality of the slider feet. To use the trolley, simply push4 along at your usual pace, and to stop the trolley moving, all that’s required is a gentle press down onto the handles, which activates the slider/brake feet and stops the movement. The use of two slider/brake feet and two wheels, ensures the Duo glides well on most household surfaces, but is easier to control and will not ‘run away’ from the user or go to fast for them. It’s a really safe, stylish indoor trolley and mobility aid option. It comes in pebble grey or turquoise blue. The Duo safely transfer meals and household items, and is also useful as a meal table.

The return of Ways & Means from NRS Healthcare

NRS Healthcare are launching their brand new Ways and Means catalogue at The OT Show! Designed for customers wishing to buy their own equipment, the catalogue features 300 of NRS’s best-selling daily living aids. The catalogues are ideal for prescribers such as Occupational Therapists, to carry around with them to give out to their clients who need to self-fund.

Commercial Director at NRS Healthcare, Steve Kennedy, said:

“In the past few years, we’ve really focussed on building our online presence, improving our retail website to ensure people who want to buy online can do so easily and quickly. However, we’re aware that lots of our clients still prefer to use a mail order catalogue over buying online, so we’ve produced a new A5 booklet under our Ways and Means brand for them! Naturally, we can only include a selection of the vast range of 3000 daily living aids that we offer online, but our team of Occupational Therapist product advisors have carefully selected the most popular products, to suit a variety of needs and provide a number of mobility and living solutions. Our customer research suggested that busy pages were more confusing for our audience, so we’ve redesigned the catalogue to feature fewer products whilst still offering enough choice to suit lots of people’s varied needs. We’re also featuring lots of helpful health and wellbeing tips, as well as advice on how to choose certain daily living aids. Customers can order via telephone, postal order form or online at www.nrshealthcare.co.uk.”

Ways and Means catalogues are available to pre-order by telephoning NRS Customer Services on 0345 121 8111 or emailing customerservice@nrshealthcare.co.uk

Karma Mobility  

VIP2

The VIP2 is the latest addition to the Karma Mobility portfolio of manual wheelchairs and offers users a superb combination of tilt in space and reclining positions to ensure they can achieve optimum levels of pressure relief, positioning and comfort at all times

The VIP2 still has 35 degree tilt and now comes with either a backrest with fixed recline positions or and adjustable reclining back of 30 degrees. The recline angle of the fixed backrest is adjustable from -5 degrees to 15 degrees.

imThe VIP2 comes with an adjustable headrest with a greater range of options in terms of position. Other enhancements include a deeper seat for taller users and a tension adjustable backrest which were very popular options on the VIP-515.

Karma Mobility believes in listening to its retailers and customers, and one concern many users of reclining wheelchairs have is the risk of sliding.  This has been addressed by locating the pivot point of the chair close to the user’s hip joint which synchronises with the motion of the body and the chair therefore greatly reducing the sensation of sliding when reclining.im

The feeling of anxiousness some users have when going to the tilt position has also been taken into account with the design of a unique weight shifting system.  The system allows the centre of gravity to travel between the front and rear wheels while tilting which provides steadier balance and greater feeling of security.

The foldable design of the VIP2 also ensures it can be easily transported in the boot of most standard family sized cars.

For more information on the full range of manual and powered wheelchairs or to find  your nearest Karma Mobility retailer visit: www.karmamobility.co.uk/where-to-buy or call 0845 630 3436.
