Bed specialist Theraposture and Newlife Charity for disabled children will be showcasing at the Kidz to Adultz Wales and West event their Emergency Bed Loan Services on the 5 July at Thornbury Leisure Centre, Bristol. 

Theraposture works with Newlife to provide specialist cots and beds to children in desperate need through the charity’s ‘Emergency Equipment Loan’ Service. The unique service providing appropriate equipment to disabled children who are at serious risk of injury or in urgent need due to shortened life expectancy. 

Newlife’s Emergency Equipment Loan Service is completely free of charge for families and loan periods typically last six months. This enables Newlife’s care services team to work closely with the family and their health or social care professionals with a view to securing long term provision of a bed. On receipt of an emergency application to supply a specialist cot or bed, Newlife commissions Theraposture to deliver and install the specialist equipment required, usually within 72 hours of receiving the order.   Once the loan period has ended, Theraposture can organise to have the bed or cot collected from the family’s home if it is not required permanently. 

Liam Braddell from Theraposture explains: “We are proud to work with Newlife to provide quality sleeping solutions to disabled children in desperate need. Newlife’s Emergency Equipment Loan Services provide a vital solution in often sensitive and urgent situations. We can assist Healthcare Professionals if they consider a permanent product purchase following the loan period. Purchasing adjustable care cots from us is popular with OT’s as commonly this provides like-for-like replacement of loan equipment and hence reduces risk. The loan product has already been proven and very much liked by the family, the child and the carers – hence appropriate cot provision is assured. Add to this our highly competitive pricing and proven product reliability, real long term value can be gained by all who choose our products, we are the considered choice.”

There will be a free information guide available at Kidz to Adultz Wales and West event on the Theraposture stand, A20, with more information on the equipment loan service. Theraposture will also be demonstrating popular power-assisted cots and beds from its range including the future-proofed Mascot Mk2, the fully modular paediatric cot. Find out more about Theraposture products and services at
