Charlotte and Chris Bull have a nine-year-old son and four-year-old twins with global developmental delay. Mum Charlotte had just completed her law degree with distinction and was planning to go back to work after having her twins, and Chris was going to be a stay at home Dad. After the boys were born prematurely at 31 weeks – the doctors started to notice problems, initially with Alex and Dylan’s breathing. Charlotte spent the majority of their first two years with one or other of the twins in hospital.
Centrobed first heard about Charlotte and Chris Bull’s story when BBC DIY SOS contacted us in 2015. We immediately offered our support. Centrobed are the leading UK manufacture of bespoke specialist beds and cots in the disability community with over 30 years of experience. Centrobed’s mission is to improve the quality of life for children and their parents.
Following a visit with one of our highly trained Sales Representatives we were able to assess and fully understand that the Quoddy was the perfect bed for Dylan and Alex. The Quoddy is designed in such a way that the bed will grow with the child. This bed supports all the needs and yet is functional and looks attractive. A paediatric bed needs to fit the child and ours certainly does.
The unique feature of the Quoddy bed is that it ‘grows’ with the child expanding to 3 different lengths with the backrest, knee break and fully profiling in the correct places is the primary concern. For the Charlotte to be able to control the positioning of the bed is great as the boys have serial casting on their legs every six months. Being able to take the pressure off their heels by adjusting the beds with a click of a button. The added safety features, particularly the side rails, ensure the boys are always secure in their beds. “The beds give me and my husband better, worry free nights”
The benefits on the Bull family with the Quoddy Beds “have truly made a difference”
