Summers Story – Update

Summer is a nine-year-old girl living with Spina Bifida. Summer is paralysed from the chest down and uses a wheelchair full time. Summer has had her Centrobed Quoddy Bed for 3 years.

As with any little girl her age, Summer’s interests and tastes have changed as she has grown over the last three years. Centrobed created new panels for Summer’s bed to transform it from a Disney Princess bed to a Harry Potter theme!!

Another huge advantage with the Quoddy bed is that it grows with the child – starting at 60”, increasing in length to 66” and then 72”. Summer’s bed was also extended to full length.

Both Summer and her parents were delighted with her new bed panels and the transformation achieved:

“This bed has been absolutely amazing for our daughter. It gives her the independence to be able to transfer into and out of bed and to sit herself up without relying on us. It has also given us the ability to tend to her at a comfortable height without hurting our backs.

The design is fantastic, and we all love the interchangeable bed panels as well as the amazing designs the team come up with! The fact the bed is able to grow with our daughter was a major selling point as it gives us that longevity that’s not always seen in the disability equipment market therefore giving extra value for money.


I’d also like to say that, from day one of viewing the beds, the team at Centrobed have been amazing. From sales to fitters and the aftercare team have all been amazing and we are happy to be part of the wonderful Centrobed family.”
