The Birches School in West Didsbury is a Specialist Support Primary School for children who have severe or profound learning difficulties. Many of the pupils also have physical disabilities which greatly restricts their mobility.

An Acheeva Learning Station is a special bed which allows physically disabled pupils to lie straight and work in a supported, balanced posture giving them relief from sitting in a wheelchair all day.  It is compact and easily moveable, allowing children to be included in class activities. The height and angle can be adjusted so the child is at eye level with staff and other classmates which can help with any visual impairment when studying.

The Birches School has asked MedEquip4Kids to provide an Acheeva Learning Station which is needed to support the clinical requirements of 15 of their 143 pupils. Access to this postural equipment will improve the children’s range of movement and help to prevent potential deformities of the spine and hips. It will enhance the child’s ability to participate in curriculum activities which in turn raises their self esteem and well being.

The cost of providing the Acheeva Learning Station is £7272.20

“During winter months our admissions of children with respiratory conditions increase, so these saturation monitors are vital to us being able to safely monitor children. They will allow us to monitor more children both continuously through their stay with us and at intermittent times during their visit. Staff will find the additional units make their jobs easier.”
