Firwood School in Bolton is a specialist school for secondary aged students who have severe or profound learning difficulties. Many students also have physical disabilities which severely restrict 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. It is compact and easily moveable, so children can be included in class activities. Its height and angle can be adjusted so the child can see what is being shown to other pupils, and also be at eye level with staff and their classmates in wheelchairs.

Firwood School has requested an additional Acheeva Learning Station to support the clinical needs of the new pupils starting in September. Access to this postural equipment will improve their range of movement and help to prevent potential deformities of the spine and hips. It will enhance the student’s ability to participate in curriculum activities which in turn raises their self esteem and well being.

“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.”
