Autism Spectrum Products



The Safespace Siesta is a single bed-sized product. It is uniquely designed for those that have a lot of movement and strength, but are unable or not inclined to climb over the bed sides. Its customisable design accommodates the wide range of nursing needs, including the need to be hoisted into the Siesta. The ‘flex-out’ sides are robust enough to be kicked, punched, head-butted or rocked against, helping to keep the person safe from injury. The Siesta is a low stimulation environment that promotes settling and improves sleep patterns and routine. No need to restrain patient. The Siesta’s versatility makes it suitable for the home or hospital. It can be set up to accommodate a wide range of users with various needs.
