The Haven rise recliner chair is excellent for clients with significant risk of pressure problems or existing pressure ulcers due to the air bag technology within the seat cushion, leg rest and back cushion.
The air cushions work constantly to evenly distribute the user’s weight ensuring that there are no pressure points that might restrict circulation. The high level of pressure relief is due to the air cushions constant movement and repositioning of pressure. This allows for a truly personalised seating experience based on a user’s specific needs with a focus on the person, their activities and the impact of their condition.
It has been designed to provide the highest level of pressure relief for conditions, such as:
- Motor Neurone disease and other neurological conditions
- End of life clients e.g. cancer
- Frail elderly
With a choice of Dual or Single Tilt in Space motors, the Haven is ideal for clients with changing and deteriorating neurological conditions and those who require assisted movement to reduce the problems of skin breakdown. It has a rise option to maintain client independence when they wish to get up and walk as well as choice and control to change position to support rest and purposeful activity.
The Haven comes with a chaise which helps to prevent shear and friction as well as the option of Coolform gel in the arm rests for comfort and additional pressure relief.
The chair can be moved easily from one room to another to reduce the need for manual handling with carers, but also to negate the need to move a client at the end of life where any move can be painful and distressing. Ideal as part of a 24-hour postural care programme it can also be used with either a mobile or overhead hoist to support safe moving and handling techniques for carers.
The chair is ideal for use in health environments including nursing homes or for end of life care clients and residents.
The Haven comes with a range of key features to aid pressure management, postural control and comfort. The key features listed below are standard, you can purchase additional features and these are detailed in the Optional Accessories Section.
Please note that all air bag cushions are pre-set at manufacturer, but they can be altered by a trained care professional using the air valve and pumps. They can all be removed for cleaning or replacement.
For more information on seating posture and assessment please see our downloadable Clinical Posture Guide in the Brochure Section.
The Haven is available with either a Dual Tilt in Space (DTIS) or a Single Tilt in Space (STIS) mechanism. The Tilt in Space (TIS) movement allows the seat to back angle to remain the same whilst the whole seating system is tilted backwards which prevents shearing and friction.
The Dual Tilt in Space mechanism has more positional movement options than the STIS as it also has independent backrest recline and independent leg rest movement. This enables a greater range of positions to aid pressure management, postural control and comfort.
For further details on these mechanisms, with video clips, visit the Mechanism Section.
Pressure Management Back Cushions
The Haven comes with unique split contoured back comprising of two separate and distinct cushions which are detailed below.
Lower Back Air Cushion
This supports the thoracic and lumbar part of the back through a one cell air bag surrounded by a soft foam surface. It provides a high level of pressure relief due to its constant movement and repositioning of pressure.
Top Head Cushion
The top head cushion is Dacron fibre filled and can be adjusted providing additional head support and comfort. The padding levels can be adjusted through the addition or removal of fibres – simply unzip the head cover to gain access to the fibres.
The cushions can be positioned on the back frame using the Velcro. The covers are removable for replacement and cleaning. See Back Cushion Section for more details on the air cushion.
Pressure Management Seat Cushions
The seat cushion contains a single cell air cushion. Users need to have appropriate pelvic stability and core trunk strength to accommodate the air pressure changes and related movement in this single air cushion.
The seat cushion and chaise are combined and the cushions and covers are removable for cleaning and replacement. With this seat cushion we recommend a fabric with four way stretch properties to aid reduction of shear and friction. See Seat Cushion Section for details of the cushion.
Leg Rest Cushion
The single cell airbag provides consistent support across the whole of the thighs, back of the knees and calf and reduces the risk of pressure problems.
The Haven comes with durable castors built in as standard. There is the option to upgrade to either lockable castors or glides.
Handset Pocket on Arm
This comes fitted as standard on the right hand side arm. As an optional extra you can choose to have this positioned differently.
The following features can be purchased to enhance the functionality of the chair.
High Wear Areas
The following covers, in matching fabric, can be purchased to protect high wear areas:
There are five headrests to choose from, all of which come with a Velcro tab allowing them to fit over the top cushions. For further details on each of these options please refer to the Headrests Section.
For further details on the options below please refer to Safety Options Section.
There is an option of Coolform gel in the arm rests for comfort and additional pressure relief.
Castor and Glides upgrade*
There is the option to upgrade to either lockable castors or glides which are suitable for wooden or laminated floors.
Important note – If you choose the lockable castors please note that this will increase the seat height by 1″ (25.4mm).
Carer Loop on back of the chair*
Handset Pocket Positioning*
At the point of ordering you may choose to have the pocket on the left-hand side.
The most important aspect to consider before purchasing any healthcare chair are the seating positions that are required to aid the conditions of the client and address any pressure and postural management needs.
The Haven is available with either a Dual or Single Tilt in Space mechanism. Please check the Sizes Section for all user weights and dimensions before selecting your chair. For demonstrations of the mechanisms described below please watch the relevant videos.
If you would like to find out about what mechanisms are available on other healthcare chairs from the Repose range please see the comparison chart below.
Single Tilt in Space/Dual Tilt in Space
DTIS and STIS (Common features)
The Tilt in Space movement features on both these mechanisms. It allows the seat to back angle to remain the same whilst the whole seating system is tilted backwards. This ensures that the angle of the hips, knees and ankles remain unaffected and the weight on the Ischial Tuberosities is reduced by redistributing the weight through the back. This constant angle also prevents shear and friction during movement.
This feature can also help when transferring someone in a sling as it can support better pelvic positioning by using gravity to position the user in the back of the chair in the optimal position.
Both these mechanisms have a rise position. As the chair rises the seat tilts forward slightly, transferring the weight to the knees whilst taking away the pressure from your hips thus allowing you to walk away more easily from the chair.
Single Tilt in Space
Dual Tilt in Space
As well as the Tilt in Space and Rise functions, described above, the Dual Tilt in Space mechanism also features an independent backrest recline and independent leg rest movement:
- The independent recline allows the user to maintain flexibility over their body’s position, particularly the amount of hip flexion, enabling them to maximise comfort as well as managing health needs.
- The independent leg rest offers the user additional flexibility over positioning, allowing them to either use it in conjunction with the recline feature to create the optimal posture for their body shape.

For those who currently have or who are at a high risk of pressure problems or sores and who have limited ability to change their position and relieve the pressure on their sacrum and buttocks. The Dacron layer transfers heat which can make it very useful for groups who rely on regulated temperature such as MS.
Users need to have appropriate pelvic stability and core trunk strength to accommodate the air pressure changes and related movement in this single air cushion.
There is a choice of 5 detachable headrests all attached with a velcro tab.
If you would like to find out about what headrest cushions are available on other healthcare chairs from the Repose range please see the comparison chart below.
The head roll is useful to reduce depth for anyone with reduced neck extension or needing to keep their head in a neutral position for tasks such as eating or drinking whilst maximising comfort and reducing effort.
Small Head Pillow
The small head pillow provides additional comfort for those who may require a softer surface to rest on whilst stopping hyper-extension at the neck when reclined or tilted.
Small Profile Headrest
Similar to the large profile headrest but support is focused more on the head and neck.
Large Profile Headrest
This headrest provides a combination of lateral support at the head, neck and shoulders whilst offering additional comfort and reducing neck extension.
The midline headrest provides postural support for those with some form of midline deficit, following a stroke resulting in proprioceptive deficit or unilateral neglect for example. It is also useful for those with reduced lateral muscle strength or tolerance (such as sternocleinomastoid).
