Seat Sizes

There are 9 combinations of seat height and width available. This means a comfortable fit can be achieved for a wide range of users, providing optimal function and comfort.

Back Angle Recline (BAR)

Adjusts the angle between the chair seat and back to provide a more comfortable hip position.

Adjustable Seat Depth and Angle

The seat depth can be easily adjusted to ensure the user’s pelvis stays right back in the seat. Together with the choice of seat angle, this ensures correct pelvic alignment and prevents a tilted sacral sitting posture, protecting against pressure-related skin damage.

Maximum Pressure Relief

The seat cushion uses CareFlex WaterCell Technology® and Vapour Permeable (VP) upholstery, which work synergistically to provide continuous pressure relief.

Padded Sliding Footplate

A sliding footplate to provide greater comfort and support to the feet during portering.

4 Fully Braked Twin Wheel Castors

The twin wheel castors spread the chair’s load over a larger surface area, making it easier to push the chair between communal or private areas in the user’s environment. Each castor has a foot operated brake to stop rolling.
