If you’re looking for a therapeutic chair that can do it all, then the CareFlex HydroTilt is a great choice! The CareFlex HydroTilt chair is suitable for a wide range of seating needs and works well in domestic, health and care settings.
What makes the CareFlex HydroTilt so revolutionary?
There are many different types of specialist seating on the market, many of which cater to specific needs. What makes the CareFlex HydroTilt so good is that it can be used for a range of different users, for example, people with Huntington’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, motor neurone disease, dementia, the frail and elderly and those recovering from strokes.
Why is it so good for so many users?
The main benefits of the CareFlex HydroTilt are that it encourages optimum posture and pressure management whilst promoting comfort at the same time. Here’s how it does that:
This specialised function allows you to change the reclining angle of the chair seat and back without adjusting the user’s hip and knee angle. This helps to relieve pressure on different parts of the body without the need to move the user’s limbs. It can be operated manually by a carer or automatically if using the motorised CareFlex HydroTilt specialist chair. Visit our blog to read more about the benefits of Tilt-in-Space chairs.
Maximum Pressure Relief
The seat cushions use CareFlex WaterCell Technology® and Vapour Permeable (VP) upholstery, which work together to provide continuous pressure relief. The specially designed backrest delivers additional pressure relief and long-term comfort by offering support to the lower back whilst the user is sitting upright and in a tilted position.
Fully Adjustable Seating
To maximise the performance of the WaterCell back, the seat depth can be easily adjusted to ensure the user’s pelvis stays right back in the seat, correctly aligned and not tilting into a sacral sitting posture. The CareFlex HydroTilt is also available in 4 different seat widths ranging from 280mm-600mm.
To provide pressure relief for the legs, the legrest is made from Reflexions Foam® and can be elevated through a range of angles. A new feature to the model is that the leg rest now has a 25˚ negative angle to help patients to stand. This also offers a more comfortable seating position for clients with tight hamstrings.
The height and angle of the footplate can be adjusted to accommodate movement in the top of the foot. This also helps to provide a more restful ankle position whilst supporting the foot.
Mini to Maxi
The CareFlex HydroTilt is available in different sizes for users of different ages. The Mini HydroTilt is suitable for small children from the age of three while the Small HydroTilt is suitable for small users of all ages, with a maximum user weight of 75kg. The large CareFlex HydroTilt chair has a maximum user weight of 160kg.
There are a number of extras that can be added to the CareFlex HydroTilt specialist chair to enhance user comfort and security. These range from padded armrests and adjustable lateral supports to harnesses and channelled footbeds. There is also a choice of backrests and head supports as well as several material colourways to suit your setting.
