Healthy posture when seated is so important. Unfortunately, it can be hard to achieve this using a regular chair, especially for people facing the challenges of age, disability or a neurological, cardiovascular or orthopaedic condition. Without the postural management offered by specialist seating, quality of life for these individuals can easily deteriorate, with bad posture placing stress on muscles and joints, and generating pressure across the body. Not all specialist chairs are created equal – but when you choose the CareFlex HydroTilt, you can be sure of full-body postural management.
Flexible postural management, tailored to the individual
The HydroTilt takes an individual approach to postural management. Five chair sizes are available – from Mini to XL – and each comes with stylish, environmentally friendly and removable covers to complement your home. That ‘tailor-made’ approach is echoed in the chair’s operation. For sitting upright at sociable times, the adjustable-depth seat keeps the user’s pelvis perfectly aligned, cushioned by pressure-relief Watercell technology and positioned correctly against the chair back (with no risk of tilting). When it’s time to relax, the Tilt-In-Space (TIS) mechanism’s smooth reclining motion keeps hips and knees at the optimum angle, alongside the independently elevating leg rest and a chair back that maintains lower back support at every angle.
Easy-to-use handset for electric postural management
The physical challenges of advancing age or a medical condition can make it difficult to operate some specialist chairs, which need to be adjusted manually using hard-to-reach levers. That’s not a problem with the fully motorised HydroTilt. Using a 24V DC battery-powered system, this advanced chair includes a compact four-button handset, giving users precise and effortless control over the Tilt-In-Space mechanism and leg rest elevation. It’s a winning feature that means users have the ability to take charge of their own postural management and retain an invaluable sense of independence.
Add specialist equipment to suit individual users
No two users are alike, so the HydroTilt comes with a range of optional extras. For example, while the chair ships as standard with the stock elevating leg rest, made from comfortable, pressure-relieving Reflexion foam –why not tailor your HydroTilt with the new split leg rest, to combat the discomfort of contracted leg muscles and tight hamstrings? Just let our expert team know your requirements and we’ll find you the package to suit.
