The numerous benefits of a Tilt in Space (TiS) chair make them the perfect solution for many elderly chair and disabled chair users. The same is true when it comes to mobility solutions, with a TiS wheelchair. The good news is that those benefits are more accessible than you might expect, thanks to the TiS chair hire options available to you.
In this article, we outline those TiS chair hire options for you and the advantages they offer.
Advantages of TiS technology
In terms of pressure-relief, a TiS chair often has this built into the seat and other skin contact areas. The TiS enables the user to maintain the same deep angle between seat and backrest – alleviating pressure on the user and increasing their comfort. It also makes the work of the caregiver far easier, with far less effort required in lifting and positioning. At the same time, because the seat and backrest can be moved forward at the same angle, getting out of the seat puts significantly less stress on the user, when using a Tilt in Space chair properly.
The same is true of a TiS wheelchair. In most cases, the wheelchair allows the lower part of the body (hips, ankles and knees specifically) to stay in one position, while the angle of the limbs and torso can be changed whenever necessary. This avoids the uncomfortable problem of staying in one position for long periods of time. It also means wheelchair users can interact comfortably with external technology that they rely on, such as computers or steering aids.
TiS chair hire
Providers of specialist chair and mobility solutions often give you the opportunity to put TiS to work for you, without any capital outlay. It is perfect for short-term rental agreements for palliative care or patient discharge following operations. On the other hand, you might opt for TiS chair rental when longer-term, ongoing care is required and you want to ensure maximum user comfort and minimum user stress at all times.
Financially, the major advantage of TiS chair hire is the fact that you’re never faced with a large payment at any time. Your regular rental payments are agreed at the outset, so you always know what you’ll be paying – which is never more than you need to be paying – and budgeting is a far easier task.
One of the other significant benefits of TiS chair hire is the saving you make in terms of ongoing maintenance. With many rental agreements, should the equipment break down or need servicing, your rental partner will carry out the work for you (at no additional cost), often offering you a courtesy replacement chair while yours is being repaired.
Flexibility is another key advantage if you decide to hire your TiS chair or wheelchair. Especially in the case of long-term care, needs and situations can change quite dramatically over time. So if you were to purchase a TiS chair, you may need to replace it as the user’s condition alters. With a TiS chair hire agreement, however, that isn’t usually an issue. Specialist rental providers often offer you the option to change or upgrade your seating solutions, with different specifications or configurations. So you always have access to the most appropriate equipment for your users, and don’t face the ongoing challenge of sourcing and costing for new solutions.
And that’s the ultimate advantage of TiS chair hire. It’s an ideal way to ensure that your users have the right chair at all times. While you can concentrate on giving the best possible care, safe in the knowledge that everything else is taken care of.
