Additional Info

More Details

Seat
* The air bag in the seat is encased within a foam base and covered by a layer of slow recovery foam. The front edge of the foam base has an extra layer of bonded polyester
* The seating consists of an air filled, welded PVC bag encased in a foam cushion. Air filled bags and bonded polyester cushions are also used in the backrest sections and legrest area

Backrest
* The air bags in the two sectioned contoured backrest are also covered by bonded polyester
* The backrest can be lifted from the frame of the back of the chair to gain access to the back of each cushion section. A zipper at the back of each section allows access to the air bags. Each air bag has a valve and stopper, enabling the amount of air in each backrest section to be altered if overfilled. Once adjusted, the backrest cushioning is secured at the base of the backrest by hook and loop

Armrests
Wooden hand grips

Legrest
Incorporated in the chair with a chaise and extends from the edge of the seat when in the raised position. The foot section of the legrest contains an air bag with a bonded polyester layer over the top

Upholstery
Available in a wide variety of fabrics including a two way stretch fluid resistant fabric that is bacteria resistant and fire retardant treated. Combining this fabric with regular fabrics is possible

Controls
* Hand held and can be located on either side of the chair
* When not in use the controls can be stored in pockets on the outside of the chair, for easy access

Castors
* Front and rear castors are standard

Customisation
* The amount of support in the backrest can be customised via adjustment of the amount of air in the backrest cushions
* The chairs features a "zero wall proximity" design which enables them to be positioned close to the wall while being reclined

Option details
* Twin motor (back reclines to horizontal, with independent back, seat and lift function)
* Incontinence cover

Method Of Use

* The reclining and standing mechanism is operated by a hand held control on an extendable cord which can be mounted on the left or right side
* When moved into the reclining position, the legrest will automatically move up to support the legs as the backrest reclines. The legrest returns to the normal position when the chair moves into the standing position
* In the standing position, the chair lifts the person up and tilts them slightly forward
* Releasing the switch will automatically stop the chair at any position

Standards

Standards
Some assistive technology needs to meet Australian or other standards. Standards may relate to materials, manufacturing and installation. Products that meet Australian or international standards will have written certification. To find out if a product meets Australian Standards ask the supplier to show you the certificate. For more information about standards also see
http://at-aust.org/home/assistive_technology/standards.html

TGA
Many of the items on the Assistive Technology Australia website are categorised as a Medical Device. Medical devices that are approved for use in Australia have been entered into a national database called the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods (ARTG), which is maintained by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA). You can ask the supplier for the ARTG number for the device you wish to purchase and search the ARTG for the entry. To access information on the ARTG visit www.tga.gov.au

When buying a medical device it is advisable to only choose a medical device that is recommended by a healthcare professional and has been included on the ARTG.
