How can the HydroCare® help individuals?
The HydroCare incorporates various features that promote a sense of security. The seat height and seat width can be tailored to a wide range of individuals to ensure a comfortable fit and the appropriate management of their posture and pressure care needs whilst optimising function.
- Back angle recline adjusts the angle between the chair and seat back promoting comfort, relaxation and energy management for the user.
- Integral pressure management with WaterCell Technology and adjustable seat depth encourages maximum support and equal weight distribution with the aim of reducing the risk of pressure injury.
- A seat with an adjustable angle promotes pelvic stability and reduces the risk of sacral sitting and the user sliding down the chair.
- The sliding padded foot plate adequately supports and protects the feet during portering.
The HydroCare is also designed with the user’s support network in mind; four fully braked twin wheel castors distribute the chair’s load over a larger surface area, making it easier to manoeuvre the chair around the environment.
