How can the HydroTilt® XL help individuals?
- The waterfall back can be reconfigured to allow extra space to comfortably accommodate the gluteal shelf improving the user’s posture, ensuring appropriate pressure care and limiting the user being pushed anteriorly in the chair
- The negative angle leg rest can help accommodate larger lower limbs whilst maintaining optimum knee flexion position; weight can then be evenly distributed through the feet. It can also allow a more stable placement of feet for sit to stand transfers
- 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
- Powered tilt-in-space improves pelvic stability without affecting the user’s hip and knee angle, promotes energy management and encourages pressure redistribution
Seating individuals with increased body weight and size can increase the risk of injury to carers, support staff and clinicians. The HydroTilt XL has powered functions and heavy duty castors to make chair use and manoeuvrability smoother and safer for the user and their support network.
