The SmartSeatPro II
The SmartSeatPro II is a highly adjustable modular seating system for children to adults that takes specialist seating to the next level for those with complex postural management and pressure care needs. The SmartSeatPro II’s unique design allows for various configurations to ensure postural asymmetries can be fully stabilised, accommodated, and, where possible, corrected from the feet to the pelvis and through the spine to the head.
The SmartSeatPro II benefits from a Tilt-in-Space, Back Angle Recline, and a multi-adjustable back and head system with new sections of modifiable filling. The armrests allow for quick arm height adjustments and are labelled seat width guides to assist with seat width adjustments, and they are also fully removable to help with side transfers. The chair’s design gives Health and Social Care Professionals maximum adaptability to optimise posture, function and comfort for individuals in all environments, including domestic settings, schools, care homes and hospitals. The operation of chair functions can be either manual gas action control or battery-controlled motors and a pro-control option. The chair provides high levels of comfort and the robust construction quality associated with CareFlex chairs. The SmartSeatPro II has a Lifetime Frame Warranty for extra peace of mind.
MULTI-ADJUSTABLE BACK AND HEAD SYSTEM

- The individual components can be quickly and easily adjusted tool-free.
- The three lower sections can be altered in height, depth, angle, offset and rotation.
- The top articulating head section also allows for specific profiling of the back of the chair to accommodate the more complex head and neck positions.
- The lower lumbar and sacral sections can be further configured to meet the individual’s pelvic stability needs fully.
TILT-IN-SPACE (TiS) WITH BUILT-IN INCLINOMETER
Seat to back angle remains the same – the whole system tilts posteriorly.Promotes pelvic stability.
Encourages pressure distribution whilst also managing energy levels.Assists with hoisting and positioning.The tilt angle will be dependent on safety, tolerance, and appropriateness.The new informative inclinometer will aid seating prescription and safe use.
BACK ANGLE RECLINE (BAR)
The seat-to-back angle adjusts to open up the hip angle.It assists with comfort and reduces abdominal pressure.Accommodates reduced hip flexion range of movement and helps alleviate any associated pain.The back angle will depend on the hip range of movement and pelvic stability.The visual back angle indicator for the degree of recline will aid seating prescription and safe use.
Adaptable trunk control with independent height and width adjustment is achievable with the new ergonomically shaped external lateral support.Individuals who may require firmer postural support to achieve an optimum midline position.
CHANNELLED LEG REST
The channelled elevating leg rest provides comfort whilst maintaining an aligned and safe position at the lower limbs.Leg rest elevation angle will depend on the range of movement/hamstring muscle length.The new negative angle can accommodate a limited knee range of movement, allowing a more comfortable seating position for those with contractures or tight hamstrings.
ANGLE ADJUSTABLE FOOTPLATE
Foot support is essential for sensory feedback and reducing pressure injury risk.Encourages postural stability to allow freedom of movement in the upper limbs from their load-bearing role.The angle adjustability can accommodate fixed positions at the ankle or correct foot posture to a more neutral position for comfort and pressure distribution.
