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.
