Dual motor operation allows independent adjustment of the legrest elevation and backrest recline. This enables infinite positioning for maximum comfort and support for users with more complex requirements. A dual motor chair has four buttons on the handset. Does not have Tilt-in-Space.


Tilt-in-space improves pelvic stability and posture, pressure distribution, circulation, makes hoisting easier and reduces the tendency to slip forward in the chair. By maintaining the same angle at the hips (i.e. the same angle between backrest and seat base), and tilting the entire chair back, the user can achieve a relaxed position whilst maintaining pelvic stability. Maintaining the position of the pelvis promotes good sitting and reduces the user’s susceptibility to developing poor posture. As more weight is transferred through the trunk and less through the base, a larger seating footprint is achieved and pressure is distributed over a wider area. This reduces the risk of pressure sores in the sensitive sacral and ischial tuberosity areas. The ability to have the user’s ankles higher than the hips can also aid circulation and reduce fluid build-up in the legs.When hoisting, Tilt-in-Space enables gravity to assist in correct positioning of the user’s pelvis at the back of the chair. The independent legrest enables tilt to be used whilst lowering the legs. Suitable for users with reduced knee flexion or shortened hamstrings.




Key thoughts:

  • 3 measurements are required for selecting a chair; seat depth, seat height and seat width – see below drawings for clarity.
  • When selecting a chair size, prioritise the chair measurements in the following order: seat depth, seat height then seat width. This will ensure the selected size is the right overall proportion for the user.
  • If you cannot find the size you need, check out the other chairs in our range or contact us as we may be able to supply a special size.

Key thought:

  • Tilt-in-space can significantly improve midline sitting so increased lateral support may not be necessary if the user tends to slump mildly to one side.

Clean and care for the fabric on a regular basis and it will maintain its condition and appearance. The new generation of Microfibre cleaning cloths without soap are extremely effective for general care and maintenance. You can also wipe clean regularly with a damp cloth to remove dust particles and light soiling. It is recommended to vacuum the upholstery once a week.

Most stains can be removed by wiping clean. Remove spillages promptly (within 15 minutes) with cold water. For extreme soiling control use a 5% Sodium Hypochlorite (Bleach) solution.

Do not machine wash or dry clean.

Do not apply other chemicals such as polish, solvents or stain remover.






Key thoughts:

  • Selection of pressure cushions is a clinical decision which involves many variables including a risk assessment tool. Professional input from a Tissue Viability Nurse or District Nurse may be required at this stage.
  • Vapour permeable fabric as standard on seat base and legrest.
