Key thoughts:

  • Three measurements are required for selecting a chair: seat depth, seat height and seat width – see drawings below for clarification.

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.

Key thoughts:

  • Selection of pressure cushions is a clinical decision which involves many variables including undertaking a risk Professional input from a Wound Nurse may be required at this stage.
  • The Advance chair features vapor-permeable fabric as standard on seat base, legrest, backrest and armrests.

  • Filling can be removed from the multi-adjustable pillow backrest to accommodate different postural



Backrest options

Cleaning instructions for the fabric

The vinyl fabric can be cleaned by applying a suitable cleaning agent from a trigger spray, in a fine mist. Agitate with a synthetic sponge and wipe off.

Interchangeable pressure cushion

The integrated pressure cushion is supplied as standard on all chairs. This allows for easy integration of alternative cushions. The size of the aperture is 430 mm x 430 mm x 76 mm (17.5” x 17.5” x 3”).

Using a cushion of this size will ensure the height of the seat and armrests remains unchanged.


Remove the backrest cushions and unzip the cushion cover to expose the foam.



Pull the foam out carefully, starting at the rear and cut the perforations at the front.


This leaves the cut-out for an alternative cushion to be inserted. Insert the cushion and rezip the cover.


Accessories include:

Cocoon Backrest

The “reduced shear backrest” mechanism on the Configura Advance and Comfort chairs complements this backrest by giving the client extra trunk support, whilst retaining comfort and pelvic position.

On the standard Configura waterfall backrest, the Cocoon takes the place of the two bottom cushions, creating a more comfortable and supportive seating position for the client.

  • Suitable for use with Configura Advance chair with both standard and postural backrests

 Cushionair Cushion – Configura Advance

The Cushionair cushion is a dynamic pressure-relieving cushion which is normally recommended for users who have developed pressure damage.

The principle is that the cells of the cushion inflate and deflate alternately. This provides pressure relief via cyclic changes in loading and unloading.

There is a dial on the cushion pump which allows the cushion to be adjusted: soft through to firm. This setting is adjusted primarily in terms of comfort and is not purely based on the user’s weight.

The overlay can be fitted under the cushion, so the user is sitting directly onto the cells. The cushion however, does tend to fit better if the overlay is fitted over the top, as standard; this slightly decreases the effect of the dynamic therapy, but provides superior comfort and stability.

Key Information & Specs

All cushions are upholstered in a 4-way stretch, vapour permeable fabric and are covered with the chair ‘overlay’ which comprises 4-way stretch vapour permeable material and a 12 mm layer of visco foam.

Suitable for use with Configura Advance chair

 Drop-down Armrest – Configura Advance
