The Boston Tilt in Space portering chair has been designed and engineered to meet the needs of semi- ambulant and non – ambulant users, addressing pressure management issues and providing a range of additional support features that can be used to modify the chair to individual needs.
The Boston provides carers with a number of options to enable regular repositioning of user's to redistribute pressure and provide all day comfort. It comes with a unique combination, of Tilt in Space and independently controlled back recline and leg elevation and is ideal as part of a 24 hour postural care programme. Available in both a manual and electric model.
- The Tilt in Space allows the seat to back angle to remain the same whilst the whole seating system is tilted backwards, which means that the angle of the hips, knees and ankles are not affected during this movement. It also reduces the weight on the ischial tuberosities and redistributes the weight through the back. This feature can also help when moving someone in a hoist and can support better pelvic positioning by optimising the use of gravity to position the user in the optimal position.
- The backrest and leg rest can be adjusted separately providing a further range of back and leg combinations to support improved posture and pressure management. Couple this to the angle and height adjustable footplate and this makes the Boston chair a highly versatile pressure management porter.
- Semi-ambulant and non-ambulant users who require additional support to maintain or improve their posture. Allows for user positioning to allow for optional occupational performance.
