The tilting Combi commode/shower chair is an assistive device allowing the user to sit down safely and comfortably, in an upright or in a reclined position, during toileting or showering. The features of the tilting Combi commode/shower chair also provide better working conditions for the caregiver, as there is less need for bending over, and they also allow for better contact between user and caregiver.
Furthermore, transfer of a user from a lift into a reclined chair becomes both easier and more convenient, both for the caregiver and for the user.
Combi, tilt is mobile and very easy to move between different locations as well as to manoeuver, turn and adjust to different positions in various settings and situations. It is supplied complete with toilet rails and can be used freestanding, with a bucket, which is available as an accessory, or standing over a toilet.
Combi tilt is available in two variants with manual or powered tilt. Both variants are suitable both for institutional and home care use.
The variant with manual tilt is activated by a hand lever at the rear of the chair. The caregiver can stand either at the rear or at the side of the chair while operating the tilting function.
The tilting function of the variant with battery powered tilt is effortlessly activated, backwards and forwards, using the hand control. The caregiver can move flexibly around the chair, always maintaining good eye-to-eye contact and assist the user if required, while operating the tilting function. A smooth start-stop actuator function provides for infinite tilting angle.
Both variants of Combi, tilt offer the following features and advantages:
