Healthcare equipment can be expensive, it often needs to be customised to meet the client’s needs and is heavily used. For loan stores in particular, the product is passed to the next user and the next until it ultimately becomes un-useable. Then the process starts again, costing the provider more money to replace, time after time.
But what if a piece of healthcare equipment had been designed with product longevity and long-term cost savings in mind?
The impressive RAZ shower chair range has been chosen for this blog post.
The range not only meets the needs of the users, it also incorporates those of the providers. Let’s take a look.
Meeting the needs of the providers
The RAZ shower chairs have been specially constructed using highly durable materials to ensure reliability and longevity, eliminating the need to replace shower chairs regularly. This saves the provider money whilst providing a consistently high standard of care.
The impressive RAZ range is also full of features, options and accessories, making the chairs suitable for a wide range of users needs. The RAZ shower chairs can be fine-tuned to an individual user or can be easily manipulated to become the perfect chair for a multiuser environment. On top of that, each RAZ chair in the range is suitable for a person whose needs might change or progress overtime, and will prevent the need of having to change pieces of equipment multiple times. The range makes it easy and affordable to meet specific needs without having to use bespoke equipment.
The adjustability of the RAZ shower chair range
Below are just some of the ways the RAZ shower chair range can be configured to meet different user needs:
- The arm rest height and angle can be easily adjusted to ensure maximum comfort and support for the user.
- The seat-to-floor height adjustability allows the chair to easily clear different toilet heights and gives carers easier, more manageable access to the user.
- With the RAZ shower chair, there is the option to have a 5-10% anterior (forward) tilt, providing a natural position to stand from and so facilitating standing transfers.
- The adjustable back rest angle is ideal for those with a limited range of movement or those that don’t have the full range of motion in their hips.
- By adjusting the aperture position, the RAZ shower chair can align to the user’s pelvis, making it ideal for those with spinal or pelvic conditions.
The RAZ shower chair range definitely ticks all the boxes when it comes to meeting the needs of the client, whether they are the users, the carers, the equipment providers and so on. Configurability has been vital in its design, whilst durability has been of upmost importance in its construction. Married together, these elements will provide long lasting products with long-term savings.
