RAZ AT - how low can we go?

Our client required a shower chair which could accommodate a standing transfer...and we delivered.

The RAZ AT, our most popular shower commode chair, is very popular due to its adjustability.

Seat height adjustment is one of the most commonly requested adjustments to our shower chairs. But generally speaking our clients require the chair to go over a WC pan so by the time you clear the china, build in the thickness of the frame and the thickness of the seat module you're looking at a minimum seat height of 530mm.

With a tilt-in-space chair, this doesn't generally present too much of an issue as many of our users are hoisted for transfers. In fact, having a higher seat height often helps with these transfers.

That said, our clients have diverse requirements and we like to help where we can. The OT requested a chair which allowed the user to experience tilt in space for relaxation and confidence in the shower. However doing a standing transfer was particularly important. And the seat height was required to be 450mm and less if possible!

We set to and designed a modified AT which would provide just what she required. The finished product was an awesome result: we achieved a floor to seat height of 440mm, we maintained a tilt-in-space range of 25˚, and the chair still has some height adjustment built in!

Along with that the client has a visco-foam seat to provide the ultimate in comfort and skin protection. with the standard IPAS seat depth adjustment system built in.

All in all, a superb result!!
