So, with this in mind, the RAZ tilt in space chair (RAZ AT) has an adjustment to allow the chair to achieve a forward tilt. This is to provide support for users that still transfer by standing, either on their own or with a transfer aid. When the chair is tilted forward, the lower part of the seat is lower than the back of the seat making it easier for the patient to sit further back in the chair and therefore over the aperture correctly. For some users, if the RAZ didn’t have forward tilt they would have to be fully hoisted into the chair taking away that independence.
With users that have conditions whereby their muscle strength deteriorates during the course of the day, its likely more assistance is required during the day to help with that transfer. So, with the forward tilt, users can perform a standing transfer, a transfer with a career or by using a transfer aid or hoist.
Allowing the users to keep this independence attributes to a continual sense of achievement.
