RAZ SP impresses with dynamic back angle recline

The new Livability Spinal Injury Centre in Holton Lee recently asked us to show them the RAZ SP self propelled shower chair with a visco seat for pressure relief.

The Livability Spinal Injury Centre is based within a wellbeing discovery centre set in 350 acres of Dorset countryside. The Livability Spinal Injury Centre will provide respite and rehabilitation services to people with spinal cord injury (SCI). Building on and maintaining rehabilitation skills learnt in specialist NHS SCI services, the new centre will focus on providing visitors with a range of practical support to equip them for life beyond their cord injury.

The centre will have spaces for up to 13 people to stay at any one time and will offer them specially designed, accessible facilities that will feel like a ‘home from home’ environment.

The centre manager was looking for shower hygiene chairs that provided superior support along with pressure management. The RAZ SP was an obvious choice, being used at many of the regional NHS SCI centres. During our assessment process, it became clear that they required something a little special - a reclining backrest.

The RAZ SP has adjustable back angle as standard. Being able to adjust the back angle between 85, 90 and 95 is always a useful feature for users who may find they need adjustment to their chair set up as they progress. However, with this multi-user environment, the decision to include a dynamic bank angle recline was taken.

The reclining backrest is normally an option reserved for our tilt-in-space chair but some modifications were made to allow this to be fitted to the self-propelled model. This allows extra space and flexibility to enable the chairs to work for the majority of users well into the future.

The chairs were also equipped with the nifty swing-away thoracic supports, which provide the optional extra postural cue that these users sometimes require.

We take this opportunity to thank Livability for their generous support, and wish them all the best in their exciting journey!
