RAZ- Why should you know where the ischial pelvic alignment system is?

It is vital to understand where a client’s ischials are in order to create the perfect alignment with the aperture of the seat.

If the aperture is aligned with the client’s pelvis this will affect how successful their toileting is. If the aperture is in an incorrect position, this can have a huge impact on the amount of time a client is spending on the seat. If a client is having difficulty toileting then the amount of time using their toileting chair will increase, which can cause distress and will increase the risk of pressure sores.

When the aperture is too far forward, anterior tilting of the pelvis is encouraged. Good sitting balance can be achieved within a bowl-shaped seat of the RAZ shower commode chair. If you imagine the pelvis as a W shape then the lower points and supported within the bowl, relieving pressure from the area.

The size of the person also has an effect on how the seat is positioned, for example a larger person will want a seat further forward with a slackened backrest in order to accommodate a shelf. With the RAZ shower commode chair, the seat depth and angle can be slightly changed to accommodate all size users.

In conclusion, if you do know where the ischial pelvic alignment system is, it will save time for toileting, save time for the prescriber and above all it will save any discomfort.
