The Valencia Porter chair brings together benefits of specialist seating with the rise function that can be critical for the care of ambulant users.
The four locking castors allow the chair to be moved whether or not the chair is occupied and give security to the chair whilst standing the client. It is adaptable for different patient sizes and designed for users that require pressure relief or additional postural support whilst sitting. The Valencia Porter has a number of different functions including electric tilt in space - a movement which redistributes pressure on the body thus reducing the threat of pressure sores, and helps to keep the user sitting with their pelvis at the back of the seat and preventing slipping or slump. This helps them maintain a good posture and can increase the users line of vision.
When a user may be sitting for extended periods of time, keeping pressure sores at bay or helping to heal an existing pressure sore is paramount for everyone involved. The seat cushion can be changed for different pressure requirements starting with a medium risk visco-elastic cushion, designed to prevent sores. This can be upgraded to a gel or even an alternating air cushion for patients that are managing an existing pressure sore.
The adaptable cushions on the chair provide extremely high levels of comfort and are also designed to accommodate patients with spinal curvature or bring in support where there may be muscle weakness. These cushions can be moved or adapted at a later date to continue supporting a user whose needs may be changing on a daily/weekly basis.
The central section of the chair, or ‘contact area’, is upholstered in vapour permeable material which is water-resistant and makes cleaning and maintenance of the chair easy. This fabric is air-permeable, meaning that air can circulate through the fabric, keeping the skin fresh and moisture levels low, preventing skin damage.

Thank you so very much. It is great working with someone who gets the job done - and done well.
The chairs are lovely and our residents are so comfy in them. It is much nicer now we can get even our frailest residents out of bed and comfy - well worth the money, thank you!
We found the service that we received from Wealden and it’s representatives to be timely and professional. It was so useful to receive a demonstration of the Valencia Porter Seating System in order to inform our decision making process prior to placing the order. Also, staff were very grateful to receive a full demonstration of the use of the chairs on the day of provision. We are hopeful that the chairs will make a real difference to our patients and their carers
