The XXL Wheeled Shower Chair is designed for easy access, independence, safety and on the caregiver terms. The inside width of the chair is 61 or 71 cm, but using a 5cm high PU foam seat and 7cm free space to the armrests allows the body mass to fall down, instead of fading out to the sides. The impossible “wide inside but small outside” is obtained. This allows the XXL-Rehab Shower Commode to pass through nearly all modern doorways.
The footrest is designed to carry 100kg each and is also side/width adjustable, so access to intimate hygiene is possible and people with the fat-tissue placed on the inside of their leg can sit with legs apart (up to 110cm) and still have foot support.
One of the unique features is a split toilet seat, a long open hole: 44cm and 22cm at the widest point. This to enable a correct use of the chair, it eases access for caregivers and avoids incidents where material ends up in unwanted places. The ability for bariatric users to reach far back to reach the armrest is usually not present. Therefore the armrests have been made with a length of 64cm and stick out 7cm from the seat base, ready to welcome and support the hands of mobile users.
This enables the user to get into the chair by him/herself. Another option is the butterfly armrests. Butterfly armrests add more than 10cm to the seating width. The space between backrest and seat has a clearance of 32cm. This gives space for a possible bulbose gluteal region, but also enables the caregivers to reach for the sling and position the user better.
