In today’s society, the number of overweight people is increasing steadily. Overweight people are also getting heavier. Handicare’s Heavy Duty commode/shower chair meets the specific needs and requirements of these users and provides safe solutions. This practical, mobile commode/shower chair features a reinforced frame allowing for users weighing up to 300 kg.
Heavy Duty commode/shower chair is an assistive device allowing the larger and heavier user to sit down safely and comfortably during showering or toileting. It is supplied complete with toilet rails and can be used freestanding, with a bedpan or bucket which are available as accessories, or standing over a toilet.
Designed for larger users
Compared to standard commode/shower chairs, Handicare’s Heavy Duty commode/shower chair features a larger seat with a width of 600 mm and a depth of 525 mm. Furthermore, the seat and the backrest are designed to provide ergonomic support in the right places while, at the same time, offering sufficient free space to enable the user to sit comfortably.
Comfortable and practical toilet seat
The chair features a soft and comfortable toilet seat with an open front making it easier for the user to reach intimate body parts without standing up. The toilet seat is hinged and can be lifted up for easier cleaning.
Replacement seats and an insert for the toilet opening are available as accessories.
Strong, practical armrests
Heavy Duty commode/shower chair features specially designed, strong and practical armrests able to withstand a lot of load, including the sideways forces that are exerted during sideways transfers. The armrests offer comfortable, ergonomic support for the forearms while sitting and they are long enough to provide sustained support when standing up and sitting down. The armrests can be folded down individually, e.g. to facilitate a sideways transfers. When folded up again, the armrests are automatically locked to offer secure support for the user. The design of the armrests also prevents clothing from getting caught.
Height adjustable, continuous footrest for optimal support
The chair features a continuous footrest fitted with a strong textile covering. The continuous design allows the user to always choose the most comfortable position for the feet. To enable optimal support for all users, the height of the footrest can be adjusted. The connector rod ensures that height adjustment is always symmetrical, allowing for both feet to be at the same height. The footrest can be folded up in under the seat not to get in the way for the user during sitting down or standing up from the chair.
Durable, double braked castors
Heavy Duty commode/shower chair is mobile, fitted with four plastic castors with a diameter of 125 mm, making the chair very easy to move between different locations as well as to manoeuver, turn and adjust to different positions in various settings and situations. The castors are extremely robust and have a long track record of use in wet environments such as bathrooms. The double brakes on each castor ensure that the chair remains in a stable, fixed position when providing care and performing transfers.
