Mobile and self-propelling models for safe transfers at the swimming pool
Handicare’s Swimming pool hoist chair is made from high-quality polished stainless steel 316; a durable material which is ideal for demanding environments such as swimming pool areas. The chair is available in two models; mobile and self-propelling, for users with different needs and requirements.
Swimming pool hoist chair is an assistive device allowing the user to sit down safely and comfortably during showering or at the washbasin. The chair provides stable support for less active users with weak legs, low stamina and/or poor balance who sit on the chair for longer periods of time and who require more support and assistance during sit-to-stand and seated transfers.
The chair can also be used for transfers to and from or even in the swimming pool. Four hoist rings on the back and front of the frame makes it suitable for use in combination with stationary or mobile lifts. The location of the hoist rings provide for optimum balance and security during lifting.
Comfortable seat and backrest
Both models of Swimming pool hoist chair feature a seat and a backrest which are designed to provide comfortable and ergonomic support. The seat and the backrest are made from a strong textile covering; a woven polyester with plastic coating, which is stretched tightly and firmly attached to the frame and which adapts to the body temperature during use. The covering is fully glued around and flush with the frame to facilitate sideways and standing transfers and provide for good hygiene.
The textile covering is available only in a neutral white colour.
Strong and practical armrests
Swimming pool hoist chair features strong and practical armrests designed to withstand a lot of load, including the sideways forces that are exerted during sideways transfers.The armrests offer comfortable 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 up individually, e.g. to facilitate a sideways transfers. When folded down, the armrest rests behind the backrest thereby preventing fingers, skin or hair from getting caught.
The armrests are made from aluminium with a white coating and anthracite coloured polyurethane (PUR) foam with a closed cell structure.
Durable, double braked castors and 24″ self-propelling wheels
The mobile Swimming pool hoist chair is fitted with four stainless steel 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. 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.
The self-propelling Swimming pool hoist chair is fitted with four stainless steel castors and two self-propelling plastic wheels with a diameter of 24″. The self-propelling wheels feature a handrim and a brake, allowing the user to, easily and independently, manoeuver, turn and adjust the chair to different positions in various settings and situations.
Height adjustable footrests for optimal support
Both models of Swimming pool hoist chair feature height adjustable footrests providing optimal support for all users. A connector rod ensures that height adjustment is always symmetrical, allowing for both feet to be at the same height. The footrests 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.
