Bariatric Recliner and Unique Offerings
The Ambassador bariatric recliner surpasses Australian standards by providing optimal features for comfort and safety of larger users. Obesity comes with a lengthy list of health repercussions, especially if someone of this weight has been living this way for a lifetime. For the sake of overwhelming confusion, this article will be focusing on the associated health conditions that affect a person’s mobility and positioning. Morbid obesity wreaks havoc on an individual’s movement, causing silent and prolonged damage to joints (spine, hips, knees, etc.) and muscle tissue. With age, the joint breakdown and pain can become chronic resulting in surgeries and loss of mobility. Transferring from a seated to a standing a position and even taking a few steps can become challenging.
Bariatric Recliners are a convenient go-to option for home use for an individual with severely limited mobility, but not all recliners meet bariatric standards. Let’s review a few of those features as they pertain to the bariatric-appropriate recliner structure:
Linak Motors for the bariatric:
Linak is the world-leading manufacturer in medical grade electric motors and each motor is backed with a 3-year warranty. The motor system allows for easy recline, sitting, and standing options at a touch of the button. Adjustments are smooth and rest at multiple angles in order to better tailor positions to individual users’ unique needs. Positional changes ease joint pain and discomfort for the user as well as for caregivers since the burden of mobility assistance falls on the recliner. Linak motors for bariatric recliners limit reduce common worries about motor lag or failure due to increased body weight.
In the event that the motor fails or lacks full performance, the recliner comes with a rechargeable back-up battery. This prevents a recliner user from becoming stranded, which is essential for persons with incontinence and high risk for skin breakdown. A back-up battery system allots extra time for caregivers and users to address motor problems while the chair is still moving.
Bolted frame and steel seat, superior support for the bariatric recliner:
Steel properties are signature qualities of Ambassador recliners. As opposed to timber or chipboard, steel is long-lasting and durable and prevents loss of shape or sagging in the seat. The steel framework is held together by bolts rather than welding material. This provides ease of repair and covered by a 5-year warranty. For cleaning and delivery purposes, the frame has two wheels installed on the back as well as a removable backrest. Alternative wheels and castors can be added.
Customised seating options available:
As many medical equipment providers understand, there is no “one size fits all” when it comes to seating systems. Ambassador bariatric recliner seating can be customised by the means:
- pressure care
- cut outs
Accurate fitting is very important for spine and hip placement, skin health, and mobility in and out of the recliner.
Fabrics and foams:
Ambassador bariatric recliners have suitable fabrics and foams that undergo strict inspection to facilitate ideal seating comfort. Cushions are durable and long-lasting, which should be a priority for those with limited mobility. Fabrics come in 4 popular covers. Ambassador Bariatric Recliners offers extra colour selections to better personalise your chair to match you décor and healthcare requirements. Wortley and Carrflex are popular optional choices for nursing home and hospital clients.
Replaceable seat and back covers:
Additionally, seat and back cover fabrics are easily replaceable. Each cover comes with Velcro and zippers for smooth removal and replacement.
Optimal leg elevation on a bariatric recliner:
The steel frame offers simultaneous OR independent movement of the back rest and the foot rest for enhanced comfort. Leg elevation is vital for individuals who struggle with circulatory conditions or lymphatic drainage into the legs. And furthermore, leg elevation can offer relief for aching and inflamed joints of the legs and feet. Recliner leg elevation systems can be adjusted to suit angles and height requirements.
NDIS Approved provider:
Ambassador bariatric recliner chairs are NDIS approved as assisted living items. Therefore if you require assistance in the home environment you can consult your local Occupational Therapist for individualised plans.
