Etac R82 boosts bathing offering with next generation of shower commode chairs
Etac R82 has launched the new Swift Mobil-2 shower commode chair range, with a number of redesigned features and details building on the company’s original popular design.
A supplier of equipment to statutory and private sector community equipment providers, Etac R82’s portfolio supports mobility, care and independence for end-users and facilitate safer moving and handling for carers.
According to the company, the durability of its Swift Mobil-2 shower commode chair, which comes with a five-year warranty and seven-year life expectancy, aims to alleviate the strained budgets of healthcare providers, promising improved re-issuing and reduced servicing required.
Building on the credentials of its predecessor, the new Etac Swift Mobil 2 is a flexible, attendant-controlled chair range which encompasses four variations: Swift Mobil-2, Swift Mobil-2 XL, Swift Mobil 24”-2 and Swift Mobil Tilt-2.
The XL provides an extra 6cm of width for larger users whilst the Tilt-2 provides tilt-in-space functionality, ranging between +5-degree to -35-degree controlled repositioning.
The self-propel Swift Mobil 24”-2 enables seamless side transfers, while the pelvis and overall postural positioning have been optimised. In addition, bespoke specification can be enhanced with a range of optional accessories, ranging from specialist seat pads to lateral supports
Jon Preater, Etac R82 Managing Director comments: “2019 continues to be a significant year for the healthcare industry as we once again introduce a true innovation.
“The Swift Mobil-2 represents the very latest thinking in assistive equipment that purely centres on client and carer needs. We believe this next generation shower commode chair represents a step-change in assisted toileting and bathing and will elevate care to the next level.”
The range includes unique seat design and details for carers to provide care easier, with a larger rear opening enabling more access for hygiene tasks whilst the seat surface improves grip, comfort and efficient cleaning.
Additionally, minimal, precision-fitted components help with hygiene control and the bathing range’s redesigned and quick-drying mesh backrest is adjustable to suit varying postures, whilst its enveloping flexibility provides additional support.
Adaptability to individual user needs is a key strength of the new Swift Mobil-2 highlights Etac R82, with 45-60cm seat height range, laterally adjustable fold-up armrests and a wider XL back option. With its SWL of 160kg, the new shower chair commode range is also suitable for the majority of semi-ambulant users.
In addition, the new chair range boasts a number of redesigned features, including sculpted footrests and multi-adjustable headrest.https://thiis.co.uk/etac-r82-boosts-bathing-offering-with-next-generation-of-shower-commode-chairs/https://i1.wp.com/thiis.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/Etac-Swift-Mobil-Tilt-2.jpg?fit=1000%2C668&ssl=1https://i1.wp.com/thiis.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/Etac-Swift-Mobil-Tilt-2.jpg?resize=150%2C150&ssl=1NewsroomSupplier Newsattendant-controlled,bathing,care homes,community equipment,equipment,Etac R82,footrests,independent living,shower commode chair,Swift Mobil-2Etac R82 has launched the new Swift Mobil-2 shower commode chair range, with a number of redesigned features and details building on the company's original popular design.
