Modular shower chair range to offer wider consumer base off-the-shelf solution
Designed to suit a wide range of physical conditions and personal care needs, Invacare has launched its new Ocean Ergo family of modular shower chair commodes.
Highlighting the differences between the new Ocean Ergo and pre-existing Ocean range, Invacare says the new chairs include an ergonomic seat, featuring a contoured seat plate developed based on the imprints that people leave behind when seated.
The new design helps to encourage a more upright and stable seating position to promote user independence and enhance overall comfort, according to the company.
Additionally, a five degrees rearward seat angle and transfer supports at the front of the seat plate allows the user to position themselves into a comfortable and effective position for independent toileting.
The new range also aims to offer greater adaptability, with the modular design allowing chairs to be adapted to suit different user needs via simple adjustments to the armrest, seat height, leg rests and footplates or by adding a range of off-the-shelf accessories.
Lisa Cook, Marketing Manager for Lifestyle products, said: “This product has been designed in conjunction with therapists and carers, as well as disabled and elderly people, culminating in a comfortable, safe and now even more adaptable shower chair commode. Our aim, as always, is to bring enhanced independence, safety and dignity to elderly and disabled people as well as provide a safe working environment for families and carers.”
According to the company, the Ocean Ergo also offers a highly cost-effective alternative to prescriptive shower chair commodes and now presents even more variation within the Ocean shower chair range, allowing a wider range of elderly and disabled people to benefit from an off-the-shelf solution.
