An extremely comfortable health chair with independent movement of the Tilt in Space, Backrest Recline and Leg Rest Elevation functions enabling a whole range of postural positions for high level pressure management care. Available in both a manual and electric model.
The Boston can be used as a general porter chair, but is equally suited to conditions, such as Parkinsons that require a chair that can be used as part of an intensive 24-hour care programme.
The Boston is ideal as part of a 24-hour postural care programme. It has been prescribed for clients that require intensive care such as, Parkinson’s, Multiple Sclerosis and or for those with life limiting conditions.
With some client conditions it has helped to reduce agitation, increased their levels of interaction and engagement in activities and provided them the opportunity to sleep in deep comfort. However, the Boston is equally at home being used as a general porter chair.
The Boston is ideal for life limiting conditions, palliative care, deteriorating conditions and those clients with have issues with agitation and wandering:
Both reclining and tilt systems can provide pressure relief, increase circulation, improve head, neck and trunk control, improve functional posture and positioning, support safe transfers by various means and minimise variations / fluctuations in the client’s muscular control. Tilt and recline systems work predominantly by moving the persons centre of gravity which whilst maintaining posture and ergonomic support allows the pannus to be redistributed. This can be used to alleviate pressure, help the respiratory system and allow access for specific skin care tasks.
The backrest and leg rest can be adjusted separately providing a further range of back and leg combinations to support improved posture and pressure management, particularly aiding the amount of hip flexion.
Couple this with the angle and height adjustable footplate and this makes the Boston chair a highly versatile and comfortable pressure management porter.
The chair can be used with either a mobile or overhead hoist to support safe moving and handling techniques for carers.
The Boston comes as standard with an overall weight limit of 159 kg (25 stone) and with a maximum leg rest weight limit of 57 kg (9 stone).
The overall weight limited will be restricted when certain pressure management seat cushions such as the Airform and Celliform cushions are selected. Details of these can be found in the Seat Cushion Section. The maximum leg rest weight limit is not affected by the seat cushion selection and will always remain at 57 kg (9 stone).
