The Encora’s functionality is central to its success. A simple manual action enables the chair to be lowered or raised to attain the correct seat height for each user that helps to maintain an even weight distribution, the posture and stability of the individual allowing feet to be positioned firmly on the floor when seated and assists the ambulant to stand from the chair more readily.
From the highly advanced Intelli-Gel® seat module for those at very high risk of developing pressure problems through to the Transflo Gel cushion and Reflexion foam seat modules for those at medium to high risk. Indeed the flexibility of the Encore range as with the majority of the specialist seating portfolio enables users to either integrate their own pressure relieving seat cushion into the seat module of the chair or apply a flat seat board upon which it can be effectively used.
The Encora’s Advanced Comfort Backrest incorporating the highly acclaimed Reflexion foam is available to mould itself to the contours of the user to help disperse body weight more evenly over a greater surface area contributing to the comfort and support of the user. Essential to the design of the sculpted backrest are the built in lateral and lumbar supports as well as the integral flexible headrest providing further positioning support and comfort for the user.
Furthermore the Encora has the ability to easily adjust the tilt-in-space positioning to facilitate ultimate pressure management without over-exertion by the carer using a simple gas action adjustment mechanism whilst the independent back recline facility enables the user to attain the most comfortable, relaxed resting position possible. Similarly the legrest can be elevated by either the carer or user by the touch of a small lever on the arm of the chair.
