Hydroflex

£2,400.00 Exc. VAT

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 HydroFlex combines simple design, easy set up and uncomplicated accessories with a comprehensive range of features providing the flexibility to meet specific and often demanding positioning needs. The chair is extremely adaptable and can accommodate fluctuating conditions and changes in posture and functional requirements whilst remaining robust and user-friendly. The HydroFlex can be a useful part of a rehabilitation programme.

The HydroFlex offers Tilt-in-Space positioning with articulating back and back angle recline allowing the chair to be set up with correct hip positioning before repositioning without destabilising the pelvis. The HydroFlex offers an extremely wide range of functional seating positions including upright for mealtimes and rehabilitation activities and fully reclined for napping.

The adjustability of the HydroFlex is complemented by a wide range of accessories to enhance the posture management features of the chair. Comes with a 5 year warranty.
