The Melrose Porter healthcare chair is ideal as part of a 24-hour postural care programme as it has been specifically engineered to meet the comfort needs of individuals with pressure management issues and to provide adaptable support for neurological and postural conditions.

With a unique combination, of Tilt in Space and independently controlled back recline and leg elevation, carers can constantly adjust the user’s position to relieve pressure and provide all-day comfort.

The Melrose Porter healthcare chair has been designed with a high level of pressure and postural features and benefits to meet the needs of those with significant symptoms that affect their skin integrity and postural needs:

  • Parkinson’s Disease
  • Motor Neurone disease
  • Life limiting conditions

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, seat and width adjustment and this makes the Melrose Porter healthcare chair a highly versatile and comfortable pressure management porter.

The Melrose Porter can be used with either a mobile or overhead hoist to support safe moving and handling techniques for carers.

The Melrose Porter healthcare chair comes with the following key features as standard. There is the option to purchase additional features and these are detailed in the Optional Accessories Section.
