Here is a chair that meets your Tilt-in-Space requirements with the added benefit of being a folding chair that can easily be transported.
Tilt-in-Space is designed to reduce pressure points by shifting patient weight. Tilt angle can be adjusted throughout the day for better pressure management, improved circulation, and increased sitting tolerance.
The Karman VIP-515 Tilt-in-Space chair incorporates features not found on competing tilt chairs. The VIP-515 is built around a lightweight folding frame with 0-35 degrees center-of-gravity tilt capability, lightweight removable seating upholstery, choice of 14" rear transport wheels or 20" self-propel wheels, and full-length adjustable-height flip-back armrests.
Keeping the patient center of gravity almost perfectly stationary throughout the 35 degrees tilt range allows for a more compact wheelbase without effecting stability. Tilting the chair is easy with the operator controlled hand-lever. Since the tilt function is aided by the perfectly matched gas cylinders, patient weight is not a factor in the tilting process.
But there is more to the VIP-515 than a center of gravity tilt system. The removable seat and back upholstery are treated with anti-bacterial, anti-staining agents, and includes a padded, contoured headrest for increased comfort. Seat to top of back is 34" (18" back + 16" head extension) head section is also removable.
Upholstery is easily removed, the back section folds down, and the chair folds up for storage or transport. Watch the video below for a complete demonstration.
Frame is constructed of lightweight 6061 T-6 Aircraft-grade Aluminum. The aluminum frame uses a paint coating with special Anti-bacterial materials for patient and caregiver safety.
Advantages of Tilt-in-Space over Recliner Wheelchair:
In addition to the weight shifting capabilities of the tilting chair, the tilt-in-space positioning allows the patient to maintain eye contact with others or even watch TV. With a simple recliner wheelchair, the patient ends up looking at the ceiling most of the day and decreases social activities. The Tilt feature provides a shift in position for individuals who cannot maintain pelvic, trunk, head position, and/or balance against gravity for prolonged periods of time. In addition, the tilt positioning will prevent the patient from slumping forward or collapsing where individuals are at risk for respiratory complications. Patients suffering from fixed hip joint contractures or postural hypotension will benefit from the Tilt-in-Space wheelchair as well.
The VIP-515 Tilt-in-Space chair includes:
0-35 degrees Tilt-in-Space
Removable seat, back and headrest.
Swing-away footrest, optional elevating legrests are available.
