"This is just to say a big thank you for getting the chair to my father so quickly. It has made such a difference to him and he now has both eyes open when he is in it after not opening either eye for ages. He has a smile on his face when he is in it. I never thought we would get such an improvement at this stage of his Alzheimers, but it means the world to see a bit more of Dad still there."
How to use the HydroFlex Chair
Setting up a Careflex HydroFlex chair is quite straightforward. Below are some of the guidelines you can follow:
Seat Height of the Careflex HydroFlex Chair
The height of the seat will depend on the user’s needs. If the user is in a position to stand, it would help if you adjusted the seat so that their feet can touch the floor to reduce pressure that could be exerted on the user’s thighs.
The right width and the most recommended one is that which can support the pelvic stability because it can always centrally align the spine. It is also important to note that you will need to allow for some space in which the user can adjust their position whenever they want to.
You must ensure that you are preventing sacral sitting by all means by ensuring that your user weight is distributed evenly. Set the depth and make sure that the patient’s back rests on the back cushion.
The recline is important because it will help to adjust the user’s hips. You can adjust to an upright position if the patient is eating. When the patient is resting, be sure to recline the back angle.
It is always recommended that you lower the foot rest before the user can move from the chair. Additionally, you can always elevate the leg rest depending on your patient’s needs.
It makes the patient stable and secure while distributing their weight evenly in the chair. Before you move the chair, make sure that your patient knows that you are moving the chair.
