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.

Seat Width

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.

Seat Depth

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.

Recline Angle

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.

Leg rest

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.
