Introducing the ERGO shower chair. A new and more ergonomic design encourages a more upright and stable seating positon.The seat plate has a 5° pre-tilt, or lift at the knee for a more natural, squat position for toileting. Also a new shape for the seat plate is based on the imprint left behind while seated.(see pressure mapping diagram) This reduces pressure on genitals and bony prominences. Optional overlays add cushion depth, reduced commode openings or create a solid seat for showering. Transfer supports at front of seat allow the user to position themselves into a more comfortable position for toileting and/or showering.
ERGO shower chairs are manufactured from corrosion-free, stainless steel. Improved caster design reduces dirt collection in the axle area. The collection pan rail holds the pan closer to avoid splatters. the pan has volume markings inside and a convenient hook on the handle holds the lid when not in use. The chair can be cleaned in an autoclave at 80°-90°C. Cleaning instructions are noted in the manual.
ERGO seat is height adjustable from 18.5" - 23.4", armrests can be adjusted from 8.3"/9.8"/11.3" from seat. Footrests are height adjustable 12.4-18.2" from seat. Foot plate has adjustable fabric heel loops and plate is angle adjustable. The machine-washable, coated-nylon upholstery has multiple straps to adjust for tauntness or more slack to increase seat depth. Chair can be disassembled for travel or storage.
The ERGO line has many accessories to enhance the features of the chair, including optional seat overlays, positioning laterals, belts, calf supports, back supports and Comfort back upholstery. Many of the accessories for the ERGO are also compatible with the Ocean line.
