Quickie SEDEO ERGO

Quickie SEDEO ERGO

With patented Biometric Repositioning, SEDEO ERGO seating is designed for effective independent repositioning throughout the day. Moving in or out of recline can cause the user to slide out of an optimal posture. SEDEO ERGO moves from reclined to a seated position by first passing through a transitional tilted position to use gravity to realign the pelvis in a smooth, effortless motion. Biometric Repositioning envelopes the body and ensures the pelvis is properly positioned. SEDEO ERGO is available with C-Me to drive up to 3 mph while elevated.

Raz-CAT

Raz-CAT

This compact, tilting rehab shower commode chair was specifically designed for growing children and smaller adults. The Raz-CAT’s adjustability and modularity make it ideal to fit kids and teens through childhood and beyond. An 18" wide seat frame and base allow the Raz-CAT to roll over most toilets. Adjustable height enables the unit to clear toilet bowls and provides easier hygiene access by the caregiver. Backs are available in 14", 16" and 18" widths and in 15" or 18" heights. Seat depth adjusts from 11" to 16" with the standard Raz-CAT seat. Tilt capacities up to 40° reduce pressure and provide optimal trunk positioning. With a frame that’s 3" shorter than the Raz-AT, the CAT (Compact Attendant Tilt) is more maneuverable than larger hygiene units, but still is compatible with Raz accessories and custom seats.
