SymmetriCare Postural Management Chair

Postural management chair that adapts to a variety of sitting and lying positions

SymmetriCare chair forms an essential part of any 24 hour postural management plan by providing the solution for time out of regular positioning systems such as wheelchairs or task seating. 

Whilst unsupportive lounge chairs can put those who are unable to move well at risk of developing an unconventional body shape, the tilt-in-space SymmetriCare chair is flexible to provide support right where it’s needed most. 
 
This is achieved through multipositionable armrests that are removable to facilitate side transfer, an elevating height and angle adjustable footplate, and a multi-adjustable, conformable backrest that can be locked into different positions at a range of adjustment points. 

Outstanding Benefits:

If a client has a tendency to lean further to one side, then the SymmetriCare back offers extra lateral and lumbar support just where it counts, with minimum adjustment. This is ideal for multi-carer or multiuser environments where it is often the case that “less is more”. 

All fabrics are waterproof and “scrubbable”. Covers are easy to fit and remove and all areas of the chair are easily accessible for easy cleaning. 

Often individual castors make things awkward for busy staff to release the brakes and to manoeuvre the chair around – The SymmetriCare offers a single easily accessed brake bar and straighter steering, reducing bumps and collisions.

Multi-adjustable and re-settable

Every aspect of the chair can be adjusted and are calibrated* to help when setting and re-setting the chair. 
  • Seat width and depth
  • Seat height*
  • Arm height and angle
  • Leg length
  • Back rest
  • Leg rest
  • Foot-plate
  • Tilt-in-space angles
  • 3 way adjustable upper back and wings*
 
*Medium and Large Chairs only

Sitting can be hard work!

If you find it hard to sit in traditional chairs, then the adjustments available in the SymmetriCare will provide adequate support. The ability to move the upper back and wings independently allows a further degree of accommodation and using the tilt in space will get gravity working for you. This chair is ideal for lying, supine, side/prone or head down for postural drainage.

Testimonials

Dear Sir/Madam

TALL CLASSIC POWER SYMMETRICARE CHAIR

My son is severely mentally and physically disabled and a chronic epileptic. Choosing the right equipment that suits all his complex needs is very challenging and sometimes impossible to get right.

For the last 14 years only the Symmetrikit chair has come close to meeting most of his extremely complex needs. I am pleased to say that the new Symmetricare chair which we received last week now meets all of them.

My husband is 6 feet tall and the extra height of the new chair has helped his back as he no longer needs to stoop to feed. My son no longer leans to the right as the Symmetricare back module keeps him in a central position. The adaptability of the chair is second to none and the covers and cushioning are luxurious and easy to clean. My son's skin is very sensitive and after his first day of sitting in his new chair there were no marks on his skin.

Please would you pass on my thanks to your representative for his expert advice in quoting for the new chair, and then, on delivery, his patience in setting it up as my son was not well on the day he arrived. I am extremely grateful to him.

Yours faithfully

Patricia Naguib
