Configura® Rise and Recline
80-year-old Martin is being treated for lung cancer. The palliative care team provide Martin and his family with support at home. Martin is experiencing significant fatigue and weakness, he tires very quickly when sat out in his current armchair and he is unable to retain an appropriate upright seated position. This has also resulted in difficulty pushing himself to stand. Due to poor mobility and rapid weight loss, Martin is now being treated for a pressure sore on his sacrum.
Deidre is 80 years old and experiences great difficulty with her mobility and lifting her legs into bed, due to very oedematous lower limbs. Deidre had a riser recliner with leg-rest elevation to reduce the Oedema and a riser function to assist with transfers.
Graham is an 85 year old with severe arthritis, a significant kyphosis and poor skin integrity, he has very restricted range of movement and mobility. Graham’s privately purchased armchair was very wide and deep, there was no integrated pressure relief and so a pressure cushion was perched on top.
