The M2 200kg Motorised Shower Chair is a heavy duty shower chair that is designed for heavier users. This may be suitable for bariatric users that require additional space in a shower chair and a greater safe working load when showering. The waterproof joystick controlled motorised propulsion promotes independence and reduces repetitive strain on the carers.
The M2 200kg Motorised Shower Chair is constructed with a heavy duty design. The chair is special made and load tested to up to 200kg. It is equipped with a joystick to control forward, backward driving and turning. It helps the user to independently get in and out of the shower more easily. Additionally, moving heavy users is easier because of the power from the motor. The shower chair will require charging as per the instructions supplied.
The joystick ensures easy control of the chair. Without the use of tools the joystick can be moved from the user to a holder on the handles where the helper can handle it. The speed is adjustable. There is a horn, and an indicator that shows how much power there is on the battery. When the user let the joystick go, the rear wheels brake immediately. This ensures the safety of the user when he or she is in the shower or on the toilet.
With a horseshoe PU foam seat that is 10cm larger than our standard seat, we have made sure that the user is sitting comfortably and that there is room for the majority of users. Despite the fact that the chair is made for larger users, the design is much the same as the rest of the M2 range which makes it easy to clean.
The M2 200kg Motorised Shower Chair has a comfortable horseshoe aperture seat which is 10cm wider than our standard seats, this ensures that you sit pleasantly, and that there is plenty of space for most users. The seat can be clicked on and off in the same way as our traditional standard seat. The M2 200kg Motorised Shower Chair only comes with a horseshoe aperture seat. As standard the seat comes with a lid to cover the aperture for non-toileting transfers or to cover a commode pan if fitted. The commode pan is sold separately.
The supplied height adjustable footrests are re-enforced to carry heavy weight. They can be lifted on and off without the use of tools. The chair also features lift up arms to assist with transfers or for cleaning. The backrest is a padded PU foam which gives support but leaves enough room for personal care.
