Solutions for positioning users further back in chair or wheelchair

Whether or not we are aware of it, when sitting down we are constantly moving and changing our sitting position in order to be comfortable and to avoid pressure. For a person sitting in a wheelchair, this might lead to sliding to the front of the chair without being able to independently move further back again to an improved and more comfortable sitting position. The Positioning-range of Handicare offers a number of assistive devices facilitating positioning further back in a chair or a wheelchair; both  devices which are used only when needed and devices which are left under the user at all times. The choice of assistive device(s) depends on the activity level of the user as well as on the number of available caregivers.

From simple to complex scenarios

Hereunder you will find Handicare's solutions for manual positioning of active and somewhat active users, from simple to more complex scenarios. More information about the different transfer aids and how to use them can be found on the respective product pages.

Combination of devices provides individually adapted solutions 

To create optimal solutions for users with different needs, most assistive devices can be used in combination with one or several other manual transfer aids. The user manual, the movies and the "See also" section at the bottom of the respective product page provide more information and suggestions on combinations.

For more information about our solutions for passive users, please go to the For lifting of passive users section which is available in the left hand side navigation.
