Heron

Heron

The Heron is a state of the art toilet and bathing seat. The simple design and clean appearance conceal multiple functionality features that improve both the user and carer experience.

The Heron sets new standards for users with special needs for positioning. The seat is ergonomically correct, meaning it can be tilted and the back reclined without compromise for the user. Clever design means that during recline, the anatomical pivot point at the axis of the hips is maintained. This provides the user more comfort when seated.

The Heron can be used freestanding with a pan, directly over the toilet or as a bathing chair in the shower. The smooth height, tilt and recline functions ensure optimum working conditions for the carer. To maintain safety, the Heron is equipped with four lockable casters.

The Heron is delivered with a narrow backrest for freedom of movement. For added support and comfort, swing-away side supports or upholstered sides which support the shoulders, can be added. The Heron comes in one size.

Features

Feature
Easy adaptation of working conditions

The hydraulic height adjustment allows the Heron to adjust from 51 to 78 cm in height. Height adjustability eases transfer from/to the chair and provides optimum working conditions for the carer

Feature
Comfortable seating

Pressure mapping has been used in the design of Heron to minimise pressure and improve comfort for users even when the seat is used for extended periods of time

Feature
Optimum positioning

The Heron has easily accessible handles for the tilt-in-space and back recline functions which allows for optimum and stable positioning possibilities. The seat angles from -5° to 25° and the back from 0° to 30°

Feature
Fully supported while seated

Heron can be adapted to provide targeted postural support for the user whether minimal intervention or full support is required. Head support, multi adjustable hip supports, swing-away side supports, arm rests and tray are included in the comprehensive range of accessories
