Saros Specialist Chair

Saros tilt-in-space postural management seating solution.

Product Overview

The Saros chair provides a comfortable chair on wheels that is adaptable for different patient sizes and users that require pressure relief or additional support to sit with a good posture.

The Saros has a number of different functions including tilt-in-space, a movement which redistributes pressure on the body thus reducing the likelihood of pressure sores, and helps to keep the user sitting with their pelvis at the back of the seat and preventing slipping or slump. There is also an optional adjustable leg rest to elevate the users’ legs and an adjustable angled backrest to allow for different hip flexion positions.

When a user may be sitting for extended periods of time, keeping pressure sores at bay, or helping to heal an existing sore, is paramount for everyone involved. The seat cushion can be changed for different pressure requirements starting with a medium risk visco-elastic cushion, designed to prevent pressure sore occurrence. This can be upgraded to a gel seat or even an alternating air cushion depending on the patients’ level of risk.

The adaptable back cushions on the chair provide extremely high levels of comfort and are also designed to accommodate patients with spinal curvature or bring in support where there may be muscle weakness. These cushions can be moved or adapted at a later date to continue supporting a user whose needs may be changing on a daily/weekly basis.

Please note – the footrests shown in the images are optional accessories.
