The Sorrento lends itself easily to changing user needs in multi-user environments and is above all else the ultimate in user comfort.
With its adaptability and effortless adjustability, the Sorrento is a simple to operate and functional chair which is designed to improve and maximise comfort as well as provide postural support and pressure management. The Sorrento tilt in space chair is clinically designed for the patient but has the caregiver in mind with ease of use designed into the chair.
Used widely in hospitals and rehabilitation units, the Sorrento provides comfort, support, security and long term benefit to the user. The chair has been designed to reduce pressure, prevent sliding and falls from the chair and encourage early mobilization for patients who spend the majority of their time in bed.
Tilt in space can be used to improve posture and redistribute pressure. This can also be converted to include forward tilt for rehabilitation or in self transferring situations. The adjustable back recline will accommodate users with limited hip flexion and when used in combination with tilt in space it can prevent sliding from the chair.
Optional lateral supports and supportive pillows can help to maintain or improve posture and facilitate functional ability in activities of daily living such as eating and communicating. The correct use of these features and clinical accessories can also reduce common problems such as falling to the side when seated.
