If you’re working as a caretaker in a senior living or assisted living facility, then you’ve probably experienced the trials and errors that come with transporting residents from one place to another. Mealtimes and various leisurely activities often require scooting a resident’s chair from its pulled-out place into the table. But how do you safely transfer a resident with limited mobility from a wheelchair to a dining chair and then safely scoot that chair under the table without risking injury? That’s where the Comfor Tek Titan chairs come in handy.
Easy, Safe Transferring
The Comfor Tek Titan swivel chairs are equipped with mobility assistors that make moving an individual closer to a table as simple as can be. Just step on the mobility assistor underneath the seat, making pushing in the chair a breeze. Simply step on the assistor again and pull out when mealtime is over. When the assistor is not in use, the chair remains locked in place for reliable stability. The swivel action locks every 90 degrees to provide additional stability for residents who need to hold onto the chair arms when transferring in and out. Because of their simplicity, these chairs offer a dignified way for residents to be moved into and out of table spaces without drawing unwanted attention.
Not only are these chairs safe to use, but they’re also comfortable enough for residents to sit in for hours at a time. With a sturdy 800-pound weight capacity, each chair has a seat and back made from moisture-resistant, cold-cured foam that provides plenty of padding for support. The arms of the chair are outfitted with non-slip arm caps that are soft to the touch for additional stability and comfort.
These chairs are constructed with sturdy metal frame work and upholstered in easy-to-clean vinyl that resists stains and other damage. A cleanout space between the seat and back makes the chair even easier to clean, as crumbs and other materials are not able to get stuck between the seats. The mobility assistor not only reduces the risk of injury for staff and guests, but it also minimizes damage to carpets since chairs no longer need to be dragged across the floor. These seating options also include glides for use on wood floors and carpeted surfaces if needed.
