These are a type of commode shower chair that's capable of performing a tilt in space (TiS) movement. TiS is an action/movement on a shower chair that physically tilts the person backwards without changing their position while showering. The chair maintains the angle of the hips, knees, and ankles to keep them in the same position when tilted.
They can provide a comfortable seating position for the person, enabling them to shower safely and securely. They can also assist carers with patient transfers.
Someone who needs help to maintain a posture when showering, for example, who has poor muscle tone, less trunk and head control, difficulty standing or keeping their balance, weak legs or lower limb disability may benefit from this product.
Consider who will be using the chair and check that the measurements of the chair will be suitable for the size of the person using it. Also consider if do they need a tilt in space feature, what other features you would like the chair to have: manual or powered; with a pan holder and lid or without; what additional support you might need such as head support; does the headrest (if needed) and footrest adjust to the measurements required.
