Traditional Thera-Glide® Auto Locking Glider

Therapeutic Rocking Without the Risk of Falls.

The Thera-Glide® Auto Locking Glider provides a relaxing gliding motion that eases tension and anxiety while its patented automatic-locking system reduces the risk of falls.  It is a stationary chair until you are safely seated, then the lock automatically releases allowing for a soothing glide motion.  When you exit the chair, the locks automatically for a steady safe egress.

Additionally, the Thera-Glide’s® adjustable seat height uniquely adapts to different users while its automatic infinite locking system secures the chair locks precisely at the best angle for an individual’s safe exit.

The Thera-Glide® features a lock-out lever located at the back of the chair that can be turned to disable the glide motion and create a stationary chair. The chair can be locked in an angled position to fashion a wedge seat to manage slumping and sliding.   The Thera-Glide® is the ideal replacement for traditional glider rockers in long term care settings.  Read: The Benefits of Rocking

Description

The Thera-Glide® Safety Glider provides a relaxing gliding motion that eases tension and anxiety.  Its patented (Patent: US 6406095B1, CAN 2323398) automatic-locking system reduces the risk of falls.  The Thera-Glide® is a stationary chair until you are safely seated, then the lock automatically releases, allowing for a soothing glide motion.  When you exit the chair, the lock automatically engages again for a steady safe egress…it’s like getting into and out of a stationary chair. Now anyone can enjoy the benefits of a rocking chair without the risks.  Whether in a home, assisted living, nursing facility or hospital labor and delivery, the Thera-Glide® auto locking glider is a meaningful addition to a Fall Prevention Program.

Thera-Glide® auto lock gliders are built to last and will withstand the rigors of today’s busy healthcare facilities.

The attractive styling of the Thera-Glide’s® exterior hides an inner structure of strength and durability.  The seat back, seat deck, undercarriage, and moving parts within are made of steel for years of trouble free service.  Even the precision glide bearings are warrantied for the life of the chair.  The steel frame of the Thera-Glide® auto locking glider is height adjustable allowing nursing homes to tailor the glider to an individual resident’s needs.

The Thera-Glide® Safety Glider is covered in easy to clean, moisture impermeable healthcare grade vinyl ideal for nursing homes and hospital settings.  We also offer specialty vinyls and Cryptons to match any Decor.  All cushions on the auto locking Thera-Glide® are removable for deep cleaning and every component of this healthcare grade glider/rocker is replaceable.  The Thera-Glide’s® steel frame comes with a lifetime warranty.

“The Thera-Glide rockers are providing our residents with a safe seating option. It also allows them to remain independent with sitting and standing safely. Staff is also able to safely assist those residents who need help and both residents and staff are at a reduced risk for injury.”
