The Evolution Mobility Chair increases autonomy while reducing the risk of falls for wheelchair users in skilled nursing settings.  The Evolution Mobility Wheelchair features easy to reach center mounted wheelchair wheels, an adjustable seat height, and adjustable seat depth making the Evolution easy to maneuver and propel with one’s arms, feet, or both.  Mobility wheels are located directly under the users hands to promote self-mobility even for individuals with diminished arm strength and rotator range of motion. The seat and back tilt to reduce sliding and slumping while contoured cushions evenly distribute weight for better comfort and pressure management during long periods of sitting.

The combination of adjustable seat height, seat depth, and tilt can be used reduce wheelchair falls without the use of restraints..  An array of features including adjustable armrest height, seat depth, and tilt/recline angle along with optional positioning accessories make it possible to create proper positioning while providing comfortable and safe independent mobility while reducing wheelchair falls.

Evolution Mobility Wheelchairs come stocked with easy to clean healthcare grade vinyl.  All parts on the Evolution Chair are easily replaceable allowing each chair to provide years and years of reliable service.

A pressure redistributing cushion now comes standard on all Evolution Mobility Wheelchairs.  The updated multilayered cushion consists of four layers with varying densities and composition to address a multitude of issues associated with longer bouts of sitting including heat, moisture, pressure and sheer.  Adding comfort and improving autonomy can reduce agitation and reduce wheelchair falls.

Most Evolution Chairs are ordered with the SA-15 Foot Supports.  If the Evolution Mobility Chair will ever be used as a transport chair foot supports are necessary.  The Self Storing, Swing Away Foot Supports tuck neatly and discretely to the inside of the chair.  No more removing foot supports only to misplace them and not have them handy when needed.

“The Optima chairs are amazing. The residents sit so comfortably in them, and they have really helped reduced our fall rates.  We started using a chair on 1 resident who was a frequent faller from her chair, her falls reduced so much we decided to purchase another.  The results in the reduction of falls again was amazing.  The chair is not a restraint the resident can still get out of the chair, they just are so comfortable they don’t attempt to get out.  We now have 4 chairs in our facility and have just ordered another.  I would certainly recommend giving Optima chairs a try.” D.O.N. – Alexandria, MN
