Reduce Falls, Increase Independent Mobility
Designed to reduce the risk of falls for wheelchair users in long term care settings who propel themselves with their feet, the Evolution Mobility Chair safely and comfortably facilitates independent mobility, improved positioning, and enhances comfort.
Adjustable for Proper Fit & Comfort
The Evolution Mobility Chair adjusts from a low seat height of 16 inches to 21 inches. Together with the adjustable seat depth, the chair can be individually fit to allow ones feet to safely reach the floor for a better heel strike and efficient propulsion. The tilting back and seat helps reduce sliding and slumping. Contoured seat cushions and back cushions evenly distribute weight for improved comfort and pressure management during longer seating periods making the Evolution Mobility Chair a welcome addition to nursing home fall prevention programs.
The combination of adjustable seat depth, seat height, and tilt can be used as a restraint free wheelchair fall intervention. An array of features including adjustable armrests, seat depth, and recline/tilt angle along with optional positioning accessories allow for proper positioning while providing comfortable and safe independent mobility while reducing wheelchair falls.
Comfort & Support
A pressure redistributing cushion is now standard on all Evolution Chairs. The updated multilayered cushion has four layers of healthcare grade foam each with varying densities and composition to address a range of issues associated with longer bouts of sitting including heat, moisture, pressure and sheer. Providing comfort and increasing autonomy eases agitation and in turn can prevent wheelchair falls and is a great alternative to a geri chair.
Most Evolution Chairs are ordered with the SA-15 Self Storing, Swing Away Foot Supports. If the Evolution Mobility Chair will ever be used as a transport chair in additional to a pedal wheelchair, foot supports are necessary. The Foot Supports fold neatly and discretely to the outside of the chair. No more removing foot supports only to misplace them and not have them handy when needed.
Easy to Clean & Maintain
Evolution Mobility Chairs come equipped with easy to clean and maintain vinyl designed for healthcare applications. All components of the Evolution Mobility Chair are easily replaceable ensuring the Evolution will provide comfort, reduce agitation, and safely encourage independent mobility for the life of the chair.
Cleanable Healthcare Vinyl
“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
