Bariatric Self Propelled Wheeled Shower Commode Chair - Standard Armrest 24" Seat
Availability: Out of stock
This stainless steel commode can be used as a shower chair, a commode or over the toilet and has self-propelled wheels for the more independent user. The chair is extra wide, strongly built and the design takes into account the physical dimensions and levels of comfort required by larger individuals. Available in two seat widths; 610mm (24") and 710mm (28") with the added option of Butterfly armrests that add an extra 100mm (4") to the seating width, which means that the body doesn't get squeezed getting in to and out of the chair.

The extra-long, angled armrests are removable to allow easy access for washing or transferring. The chair has a comfortable padded, split seat that is both waterproof and anti-bacterial.
The space between the padded backrest and the seat is 320mm (12½"), this provides the carer with room to manoeuvre the patient into the correct position.
