The Configura Bariatric is a seating technology specifically designed for bariatric use, offering excellent adjustability, flexibility, and convenience for prescribers. It comes equipped with a full-width alternating air cushion, which is ideal for users who are at high risk of pressure damage. Among its features are easy adjustability for varying and changing needs, washable covers that can be removed for recycling, and affordability that helps with consistent budget management and significant savings on special chairs. The Dual Motor operation allows independent adjustment of the leg rest elevation and backrest recline, while Tilt-in-Space (with independent leg rest) improves pelvic stability, posture, pressure distribution, circulation, and makes hoisting easier, reducing the tendency to slip forward in the chair. Additionally, the Configura Bariatric range enables trouble-free selection of the chair width through removable armrests, allowing for three different widths within the same chair. Supportive armrests are included for easy transfers, and the seat base and backrest are made of breathable and wipeable fabric.
The Configura Bariatric is available in two models, Standard and Tilt-in-Space. Please select the appropriate model when ordering.
Note that the Configura Bariatric 317 kg Dual Motor (SKU CR5420) is a special order item, and production time is estimated at 12-16 weeks. Please contact our Customer Service team for assistance with your order and an accurate delivery time.
