We understand that everyone is different and that people have different needs when it comes to personal wheelchair preferences We also understand that individuals demand adaptability from their wheelchair – particularly in the seat and backrest areas. In order to maintain optimum balance and posture, we know that good seat tilt is essential, as is stability of the legs.
All these issues are accommodated in the Rea Clematis. The sturdy and appealing design guarantees the core benefits and long-term durability of this popular model.
Equipped with an angle-adjustable seat, the Rea Clematis provides the person with a range of possible positions. When the seat tilts, the pressure areas shift between the seat and backrest, all of which helps prevent pressure ulcers.
The Rea Clematis also boasts an angle-adjustable backrest, which opens up the hip angle for increased comfort. For improved positioning, this should be used in conjunction with the seat tilt to help stabilise posture and allow for other movements.
The presence of high pivot points around the pelvis and knee joints is important when adjusting body posture. Pivot points ensure that the body moves in tandem with the seat and legrests. The Rea Clematis is designed to minimise sheering and reduce body compression, resulting in improved overall posture. Crucially for individual comfort, the headrests and trunk support remain at the same height whether the backrest is angled or not.
