Human Care’s Convertible Chair is a no-lifting multi-functional device that helps caregivers to more efficiently and effectively perform their safe patient handling practices, such as transfers, repositioning, transport and early mobilization of patients that may help to reduce the patient length of stay, improve patient satisfaction, safety and dignity, and reduce work-related injuries.
- Ideal for transferring patients for early mobilization
- Unlimited positioning capabilities
- Ideal for multiple care settings from post-acute to home
The H-250 Convertible Chair is a unique device that easily converts from a stretcher to an upright mobile chair in seconds. It is the first step to early patient mobilization, providing a no-lift solution for moving, repositioning and transferring patients safely and effectively.
The H-250 features Tilt-in-Space capability that allows for unlimited repositioning. Patient transfer and repositioning is key to early mobilization and increased blood circulation to prevent complications associated with compromised mobility. The H-250 chair can be equipped with a Patient Transfer System (PTS) to offer transfers between a bed and a chair with ease by a single caregiver without risk of injury to the patient or caregiver. The H-250 can also be used with other traditional SPH transfer techniques like slide sheets or air-assisted devices.
- Unlimited repositioning capabilities
- Central brakes and steer locking functions
- Ideal for acute care setting
The I-400 chair is a safe and comfortable device ideal for acute care settings, although it can just as easily function in a home care or nursing facility setting. It is a key element in early patient mobilization with the added benefits of caregiver safety. Its Tilt-in-Space capability is ideal for various complications, such as pressure ulcers, experienced by patients with compromised mobility.
The I-400 enables lateral transfer in a supine position safely and easily which builds confidence in both the patient and the caregiver. Its portability allows usage in multiple rooms in a department and the ability to utilize the Patient Transfer System (PTS) simplifies the transfer of patients from a bed to a chair in addition to helping protect the caregiver from injury.
- Ideal for more robust users
- Central brakes and steer locking functions
- Driving force for SPH initiatives
The I-700 chair offers an unlimited number of reclined and tilt positions making it the ideal device for early patient mobilization in an acute or post-acute setting. Its higher weight capacity allows easy transfer, repositioning, and transport of even a more robust patient. The I-700 chair will not only support existing safe patient handling initiatives but also be incremental in initiating them in higher risk departments.
Frequent repositioning and early mobilization with the I-700 is key in reducing the average length of stay in the hospital for any given episode of care. The I-700 chair can easily be utilized for multiple patient rooms and is an ideal device for patients in departments that require getting the patient into rehab or step down units.
Easy transfer performed by an individual healthcare providers – Patient Transfer System
The duties to caregivers as well as the risk of musculoskeletal injuries have progressively increased as a result of the constant demand of moving and repositioning patients regardless of their size and/or weight.
By using our PTS system (Patient Transfer System) unnecessary lifting and risk of injury to caregivers is minimized. Our Patient Transfer System (PTS) works together with our convertible chairs to offer a multitude of positioning capabilities within a single product.
Designed to allow a single caregiver to easily and safely transport and reposition a patient, our chairs can perform the functions of a stretcher, mobile chair, and custom seating.
Transfer and reposition heavy users – an increasing problem.
Obesity is a globally growing problem. Obesity in the United States has been increasingly cited as a major health issue in recent decades. While many industrialized countries have experienced similar increases, obesity rates in the United States are among the highest in the world. One out of every three Americans is now considered to be obese. During the early 21st century, America often contained the highest percentage of obese people in the world.
This means that the knowledge of tool users and understanding about appropriate products increases. Human Care‘s product range of transport chairs are an excellent example of suitable products for heavy users. The range has a maximum user weight up to 317 kg/700 lbs.
