For patients with mobility issues and their carers, both toilet time and shower time are made so much easier with the addition of the Boston Wide Commode Chair from Rebotec. German design and craftsmanship result in a quality product that is both functional and stylish for what it is. Build quality is exceptional, allowing the 16.2kg chair to hold body weights of up to 150kg.
The chair is made mobile due to the fact this it is mounted on four sturdy 125mm caster wheels. Patients can be wheeled into the bathroom or shower with ease and the mobility of the commode chair also helps transport individuals from one space to another. The wheels have brakes to keep the chair in place when stationary.
This particular commode chair from Rebotec is actually a little wider than a standard commode chair, allowing enough room for larger patients, as well as less cramped conditions when the armrests are in play. Speaking of the armrests, they can be swung away or removed for easy side transfer to and from the chair. The same applies to the footrests. These also swing away or can be removed entirely if need be.
As a shower commode chair, the non-slip rubber wheels maintain a sure footing in wet conditions. The chair itself provides a supportive and stable platform while the patients bathes. For the toilet, the padded seat can be removed once the commode chair is positioned above the toilet bowl. There is also a pail that can be slid beneath the seat opening, so the chair can be utilised as a bedside commode chair as well.
While it’s a wider model of commode chair, the overall footprint of 62cm x 89cm is still compact enough to fit into most shower cubicles.
