Description

We deliver all Tilt in Space wheelchairs ourselves with our own technicians carrying out a home setup and demonstration. Due to the advanced nature of the chair, and the variety of delivery options available, you will need to call our customer services team on 0800 0258 005 to place an order.

Our Bariatric Tilt in Space wheelchair is designed to accommodate heavier and wider people who need to spend long periods of time in a wheelchair. It has an enhanced weight capacity of 28 stone, and can be supplied in seat widths of 22 - 26 inches. The Rea Azalea Max wheelchair can be tilted and reclined to aid in pressure distribution and comfort, while the cushioning ensures that the chair is comfortable to use for lengthy periods of time and that it adequately supports the posture of the person using it.

This wheelchair is commonly hired for people in rehabilitation units and care homes, for patients who have had strokes, brain injuries or have dementia, or who are undergoing palliative care. It is designed to accommodate people who need to spend much of the day in a wheelchair, and who have limited ability to adjust their position, and many users of tilt in space wheelchairs will sleep in them during the day.

The Invacare Rea Azalea Max is the Bariatric Tilt in Space wheelchair we provide, which features a weight capacity of 28 stone, allowing it to take much heavier patients than our standard Tilt in Space wheelchair. The Rea Azalea range is the one most commonly used across the NHS within the UK, and so is the model that healthcare and care home staff will be most familiar with it. The seat width can be adjusted between 22 - 26 inches - this allows it to provide a perfect fit to the person using it, enhancing the comfort and support. Other adjustments can be made, including seat depth, headrest positioning, leg rest length and angle, and several more. Our specialists will make these adjustments when delivering the chair, to ensure it fits the person who is using it.

The Bariatric Tilt in Space wheelchair can be reclined from 0° - 30°, and the seat can be tilted back to 25° - these assist with both comfort, posture and pressure, as well as helping with transfer into and out of the wheelchair. The elevating leg rests are fully adjustable, allowing them to be set up exactly to the needs of the wheelchair user. The footplate comes with a removable mid-section to further assist with transfers.

Additional support can be provided by two lateral supports (not pictured), which are positioned on either side of the seat just below shoulder height. A three-wing adjustable headrest comes as standard, which provides support to both the back and sides of the head.

For those needing more advanced pressure care, the standard seat cushion can be easily removed, allowing a pressure cushion to be fitted instead. We offer a large selection of clinical pressure cushions for purchase, including the market-leading Jay and Matrx ranges, for purchase.

The chair comes with transit wheels, and is designed to be pushed and operated by an attendant. The Rea Azalea Max is fully crash tested, making it suitable for occupied transportation in a suitably adapted vehicle.

As well as hiring, we are able to offer the Rea Azalea Max for purchase as a new product - being a configurable wheelchair, a wide range of further options are also available, which our product specialists will be able to advise you on. Specialist consultations can also be arranged, including our Occupational Therapist Assessment Service for those with high level clinical or postural requirements.
