Patented Innovation: Effortless at the Push of a Button.
Arm-rests are comfortable when sitting and lying down. When moving the patient from the seat, however, they are a hindrance for the nursing staff. That is why torras features a patented innovation: the arm-rests can be lowered at the push of a button, safely and conveniently.
They then form one level with the upper surface of the upholstery, opening the chair to the side. This clearly facilitates moving a person in need of care from a wheelchair to torras, and vice versa. The operating button is directly located in the visible area, within easy reach. An anti-pinching distance between frame and arm-rest prevents hurt or injury. The moving mechanism is slowed down, so that the arm-rest’s downward movement takes place in a controlled manner.
In order to fold up the arm-rest, it is simply pulled up. It automatically and safely locks in place in the topmost position.
Separate Functions, Synchronous Operation.
Thanks to the fact that back and leg support can be adjusted separately, torras can be brought into any desired seating and lying position. For example, even in an upright sitting position, the legs can be conveniently put up – in any knee bending angle between 90° and 0°. A completely horizontal lying posture can also be attained. Particularly useful: the push buttons located underneath the right and left arm-rests for activating back and leg support, respectively, can be used simultaneously. So the optimum position can be found quickly and easily and can be varied conveniently at any time.
The back can be adjusted continuously: from an upright sitting position all the way down to the lying posture. The changing seat angle optimizes seating comfort.
The leg support not only folds up but also extends to the front, so that even the feet can be fully supported.
Easy Movement when Sitting and Lying Down.
In combination with the large castor wheels, an extendable footrest can be added underneath the seat. So one can place one’s feet there for relaxing while sitting upright. Particularly useful: the version featuring side panels with integrated cloth pockets. There, medication, glasses or a book can be stowed within easy reach of the patient, giving him or her a little more independence while making things a bit easier for the nursing staff.
The health and care sector has very high demands when it comes to hygiene. That’s why torras is available in a special edition with detachable and washable covers. Depending on the model, selected fabrics are available. As a standard, all the fabrics from the Brunner house collection may be chosen. Thanks to the comprehensive color choices, a pleasant and cozy atmosphere can be created, which increases the feeling of well-being. By means of an armature with an excentric grip, even an infusion support can be fastened to the frame quickly and securely – even later.
