The Melrose has been specifically engineered to meet the needs of semi-ambulant and non-ambulant users, addressing pressure management issues and providing adaptable support neurological and postural conditions.
The Melrose provides carers with a number of options to enable regular re-positioning of users to redistribute pressure and support pressure care management:
* An in-built tilt-in-space movement is operated from the push handle allowing the chair to be gently reclined in a range of positions maintaining a constant back angle.
* The backrest and legrest can be separately adjusted providing a further range of back and leg angle combinations to support improved posture and pressure management. Couple this to the angle and height adjustable footplates and this makes the Melrose Repose's most versatile pressure management porter chair.
As with our other healthcare chairs the Melrose can be fitted quickly to each individual user and there are a range of specialist back cushions and pressure management seat cushions to choose from to meet specific support challenges.
The Melrose combines Tilt-in-Space, Independent Recline, Independent legrest, footplate and seat depth actions with a range of seat and back cushion options to offer an extensive range of postural and pressure management positions.
Using the left hand lever on the push handle the chair can be gently reclined in a range of positions maintaining a constant back angle. The back locks into position when the lever is released. The push handle comes with rubber grips.
Independent Backrest Recline
Using the right hand lever on the push handle the backrest can be reclined independently providing a range of back angles. The back locks into position whenever the lever is released. Enhanced posture and pressure management options are available by combining this movement with the leg rest and footplate adjustment.
Independent Legrest Movement
The legrest angle can be changed independently of the backrest and footplate movements to provide additional posture and pressure management options. Simply pull the lever on the side of the chair and this will release the legrest so that you can adjust to the required angle for the users comfort, including a negative legrest angle. The leg rest locks when the lever is raised. The legrest is contoured, with padding on either side to support the legs splaying over the side.
The Melrose has a choice of adjustable footplates that further extend the range of posture and pressure management options, particularly when combined with the legrest and backrest movements.
Seat Depth Movement
The Seat Depth can be adjusted by using a simple mechanism under the seat.
Seat Width Adjustment
The seat width can be adjusted by removing and interchanging the arm pads to fit the seat to the user. There are two sizes of arm pads that allow the seat depth to be adjusted. Please note which ones are standard on each of the medium and small chairs. You then have the option of purchasing the other size as an additional seat.
Interchangeable Back Cushions
The interchangeable back cushions can be replaced with five other back options designed to meet a range of needs.
Interchangeable Seat Cushions
Seat and back cushions are upholstered in a four-way stretch, vapour permeable fabric to aid pressure care. The fabric is washable at 95 degrees and available in a range of colours. Choose from a range of interchangeable pressure seat cushion options to meet the specific needs of the user.
Lap Strap & Pad
D-Rings are fitted as standard. They enable the lap strap to be connected. Please note that the strap is for safe transportation of people in the chair only. It is not a pelvic positioner and it should never be used for restraining a user.
The contoured legrest is padded down the sides providing a channel to support the legs from splaying over the sides of the rest.
The Melrose comes with heavy duty castors, lockable at the rear.
All of the covers are quickly removable for ease of cleaning and change. Replacement covers are available for all of these removable covers.
