Careflex Hydrocare
˝The CareFlex Nursing Chair.ţ

The HydroCare is a supportive and adaptable nursing chair that incorporates a wide range of
features to optimise the seating experience of its occupants.
These features include back angle recline and integral pressure management in the seat as
standard. The seat width, height and angle are tailored to suit each individual client whilst
seat depth can easily be adjusted when required. In addition, the HydroCare can be tailored
further through a comprehensive range of accessories to ensure a correct sitting posture is achieved.

Select the best back for comfort and support

Flat and Contoured Back

The Flat and Contoured backs are based on foam structured cushions. Both have a mid-lumbar
change of angle to fully support the back and encourage a comfortable and relaxed sitting posture
when the chair is semi-reclined. The foam used is a ´Reflex═ grade for comfort and
durability, they have a fibre face for initial softness.

The Contoured Back has additional lateral support in the lumbar area through additional foam
shapes which provide basic lateral support.

Waterfall Back

The three part waterfall back consists of fibre filled pillows which overlap down the back of the
chair to provide a very soft, conforming back support. The top pillow provides support to
the head and shoulders with a curved bottom edge to mould naturally to the clients back.
The smaller cushions in the lumbar area provide support for the lower back.

The cushions can be removed individually and attach to the same Velcro strips on the back board
as the foam structured cushions.
