Introducing the OSKA® Regis Chair
The ultimate rise and recline chair.
For years the care industry has needed a chair that can offer extreme patient comfort and pressure relief whilst being easy to manoeuvre for care staff.
Combining postural support and pressure management, the OSKA Regis brings the ultimate solution for reducing pressure and shear forces.
In normal upright sitting, 50% of body weight is supported on only 8% body area. This leads to high interface pressure. Pressure is exerted as shown below: (Staas and Cioschi 1991)
75% through buttocks and thighs
19% through feet
4% through back
2% through arms
Excellent pressure relief
Interchangeable seat cushion
Easily replace the cushion for an alternative air cushion without changing the dimensions of the chair.
Reduces shear force by keeping the angle of the hips, knees and ankles in one position meaning the patient doesn’t move.
Sitting upright is important to reduce pressure damage and help with breathing, circulation, digestion, spine and back.
Features and benefits
Easy to manoeuvre
The Regis comes with large casters to enable care staff to easily transport the patient to their favourite areas in your care environment.
Removable arm available
Removable arm option which enables side transfers out of the chair with minimal difficulty. Available on left hand, right hand or both.
Choice of back cushion
Choose from either the lateral or waterfall back cushion. The lateral cushion gives more support to the patients torso.
Head support options
