AtlantaTM

The Atlanta has been carefully crafted for safety and security and is our very best in falls prevention. A robust and durable chair provides a safe and comfortable seat for those with vigorous involuntary movements while reducing the risk of falling from the chair.

The Atlanta can be a helpful aid to comfortably accommodate individuals who may be challenging to seat, designed originally for patients suffering from Huntington’s disease and has become widely used for patients with late stage Dementia. The Atlanta has been designed with strength and stability to withstand rigorous use.

Request

The Atlanta has been successfully used in the management of lower limb oedema.  The variable angle leg rest used in combination with the integrated tilt and recline helps to elevate the feet higher than the heart which is the optimum position for fluid drainage.  Individuals with tight hamstrings and contracted legs can often be accommodated due to the negative angle clearance underneath the seat which allows the feet to retract behind the knee without compromising the person’s position in the chair.
