Harlem Porter

Designed by Repose for the daily comfort and care of Huntington’s

Every aspect of the Harlem Porter has been engineered to provide a comforting feeling of safety and security, from the high arm design to the wheeled footplate, to the robust construction; each element of the design is tailored to support conditions associated with severe or involuntary movement.

Key features:

  • Independent back rest recline - adjusted from a lever on the push handle the back can be reclined in a range of restful positions, 95 to 120 degree range.
  • Seat angle adjustment - with a range of 15 degrees, for comfort and to reduce the risk of an individual falling out of the chair due to severe involuntary movements.
  • Seat depth adjustment - changeable seat depth to fit the chair to the client using the lever on the back of the chair.
  • Sliding footplate with a central castor that provides for maximum stability.
  • A choice of four removable pressure management seat cushions.
  • A choice of six removable and interchangeable back cushion styles for different, and changing, postural needs.
  • Optional leg block.
