The flexibility of the Lynton Healthcare Chair lies in its complete adjustability to suit a variety of users needs without the need to stock or purchase different size seating. This rise recliner puts the healthcare team, in ultimate control, providing a full range of options to tailor the chair precisely for everyone’s comfort and care.

With a choice of Dual or Single Tilt in Space motors the Lynton Healthcare Chair is suitable for clients with changing and deteriorating neurological conditions and those who require assisted movement to reduce the problems of skin breakdown.

It comes with a range of pressure management seat cushion options or allows for you to fit your own pressure cushion. The interchangeable armrests allows for the width to be adjusted, and two adjustable seat depths.  The Lynton chair offers you the option to change the seat height, whilst also extending the legrest to achieve the support when reclined.

The Lynton Healthcare Chair is suitable for any health or homecare, as with its tailored design and simple fabric style, ensure’s the chair blends into all environments.

The Lynton has been specifically designed to assist Equipment store providers, Local authorities, Care Home and Distributors to maximise budgets to stretch further.

The Lynton Healthcare Chair is ideal for clients who require pressure and postural management whilst wanting to be supported to stand independently, such as:

  • Stroke
  • Muscular sclerosis
  • Frail elderly
  • Lower limb oedema

The Lynton Healthcare Chair can also be used as part of a 24-hour postural care programme and its features also ensure that a user can be repositioned to allow for optional occupational performance, thus allowing an individual to engage in activities they want to do.

The Tilt in Space (TIS) mechanisms make this chair ideal for clients with changing and deteriorating neurological conditions and those who require assisted movement to reduce the problems of skin breakdown. They allow for multi positioning of the legs to reduce oedema and fluid retention, leading to increased comfort. They can also be useful to those with low blood pressure to alter their position to reduce the impact of changes in pressure e.g. postural hypertension.

The chair can be used with either a mobile or overhead hoist to support safe moving and handling techniques for carers.

The Lynton comes with a range of key features to aid pressure management, postural control, and comfort. The key features listed below are standard, you can purchase additional features and these are detailed in the Optional Accessories Section.

Mechanisms

The Lynton is available with either a Dual Tilt in Space (DTIS) or a Single Tilt in Space (STIS) mechanism. The Tilt in Space (TIS) movement allows the seat to back angle to remain the same whilst the whole seating system is tilted backwards which prevents shearing and friction.

The Dual Tilt in Space mechanism has more positional movement options than the STIS one as it also has independent backrest recline and independent leg rest movement. This enables a greater range of positions to aid pressure management, postural control and comfort.

There is also the option of VAL Technology on both these mechanisms, but only on the medium and large sized chairs.

For further details on these mechanisms, with video clips, visit the Mechanism Section.

Pressure Management Back Cushions

For complete flexibility there is a choice of interchangeable and adjustable pressure management back cushions which enable the chair to be adapted from a single user’s changing needs or to adapt the chair to another user. This ensures greater longevity of its usage and provide cost saving, future proofing on tight budgets.

In addition, all cushions can be repositioned to suit a user’s individual seating preferences and fibres added or removed from fibre filled cushions to adjust the preferred comfort. Covers can also be removed for cleaning or replacement. See Back Cushion Section for details on the individual cushions.

Special Maintenance

The Lynton allows for easy service and maintenance even when you find the chair has been accidentally damaged. The easy to remove arms, arms top and wings allow for you to order replacements and to replace any damaged parts on site to avoid the chair being out of service for long period of time.

Special Maintenance

Delivery Installation

The Lynton has the unique feature which allows for the chair to be completely dismantled.

The breakdown of the chair will ensure that anyone piece is no more than 25kg enabling for a one-man delivery process.

Delivery and installation costs can be kept to a minimum.

25kg Single Person Carry Exploded View

The following features can be purchased to enhance the functionality of the chair.

Seat Depth Adjustment Pad

The Lynton has two additional seat depth adjuster pads available to purchase to give you even more flexibility to adjust the chair. These can be used to achieve further adjustments by using them to alter the seat depth with a choice of two sets of detachable adjuster pads, 25.4mm (1")or 50.8mm (2"). The below Seat depth chart shows the flexibility available.

The seat depth should be long enough to support the upper part of the legs whilst allowing the back to rest comfortably on the backrest. If the seat is too long the user is likely to slouch in the chair to get their feet
on the floor, which puts extra pressure on their lower spine, if too short it will cause additional pressure on the thighs risking potential skin breakdown.

  • Depending on the seat cushion built into the chair the seat height may vary slightly from shown above. Due to the pressure care components used for each cushion, this will compress under the weight distribution of the user.

There is a choice of four interchangeable pressure management back cushions each with different features that enable the chair to be adapted to a single user’s changing needs or to adapt the chair to another user. This ensures greater longevity of its usage.

In addition, all cushions can be repositioned to suit a user’s individual seating preferences and allows for the fibre to be added or removed from fibre filled cushions to adjust the firmness. Covers can also be removed for cleaning.

The most important aspect to consider before purchasing the Lynton chair are the seating positions that are required to aid the conditions of the client and address any pressure and postural management needs.

The Lynton is available with either a Dual Tilt in Space (DTIS) or Single Tilt in Space (STIS) mechanism.

For demonstrations of the mechanisms described below please watch the relevant videosbelow.


Dual and Single Tilt in Space
DTIS and STIS (Common features)

The Tilt in Space movement features on both these mechanisms. It allows the seat to back angle to remain the same whilst the whole seating system is tilted backwards. This ensures that the angle of the hips, knees and ankles remain unaffected and the weight on the Ischial Tuberosities is reduced by redistributing the weight through the back. This constant angle also prevents shear and friction during movement.

This feature can also help when transferring someone in a sling as it can support better pelvic positioning by using gravity to position the user in the back of the chair in the optimal position.

Both these mechanisms have a rise position. As the chair rises the seat tilts forward slightly, transferring the weight to the knees whilst taking away the pressure from your hips thus allowing you to walk away more easily from the chair. The seat angle can be changed to provide further support by choosing the VAL Technology.

Dual Tilt In Space

Mutli C Air Dtis

Single Tilt In Space

Multi C Air Stis


DTIS (Only)

As well as the Tilt in Space and Rise functions, described above, the Dual Tilt in Space mechanism also features an independent backrest recline and independent leg rest movement:

  • The independent recline allows the user to maintain flexibility over their body’s position, particularly the amount of hip flexion, enabling them to maximise comfort as well as managing health needs.
  • The independent leg rest offers the user additional flexibility over positioning, allowing them to either use it in conjunction with the recline feature to create the optimal posture for their body shape.

VAL Technology

An optional mechanism can be fitted under the chair that allows the rise angle to be set to support individuals to a standing position. Choose from three positions 10º, 20º or 30º. The higher the angle the lower the front of the chair becomes, providing more support when moving from a sitting to a standing position. A simple pin system allows you to set the angle required.
