Mechanisms

The Stamford is available with either a Single Tilt in Space (STIS) mechanism with a rise and recline or a rise only mechanism.  The recline only model comes in either an electric or manual version whilst the rise and recline model is electric.

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.

When the seat is in the rise position it tilts transferring the user’s weight to their knees and taking away the pressure on the hips allowing them to walk away from the chair more easily.

For further details on this mechanism, with video clips, visit the Mechanisms Section.

Contoured Back

The contoured backrest is designed to maximise comfort through postural support.  The shape of the backrest mirrors that of the spine providing support where it is most required.  This allows muscles and connective tissue to relax whilst being held in a natural anatomical position therefore reducing effort, pain and discomfort.

choose which one is most suitable for your client range and purpose and then it is fixed to the frame.

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

The Stamford is available with either an electric Single Tilt in Space with rise movement or a recline only mechanism available in an electric or manual model.  Please check the Sizes Section for all user weights and dimensions before selecting your chair.  For demonstrations of the mechanisms described below please watch the relevant videos.

If you would like to find out about what mechanisms are available on other healthcare chairs from the Repose range please see the comparison chart below.


Single Tilt in Space Recline only

There is a manual and electric model in this mechanism. The Tilt in Space movement 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.

Stamford Tis Recline Only


Single Tilt in Space

This mechanism, electric version only, has the same Tilt in Space movement as the recline only model but also has:

A rise position to aid standing from a seated 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.
