Redman Power Chair Standing Tilt Technology vs Traditional Tilt in Space
The Medicare review board has determined that the Redman Standing Power Chair has “tilt in space” functionality, a feature with crucial health benefits covered by them, but the Redman Power Chair has so much more. You know that the features in the Redman Power Chair are what sets it apart from its competition, the chair comes equipped with a plethora of features STANDARD and has numerous additional options to choose from, but one standard option has benefits that even insurance companies recognize as important, tilt in space. In order to determine if this is a good fit for you, you might ask yourself what is a tilt in space functionality? Why do I need it, and how does traditional tilt differ from what the Redman Power Chair can do?
Tilt in space is a technology on some power chairs and wheelchairs that rotates the chair on its base so that pressure is redistributed from one area of the body to another while maintaining the angles the body is in. It can be an excellent means of increasing skin perfusion by relieving pressure and allowing weight to be distributed in different areas of the body, reducing the risk of postural collapse, and increasing lung capacity. But because the body stays in the same position, the user is unable to get the full benefit of stretching, reclining, and even tilting while standing, all standard features of the Redman Power Chair. Traditional tilt does not truly reposition your body, it only changes your place in space.
Not only does the Redman Power Chair have tilt in space technology, but it offers standing tilt and weight-bearing tilt features that deliver even more benefits to its users among other features and specifications. Weight-bearing tilts slow down the progression of osteoporosis by allotting pressure to different joints and bones on the body. Standing tilt allows the power chair user to stretch their body in a way traditional tilt does not allow. Rather than simply changing angles and redistributing pressure, the ligaments are stretched and weight is shifted off the rear-end and onto the feet. This also allows blood flow where it can’t otherwise when confined to the seated position.
Being seated in a wheelchair or powerchair for endless hours weakens your spine, and the lack of function in the legs in most cases causes foot pronation. Having the ability to shift your weight off of your back and button allows you to stretch the heel cords to prevent possible deformities. If that wasn’t enough, when you are able to recline, the mid-section opens up and the bladder and bowels function better as gravity does its job proving the worth of these features over traditional tilt.
The benefits are endless; improved posture and lung capacity, fewer risks, and overall relief for your body. When you can reposition and stretch your body, you reduce the risk of sliding and slumping without restraints, you regain posture, and your better body function. With the Redman Power Chair, you are able to tilt, stretch, recline, and stand independently and with ease.
