Designed for easy storage, the Compact 2 folds neatly in half and can be stored in the smallest of areas. The chair unfolds in one swift movement for immediate use. To enhance patient security, the design incorporates safety rings which slide down over the folding mechanism. During carrying or lifting the unique style lifting loops encourage the user to adopt a secure grip. The footbar allows patients to sit in a comfortable position during transfer and the one-piece seat and back panel provides support to the lower back. Made in wipe clean, vinyl coated, flame retardant nylon, the panel may be removed for cleaning or replacement.
