Seating Matters Bariatric Sorrento Chair


The Bariatric Sorrento™ was designed to help seat bariatric patients by using improved postural support and repositioning, while reducing the risk of injury to the patient and staff alike.  The Bariatric Sorrento™ is the world’s only tilt in space bariatric chair on wheels.

The Bariatric Sorrento chair  takes into consideration the weight of the client, the body proportions, physical dimensions, range of movement, mobility and transfers. The needs of the caregiver should also be incorporated into the design of the chair.

With its adaptability and effortless adjustment, the Bariatric Sorrento™ can be adjusted to suit the changing needs of a user or readjusted to suit the needs of a new user meaning their comfort, posture and pressure management remain uncompromised.  With that in mind, the Bariatric Sorrento™ lends itself easily to multi-user environments.  Removable arms can assist with side transferring or sling application and removal.

It is used widely in hospitals and rehabilitation units.

Powered tilt in space and back angle recline can be used to improve posture, comfort and to redistribute pressure. This can also be converted to include forward tilt for rehabilitation or in self transferring situations.  The adjustable back angle recline on this bariatric chair will accommodate users with reduced hip flexion and when used in combination with tilt in space, can prevent sliding from the chair.  The features are controlled by powered adjustment which facilitates effortless adjustment by the client or carer.
