Invacare Mariner Rehab Shower Chair comes with a commode seat for tolieting and bathing. It serves as a self-propelled wheelchair and transport chair in the home for mobility patients. It offers patient transport from the toilet to the shower without having to lift or place the patient down several times a day. Patients may also self transport to a roll-in shower or to a toilet that meets height requirements. This wheelchair comes in two options--16 inch wide seat (Invacare 6795) or an 18 inch wide seat (Invacare 6895).
Transporting patients from the toilet to the shower is often difficult. This difficulty is especially true for medical facilities, such as hospitals or care centers. This wheelchair comes with a lightweight aluminum frame and stainless steel hardware to prevent rust and corrosion, making it ideal for the bathroom. The dual handles come standard on the back of the chair to allow caregiver assistance to push a person from one place to another. The armrests are both padded and able to be flipped back, allowing for a more comfortable ride and easier engress and egress. The commode seat is shaped for toileting and bathing access. It may be positioned to the front, back or either side to accommodate patient access. A plug (seat cover) comes standard with the chair to convert the seat from a commode chair to a more comfortable wheelchair seat when not toileting or bathing. The footrests are adjustable, allowing the user to sit with their feet well off the ground. This wheelchair supports up to 300-pounds.
Why Should I Buy?
Medical studies conclude that a self-propelled commode and shower chair for the home enables patients to improved mobility and independence. This type of mobility device employs a rigid frame similar to a wheelchair and can fold for storage or transport.1
Independent mobility increases vocational and educational opportunities, reduces dependence on caregivers and family members, and promotes feelings of self-reliance.... For adults, independent mobility is an important aspect of self-esteem and plays a pivotal role in "aging in place." For example, if older people find it increasingly difficult to walk or wheel themselves to the commode, they may do so less often or they may drink less fluid to reduce the frequency of urination.2
