The Sorrento is effective in seating clients with the following postural and medical conditions:
- Pressure ulcers
- Joint contractures
- Post-operative rehabilitation needs
- Low muscle tone
With its adaptability and effortless adjustability, the Sorrento lends itself easily to multi-user environments where the seating needs differ between users. The Sorrento can be readjusted to suit the needs of a new user meaning their comfort, posture and pressure management remain uncompromised.
Tilt in space can be used to improve posture and redistribute pressure. This can also be converted to include forward tilt for rehabilitation or in self-transferring situations. The adjustable back recline will accommodate users with limited hip flexion and when used in combination with tilt in space it can prevent sliding from the chair.
Optional lateral supports and supportive pillows can help to maintain or improve posture and facilitate functional ability in activities of daily living such as eating and communicating. The correct use of these features and accessories can also reduce common problems such as falling to the side when seated.
The Sorrento is also very effective for adults with the following disabilities and conditions:
- Cerebral palsy
- Spinal cord injury
- Head injury
- Multiple sclerosis
- Parkinson’s disease
- Motor neurone disease
- Alzheimer’s disease
