Combining functionality with aesthetics, Osprey Healthcare has revealed a revolutionary new concept with its Flyta-Active shower chair for active wheelchair users.

Helping change the face of shower chair commodes that were merely functional for clients in the past, Osprey says that its new product design combines the functionality of standard shower chairs with the appearance and comfort of a high-end wheelchair.

The shower chair was designed in response to feedback from active wheelchair users in the community and at exhibitions who specifically asked Osprey for a product that looks more like the active chairs they use on a day to day basis.

Additionally, the users noted that they wanted something less clinical and more dynamic, and Osprey believes the Flyta-Active meets these needs.

A unique product that has not been seen before, notes Osprey, the shower chair comes with two standard seat widths of 17” and 19”. The Flyta-Active is also compatible with the Gebereit Aqua Clean and Geberit Mera toilets.

Having been in development for the last six to nine months, the shower chair is still in the prototype stage, but should be available by late August or early September this year.
