” It has been carefully designed to accommodate various body sizes and even has bespoke sizing options”

Manufacturer and supplier of British made riser recliner and fireside chairs, A J Way, recently received a positive review of its bariatric seating solution from Independent Occupational Therapist, Ellie Burcher.

Ellie BurcherThe Waddesdon II is A J Way’s bariatric riser recliner which Ellie says it is a great solution for the needs of many larger clients. Ellie’s Clinical Review reports: “The Waddesdon II is an excellent option for bariatric clients that independently transfer but require assistance rising. It has very good dimensions and avoids the cliché of just being ‘a bigger chair’ all over – it has been carefully designed to accommodate various body sizes and even has bespoke sizing options. The dual motor action is heavy duty and allows you to adjust the position of the chair in accordance with your client’s needs.”

Ellie, who works with the Kirton Healthcare Group to deliver OT training, is a real authority on seating, with years of experience assessing clients of all ages and abilities, including larger individuals whose needs can be more specific. Ellie describes the Waddesdon II as having three top features:

  1. Rise assist back opening mechanism – “As the chair rises, the backrest opens out allowing more room to stand – a great unique feature.”
  2. 40 stone weight limit – “This covers a good majority of bariatric clients.”
  3. Dual motor legrest – “The legrest supports clients with very heavy legs, something I’m seeing more and more of and many other manufacturers overlook.”
