    Contact MNDA. We have a riser recliner chair on loan

    Re the suction machine, don't use it until it is demonstrated - you need to see how to use the catheters


    Love

    Good stuff Kat. I got mine from local disability store. Make sure dad sits in it before you buy and ask for at least 20% off. Dude x

    Yeh Kat , get 2. My sleepover carers chill out in mine. The tipping forward motion is very handy for standing up now, for rollator and being transferred later with Etac patient turner. 1 point with chair just go for control with up & down. You can get ones with 6 buttons on but you can't use 1 handed.Dude x
