Model #285, Tilt-In-Space


This shower commode chair offers the benefits of tilt in space on a Stainless Steel frame designed to accommodate up to 350 pounds.  Multiple features combine to provide support, comfort, and pressure relief along with the other benefits of tilt in space technology.  The patented “Gravity Assist Tilt” mechanism (GAT) affords an easy, low maintenance tilt operation and functions as easy with a 75-pound user as with a person weighing 350 pounds.  The chair height allows over toilet use or can be used with an anti-spill bucket making this chair a versatile answer for home or institutional use.

Please Note: As of April 1, 2014 all 285/20 (20″ seat width) will come standard with  the Comfortuff™ style seat. And as of May 5th, 2014 the 285/18 (18″ seat width) will also be Comfortuff™ style as STANDARD.
