Rising above all other powerchairs, the F290 takes you from sitting or lying in a upright position with a stop/start movement that you control. With a supporting chest strap and knee brace to give total security and comfort, you can even drive safely in a standing position, confident that you will remain stable.
When the F290 begins to move to a standing position, the supporting castors will automatically power down when the surface is level. If the surface is uneven, the F290 will not continue which ensures you only stand when it is safe to do so. When you are ready to return to your previous position, which the F290 will have cleverly remembered, you simply activate the control.
As well as enabling you to stand, the F290 will raise and lower you while sitting or lying. In addition you can tilt forward and back, giving you a greater range of positions to make everyday life so much easier.
As with all Balder powerchairs, the F290 is incredibly comfortable. Its seat is ergonomically sculpted and upholstered in quality materials while the anti-sheer movement ensures that whatever angle you choose, the back cushion maintains your position and helps reduce friction.
You can adjust the seat, back, foot rests and leg rests independently, while transferring is made easier with flip-up arm rests and an optional swing-away arm for the controller.
The front wheel drive allows you to manoeuvre the chair accurately and because its maximum width is a narrow 640mm, you will have no problem passing through standard household doorways.
