The Aquatec Orca Bathlift by Invacare is a popular choice of those looking for assistance and increased independence when using the bath but at an affordable price. The Orca Bathlift is a disability bathing aid that is simple to fit and designed to provide the user with a comfortable, safe and reassured bathing experience.
The Aquatec Orca Bathlift fits neatly and securely into the bath and its strong seating platform and electronic scissor mechanism enable the user to simply and safely transfer onto the bath chair. The user can then effortlessly lower themselves down into the bath using the ergonomically designed floating hand control. The bath seat can then be raised back up to the edge of the bath assisting the user with a safe transfer to their feet.
Whilst the Orca Bathlift is simple to use and install it comes with a number of innovative features that combine to deliver an all-round pleasurable and safe bathing experience.
The Orca Bathlift is ideal for use at home as well as in a nursing home or care setting.
Use and Operation
The Orca’s seat has a textured surface making it suitable for use without a cover (non-slip covers are available separately) and has hinged side flaps that extend to the bath rim thereby assisting safe side transfers in and out of the seat.
The Orca’s backrest reclines up to an angle of 40° for additional comfort, relaxation and improved bathing experience (fixed backrest option also available).
The Orca’s lowering and lifting motion is controlled by a simple to use lightweight ergonomic handset. The handset floats and has a powerful integral rechargeable lightweight battery, raised profile coloured buttons and an emergency stop feature.
The Orca’s smooth surfaces with water drainage design make it is easy to clean.
Installation and Disassembly
The Orca comes in two parts. The base section fits securely to the bottom of the bath using large oyster suction cups that give exceptional stability and safety even to steeply curved and textured baths. The backrest section simply locks into the bottom section.
For easy removal, transport or storage the backrest can be folded down and fits neatly into the base section that has a carry handle.
These are just some of the reasons why the Aquatec Orca Bathlift with reclining backrest by Invacare is the world’s best-selling bath lifter.
Colours: White or Blue covers supplied as standard.
