Aquatec Orca Bathlift XL Powerful Bath Lifter

Aquatec Orca Bathlift XL Powerful Bath Lifter

The Aquatec Orca XL Bathlift with reclining backrest by Invacare is a popular choice of those looking for a more powerful bathlift that can support heavier users and provide assistance and increased independence when using the bath. The Orca Bathlift XL has an impressive maximum user weight of 170kg (26.5st).  

The Aquatec Orca XL Bathlift is a disability bathing aid for the heavier user that is simple to fit and is designed to provide the user with a comfortable, safe and reassured bathing experience. It 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 and 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 XL 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 XL with reclining backrest is ideal for use at home as well as in a nursing home or care setting. 

Use and Operation

The Orca has a textured seat that can be used without covers (non-slip covers are available separately) and 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. 

The Orca’s lowering and lifting motion is controlled by a simple to use lightweight ergonomic handset that floats. The handset simply connects to the back of the chair and has a powerful integral lightweight battery that is rechargeable and has raised profile coloured buttons and an emergency stop feature.        

The Orca’s smooth surfaces and water drainage design make it is easy to clean and it has an impressive user weight limit of 170kg (26.5 stone)

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.

The backrest can be folded down and fits neatly into the base section that has a carry handle allowing for easy removal, transport or storage. 

These are just some of the reasons why the Aquatec Orca NG Bathlift XL by Invacare is the world’s best-selling bath lifter. 

Colour: White only.
