The Leckey Bath Chair can be adjusted in height to allow for a range of positions from flat in the bath to over bath height. The height is adjusted by pulling down on both sets of levers (a) and adjusting the front and back legs to the required position. Once the required position is obtained simply release the levers (a).
For stability reasons we do not recommend that both sets of legs be adjusted to their highest position at the same time.
When adjusting the bath chair into any position please ensure the locking pin has engaged fully.
Tilt in space
The independent height adjustability of the Leckey Bath Chair front and back legs allows the seat to be adjusted for a range of tilt in space positions. These adjustments are carried out in the exact same way as the height adjustment described above.
Always check with your therapist that the use of tilt in space will not cause any obstructions to the child’s airways.
Back recline adjustment
The back recline of the Leckey Bath Chair can be adjusted to four positions from horizontal to 90 degrees. The back recline is adjusted by pulling the lever, moving to the required position and then releasing the lever, ensuring it slots back into position. When adjusting the bath chair into any position ensure the locking pin is fully engaged.
Calf support adjustment
The calf support can be adjusted into four positions by pulling down on the levers (a), moving to the required position and then releasing the lever into position.
Chest belt adjustment
To position the foam pads under the user’s armpit, while looping the strap around the back of the frame and secure with Velcro at the front as shown. The lateral supports can also be positioned out of the way at the back of the seat if the user does not require this level of support.
Abduction strap adjustment
Once the abduction strap has been attached the legs are then positioned and secured by the smaller Velcro straps.
