The Harmony Porta is a manually operated rise and recline chair with tilt in space action. It is designed for people who are not able to operate a remote controlled recliner. A carer, friend or family member can operate the manual controls at the sides and at the back of the chair to lift the leg rest independently, move the footplate and recline the chair by various degrees. By pulling the back handle a carer can very quickly tilt the user to raise their feet above their head as required. The seat also rises and inclines forward to help the user get up more easily. The chair is on wheels and has a safety brake so it's easy and safe to move around the house from room to room if desired.
This chair is available in a range of seat widths - please go to the drop down box to make your choice. It comes in a choice of colours. Please call our Customer Services Department on 01865 339366 to order your free set of swatches.

How to choose the correct size chair
There are 4 measurements you will need to assess which chair is right
- Seat Height
- Seat Depth
- Seat Width
- User Weight
How to measure Seat Height
Measure the distance from the floor to the crease at the back of the knees. Choose a chair that is not smaller than this measurement. Always go to the closest height above your measurement to ensure comfort.
How to measure Seat Depth
Measure the distance from the back of the hips, along the thighs to approximately 4cm above the back of the knees. When seated you should be able to place 2 fingers between the edge of the seat and the back of the knee.åÊ
How to measure Seat Width
TheåÊcorrect seat width should be the width of the user's hips plus 2cm gap on either side. This should ensure arms sit comfortably on the arm rests and that the chair is neither too wide or too narrow.
It is important to choose a chair that is suitable for your weight. The motor that lifts you to standing and lowers you to seated has been tested to lift a maximum weight. This weight is stated in the specification of all the chairs as the 'Maximum user weight'. Using a chair that is not suitable for your weight can invalidate the warranty.
If you have back problems an assessment by a healthcare professional is advised before you purchase a chair.
