See why people love the Configura Advance
Assistant Director of Rehab
“We love the ease of adjusting it, as some of us are mechanically challenged!”
Director of Nursing
“Our occupational therapists are overjoyed with the functionality of this chair, where you can make it wider and deeper. I love the waterfall pillow piece. The way that you can take those pillows off and kind of wedge them, there's no pressure on the spine. I literally have not seen anything like it.”
Director of Rehab
“Other chairs we have used aren’t as soft and cushioned as Accora”
Director of Rehab
“I have so much control over the positioning of my residents, I can really help them, and they love it so much.”
Principal Occupational Therapist
“The Configura Advance has been wonderful for residents that need alternate positioning due to wound management or fracture management. Chairs we’ve used previously weren't as comfortable, workable or accommodating.”
Frequently Asked Questions
Why is the Configura Advance so comfortable?
The four-way stretch material throughout the chair allows the resident to immerse into the cushions thus redistributing pressure to all areas of their body providing incredible comfort and reduced pressure.
Can the Configura Advance chair positions be changed?
Yes, it reclines up to 130 degrees and tilts 0-37 degrees.
Do the legs elevate?
Yes, using BodyMove™ technology to ensure an outward and upward motion, thereby preventing the knees from scrunching up which is uncomfortable. Also, there are no gaps between the legs and support is provided beneath each knee preventing achy knees.
Can a specialty seat cushion be used with the Configura Advance?
Yes, any preferred cushion 16”x16” or 17”x17” with a 3” depth can be inserted into the well of our amazing cushion.

Do you offer plantar and dorsiflexion on the footplate?
Yes, there are three angles of adjustment to accommodate this.
Can the footplate be removed?
Yes, easily for a taller resident or if a sit to stand lift is to be used.
What if I have a shorter resident?
To provide support to the feet of a vertically challenged resident, the footplate can be raised and/or lowered. It can also be angled to provide plantar or dorsiflexion when needed.
