Daily living aids come in all shapes and sizes. Healthcare Equip also includes comfortable seating designed to help the elderly or people living with a disability to live more comfortably. Chairs sold in general retail outlets are manufactured according to the requirements of stronger individuals who do not have to cope with muscle weakness, stiffness, chronic pain and neurological disorders. In this section of the Healthcare Equip catalogue, we have sourced a number of chairs designed for these less mobile individuals.
You will find our selection of interest if you suffer from osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, joint pain, morbid obesity, muscle weakness or pain, mobility issues, balance issues and chronic fatigue syndrome, for example.
Also known as disability chairs, these seating types come with features that enable easy adjustment, simple control and safety when sitting at a desk or table. Orthopaedic design in combination with options only found on expensive design chairs such as castor wheel brakes and seat height adjustment while sitting can make the act of sitting and standing from a seated position less painful with less risk of injury or falls. Further characteristics of a good quality disability chair also include non-slip surfaces, wipe-clean padded or Tempur upholstery, the ability to support heavier weights and sturdy arm supports positioned at the right angle to enable easy exit. Chair legs and castors allow close access to work surfaces and all controls (foot and hand) are ergonomically designed to require the least possible force.
Healthcare Equip also offer a range of disability chairs without electronic function for living areas. These extremely comfortable seating options for disabled or elderly customers make it a pleasure to sit back and relax without worrying about a struggle to stand up later on due to tested seat heights rarely found in generic furnishings. Many of our disability chairs are available for short or long-term rental – a service many Healthcare Equip clients use prior to final purchase as they can take the time to find out which chair best suits their needs.
