Since its introduction in 1989, our geriatric positioning chair has improved steadily over time. It meets the many needs of patients experiencing loss of autonomy and who are seated for long periods of time. The components of the seat and backrest are the result of an intensely studied design, thus, combined with changes in tilt, acting in a preventive manner against pressure ulcers.
our positioning chairs
A positioning chair that combines comfort and ease of use
Our geriatric positioning chairs can easily be tilted at angles of up to 45 degrees. The backrest of our positioning chairs is fitted with internal elastic bands. The pre-cure seat cushion is made of high-resilience foam and visco gel memory foam. Our Optimum and Comp-Position geriatric chairs contribute to the prevention of pressure ulcers thanks to their exceptional comfort and ease of changing the position.
Safe and constantly evolving products
Our positioning chairs are mainly used in hospitals and long-term care centers to help the work of the many medical and care support workers. Their flexibility and ease of use promote safe transfers while helping to reduce the risk of accidents for both caretaker and patient. The seat cushions, backrest, side supports, activity tables and mobility sets are some of the many accessories and options available for our positioning chairs. These are available in widths ranging from 45 to 60 cm (17 to 24 in) and can accommodate patients weighing up to 450 lbs.
