Comfortable Electric Motorised Chairs For Elderly & Disabled Adults

Those on the frontline of caregiving gain a window into just how challenging life can become for the elderly and those that have disabilities. The things that we take for granted only become apparent to us when we see the impact that something small can have on the happiness and wellbeing of others.

Chairs for the disabled & elderly, therefore, require a great deal more consideration and thought, compared to those that we are all so used to in our daily lives. Finding a chair that has the needs of those with special requirements at heart can be tough, but fortunately here in Australia, there are options.

Incredibly Supportive Chairs for the Disabled & Elderly

At Seating Matters, we are the industry leaders with regards to chairs for disabled adults. We are at the forefront of innovation and research and even though our products have clinical evidence that backs the claims that we make, we continue to develop and refine. We have over 30 years of experience in occupational therapy and have achieved the benchmark for quality.

We take careful consideration at each step of our processes and our entire team are committed to meticulous attention to detail as well as the highest standards of manufacturing. Testing is a key component of what we do to ensure that our chairs for elderly disabled patients achieve greater results and provide a sense of confidence, comfort and dignity.

How Comfortable Chairs Promote Better Living Standards

Those who work in care and tend to the needs of patients likely appreciate the importance of appropriate seating for anyone with a disability, or who is of advanced age and requires support. There are so many different injuries and problems that can be avoided simply by changing the chairs used for the elderly.

A great chair should help them to maintain mobility first and foremost, which is crucial in many different ways. Community living and social interaction are limited when a patient has poor mobility, which can lead to depression and a sense of isolation from the world they are a part of. This is especially important for those in nursing homes whose families may only be able to visit irregularly.

Comfortable chairs for the elderly should also promote good posture, which will reduce the chances of pain developing as a result of a lack of support. However, it is also worth bearing in mind that where a chair fails to achieve an optimised posture, this puts the patient at risk. They will feel insecure and unsafe, particularly if they start to slide or if they fall from the chair.

Here at Seating Matters, we appreciate that comfort reduces the possibility of agitation and the development of sores and other injuries or wounds. Our chairs are designed to prevent the possibility of infections spreading, but they also may help reduce pressure injuries and sores. Comfort is key to happy living.

What’s more, an electric chair for disabled patients makes it possible for them to maintain a degree of independence that is appropriate, and it also affords their caregivers ease of use and the ability to adapt quickly to the needs of those in their care.
