Multiple Sclerosis Chairs

Living with Multiple Sclerosis makes daily life an uphill battle. With great care, things can improve, but without the right support structures to complement that care, the ability of caregivers to deliver to the best of their abilities and for patients to feel the comfort that they long for is hampered.

An autoimmune disease of this nature poses many complications that must be managed effectively to prevent secondary issues making matters worse. The presence of a multiple sclerosis chair that was designed to counteract the negative aspects of this condition is the solution that all patients and caregivers benefit from.

Here at Seating Matters, our mission is to create the very best chairs for those that have special needs. Our background in Occupational Therapy affords us 30 years of knowledge, practice and intensive research, all of which is filtered into the incredible chairs that we produce.

A Specialised Support Chair is Essential for MS Patients

The inability to control muscle stiffening and spasming unpredictably creates issues for patients suffering from Multiple Sclerosis, even when they are in a seated position. It is much more likely that they will shift in position, slide or even fall from their chair when improperly supported. Thus, they must have an MS chair that can be adjusted easily to provide them with the safety, security and comfort that they require.

For any care facility or hospital, the wellbeing of the patients must be never in doubt. Naturally, caregivers have many duties to carry out throughout the day, which means that their attention must often stay focused on completing specific tasks for the patient. In the absence of appropriate seating, a sudden spasm could lead to an injury or a fall.

The Multiple Sclerosis Chair That’s Built With the Patient in Mind

At Seating Matters, our chairs are designed to be as easy to use as possible. No tools are required to make an adjustment to the chair and any change can be made in less than a minute. We have designed our chairs to promote good posture, deliver effective pressure management, make mobility and transfers simple for all parties concerned and you can trust that our chairs are appropriate and can be adjusted to the dimensions of the majority of individuals and their needs.

Health and hygiene are a key part of effective care. As such, we have taken measures to prevent the spread of infection. Our chairs are upholstered in a hard-wearing, enduring contract vinyl that is proven to counteract MRSA, C.Difficile and E.Coli, as well as the vast majority of bacteria. All electric components are sealed, all parts can be dismantled and hospital-grade cleaning agents are safe to use without causing damage to the fabric.

MS Chair Stringent Testing Backed by a 7-Year Warranty

We guarantee high-quality manufacturing standards and that stringent testing has been carried out before any chair leaves our facility. This affords you absolute confidence that your care chair is built for the purpose you bought it for.

We even back it with an unparalleled 7-year frame warranty. Our dedication to continuing to be the benchmark for all other care chairs is backed by clinical evidence that our chairs can help to prevent pressure injuries and sores.

At Seating Matters, we encourage those that are searching for an effective Multiple Sclerosis chair to contact us today and enquire about booking a free chair trial. We also provide free seating assessments to determine the best chair for the patient that you are caring for. Rest assured, once seated in our chairs, your patient will experience the comfort they need and find the dignity that they deserve.
