Occupational Therapy Specialist Seating Chairs
Each person has their preference for the kind of chair that they like to sit in. Our height and weight are just two factors that need to be taken into consideration to achieve optimal comfort. For those that are undergoing occupational therapy, a chair means so much more and requires a great deal more consideration.
While fully functional people can change seating as they please or move or adjust their position, those with mobility issues, or who are confined to just one chair all day unless they are assisted must have their personal needs catered to.
Specialist Seating for Occupational Therapy Patients
At Seating Matters, we are occupational therapy specialists that have three decades of world-class knowledge under our belts. We look at a chair and see the potential that it has for patients of this nature, instead of viewing it as just a piece of furniture. Over the past few decades, we have worked tirelessly to realise a series of chairs that are tailor-made to address the common and secondary complications and problems that are so often experienced by those in occupational therapy.
What You Can Expect from Our Superior occupational therapy Chair Solutions
One of the most important aspects of any specialist seating solutions for occupational therapy is that it is easy to use. While there are plenty of chairs on the market that have one or more features that help promote a better standard of accessibility, we seek to encompass everything a person will need into one exceptional product.
Push handles, swivel castors, removable arms, patient lift accessibility and forward tilt are just some of the features that come as standard that ensure your patients a more comfortable experience. What’s more, all of our chairs can be adjusted without necessitating the use of tools within a minute. We consider the needs of the patient as well as the needs of the caregiver. Ultimately, a seat that is difficult to use hampers both the comfort of the patient and the ability of the carer to do their work to the best of their ability.
Our Occupational Therapy Chair Designed to Deliver Highest Standards
Here at Seating Matters, great design means little to us unless it can pass the stringent testing process that we put each of our products through. We have invested in an in-house testing facility that affords us the chance to control the quality of our seating solutions. We replicate the use of all chairs over a 10-year life cycle, undertaking rigorous testing to ensure that once one of our products leaves the facility, it is built to last and deliver the highest standards achievable.
Our confidence in the occupational therapy chair solutions that we manufacture is such that each one comes with a 7-year frame warranty. We want our customers to be comfortable, but we also want them to have the peace of mind that their chair is reliable, durable and will provide them with years of comfort.
