Milano

The Milano provides dignity, pressure care and comfort for people with limited mobility. The Milano has been designed specifically for care facilities to address pressure management, falls prevention, infection control, maintenance of mobility and safe manual handling.

The Milano fits people of all of shapes and sizes through its adjustable seat width, seat depth and foot plate height.

The Milano has high levels of pressure care and has separate tilt in space, recline and an elevating leg rest. These movements provide a clinically effective weight shift for pressure care without transferring the resident from the chair.

The chair is unique as it caters to residents of all mobility levels and transfer methods. This means a person can use the Milano when they can stand independently and continue to do so if they progress to needing a stand up lifter or a full hoist. Many other available chairs do not allow for this option and inhibit a person’s mobility as it declines.

As the Milano provides postural support and pressure care, it enables a person with fluctuating mobility to transfer with assistance when they are able, or the option to transfer using a lifter when they are unwell or fatigued.

For infection control, we’ve used healthcare grade fabrics that are hard wearing, easily cleaned and suitable for delicate skin. The cushions are completely removable so all areas can be easily cleaned and there is no velcro.

The Milano is lightweight and easy to operate. Directional castors and smart design means smaller carers can easily move the chair along hallways and in tight spaces.

Features

The Milano has:

Tilt in space to allow for re-positioning for pressure care and comfort of the user. Elevating leg rest and recline are also standard.

Dartex multi stretch pressure management materials throughout all patient contact surfaces. This material is breathable with moisture permeability to ensure that the surface remains dry and comfortable for the user. This material can be wiped down for infection control and hygiene requirements.

Medium to high pressure management cushion, using memory foam. This cushion is removable for cleaning and if you wish to use a different type. An advantage of our memory foam cushions is they do not require maintenance or adjustment for each person, unlike a gel or air cushion. The cushion is also easily replaceable.

Adjustable seat width, foot plate height and seat depth allows the chair to fit the size and requirements of the user.

A light weight frame with directional castors to allow the chair to be easily pushed in a straight line or moved throughout a small room.
