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.
The Milano is available in electric or manual operation. The electric version allows the user or carer to operate tilt, recline and leg rest functions using a remote control. The manual version allows the carer to operate tilt, recline and leg rest functions using the smooth and easy gas struts.
