Stroke Rehabilitation Chairs
We live in an age that has made considerable medical advancements that improve the quality of life for those who experience a stroke. While there is no question that such an event has a huge impact on the life of the individual as well as their family, in the wake of the occurrence what should become clear is that with appropriate support structures in place things can be managed as the recovery begins.
The Ideal Rehabilitation Chairs for Stroke Patients
A stroke chair is a key piece of equipment that is crucial to promoting beneficial physical behaviour and limiting the risk of complications.
Here at Seating Matters, we believe that the patient and its caregivers should always seek out products that give the body the best chance of recovery. We are here to help you solve the issue of appropriate seating. Our chairs are backed by clinical evidence that was gained from a research study carried out over 2-years by the University of Ulster.
Why Seating Solutions are a Key Consideration During Rehabilitation
As the recovery process begins, stroke patients and those charged with their care should look for a stroke rehab chair that promotes the highest standard quality of life. There are many complications connected to a stroke and so, while the mind comes to terms with what happened and comes around to the changes that need to be made, it is important that the physical body is not ignored and that proper supports are in place from as early as is appropriate.
The reality for many stroke patients is that they will have little or limited ability to adjust their seating position throughout the day. A caregiver must keep an eye out for any signs that the body is reacting negatively to being in a sustained position as a result of the pressure felt. Something that starts out small can develop rapidly and create additional problems, so the chair used must provide as much relief as possible.
At Seating Matters, we recognise that even for carers, the process of safely and comfortably moving a patient in their seat can be challenging. As such, we developed our chairs to incorporate features that make the process as simple and unintrusive as possible.
We seek to provide solutions that are beneficial to both the patient and carer, so the presence of visco-elastic memory foam combined with Dartex multi-stretch breathable fabric, tilt in space, recline and elevating leg rest, push handle, swivel castors and removable arms help you to achieve more, and your patient to benefit physically as a result.
We Set the Benchmark for Quality Supportive Seating
Here at Seating Matters, our rehabilitation chairs have been developed over three decades. We don’t release a new product to any of our clients until it has passed our high-quality manufacturing standards and meets the requirements set in our stringent testing process. We don’t just sell the best chairs, we provide you with a piece of equipment that you can feel fully confident in.
A stroke chair can make a world of difference to the patient and can promote a faster route to recovery. It makes caregiving that little bit easier and more manageable, and it achieves a standard of comfort and dignity that is unsurpassed in the market. We encourage you to inquire about a free seating assessment today.
