NHS Chairs For The Elderly

For many older people, particularly those in NHS and private healthcare, sitting down for prolonged periods can quickly become uncomfortable, causing pain and stiffness, and in some cases, resulting in pressure sores. Simple tasks that most of us take for granted such as sitting and standing can be strenuous and difficult. At Renray, we have produced the Elite chair range with these factors at the forefront of its design and manufacture.

Developed with the elderly patient’s comfort and wellbeing in mind, the Elite patient chair range has been designed using anthropometric data to ensure a good sitting posture is maintained by analysing 13 critical dimensions. These 13 dimensions are included in each chair size that makes up the Elite range. You can find out more about good seating and posture in the NHS Good Seating Guide here.

Available in a variety of fabrics and finishes and winged and wing-less versions, the Elite patient seating range ensures we can offer the perfect seating solution to suit your elderly patient's needs. High back chairs with adjustable arm height, such as the Elite range, can ensure the elderly maintain their independence for longer by helping to reduce the likelihood of falls via the Elite chair ranges enhanced stability. The availability of small, medium, large and extra-large sizing options ensures a perfect fit for all patients.
