Good Seating Guide

Are you sitting comfortably?

To ensure good posture, pressure area care, as well as comfort, it is important to have a correctly fitted chair and cushion. 

Renray offers great technical and clinical expertise which ensures that our products not only look good, but are specially designed for comfort, durability and long term performance.

The Renray Elite Patient Chair Range is specifically designed using anthropometric data, produced in a full range of sizes, providing a good sitting posture and pressure area care.

Too wide    Seat too low          Seat too long

Seat too wide

Offers no support or stability, the body tends to lean to one side, putting pressure on ischial tuberosities.

Seat too low

An individual’s body weight is supported on a small area, leading to high pressures under the coccyx and buttocks. Feet pushed forward for stability increases heel pressure.

Seat too short

The body weight is supported on a small area. The feet are used for balance and posture, leading to high pressures and discomfort, especially under the thigh.

Seat too high Seat too narrow Seat too long

Seat too high

Difficult to get into and no support for the feet, leading to ankle deformities and restriction of blood flow at the back on the thigh. Heels are at risk when the patient shuffles forward for comfort.

Seat too narrow

Risk of pressure damage to Trochanters. Difficult to get in and out of the chair due to limited movement.

Seat too long

Causes high pressures, especially on the back of the knees and sacrum due to limited knee and ankle flexion, leading to poor posture.
