Choosing the Right Specialist Seating
When choosing supportive seating, it can be difficult to know the chair you need to meet specific patient care needs. With so many options to choose from, it can be easy to be distracted by a product’s low price in the short term and choose a chair that ultimately does not meet long term requirements.
Before settling on a particular product, we always encourage people to think long term, explore their options and take as much time as possible to understand the chair they need. Often opting for the cheapest option at face value is the most expensive option in the long run due to lack of quality, not meeting patient needs and limited adaptability.
Below are our 5 key tips to ensure improved comfort, effective pressure relief, adequate body support and improved chair function from your chosen seating solution:
- Aim for 90/90/90 - All of our chairs are designed to position the hips, knees and ankles at rest at 90 degrees. This allows for maximum chair stability and function.
- Ensure Soft Tissue Protection - Chairs with pressure-relieving cushions and foams and tilt-in-space help prevent pressure-related conditions.
- Maximise Seated Contact Area - The more contact made with the chair’s support surface when seated, the better the stability. This can also be aided by adjusting the chair.
- Promote Symmetry/Neutral Posture - Everyone’s neutral posture is different. Aiming for better chair symmetry will help ensure better posture.
- Protect and Support the Head - Body stability and position will greatly impact head balance and control. The head should be supported only after their pelvis, trunk and lower extremities have been adequately supported.
