Clinical chairs are designed to provide maximum comfort and support for patients and also provide a number of benefits to the HCP too. They have a number of features that make them ideal for use in hospital settings, which include:
- Adjustability: Clinical chairs are typically very adjustable, both in terms of height and tilt, allowing users to find the perfect position for their comfort and needs. This is important for patients who may currently have mobility issues or who need to be in a specific position for medical procedures.
- Durability: Clinical chairs are made from durable materials that can withstand heavy use. This is important in a hospital where chairs will be used by a variety of people and may be exposed to spills or other hazards.
- Hygiene: Clinical chairs are designed to be easy to clean, which is important in a hospital setting where infection control is a priority. Many clinical chairs have removable covers that can be washed in a washing machine, and some chairs even have antimicrobial surfaces that help to prevent the spread of germs.
- Comfort: Clinical chairs are designed to be comfortable for both patients and caregivers. They often have padded seats and backs, and some chairs even have built-in massage features.
- Confidence and independence: Clinical chairs can encourage patients to be more independent - making it far easier for them to perform tasks such as eating, dressing, and bathing than they would from a bed. This can help to improve patients' quality of life and is a great way to encourage early mobilisation.
- Moving and handling: clinical chairs are built with manual handling in mind. With height adjustable features and the opportunity to tilt the chair, an HCP has to bend and stretch less and find themselves in awkward lifting positions.
- Relaxation: clinical and treatment chairs can help to enhance relaxation by providing a comfortable and supportive environment for a patient. This can help to reduce stress and anxiety, and can also improve sleep quality
- Reduced risk of falls: Clinical chairs can help to reduce the risk of falls by providing a stable base of support. This is important for patients who are at risk of falls due to age, illness, or medication use.
