The SERTAIN™ chair is CareMed Alrick’s favourite product here in the UK. It is often said that once you lie a patient flat, it is much harder to encourage early mobilisation. This chair, whilst able to lay the patient 100% flat if necessary, allows for early mobilisation – as it is, in effect, a chair. The SERTAIN™ was designed in conjunction with Critical Care, Trauma and Rehab Professionals, as a platform for both care and early mobility.
Whilst the SERTAIN™ really made a name for itself in ICU, it has now found itself in many other departments within a hospital –now being used widely in OT, chest and respiratory rehab, physio and wards where rehab is critical.
The chair is perfect for reducing manual handling of a patient – making it less stressful for both patients and healthcare professionals. It is one of the most versatile seating choices around with its lay flat feature, particularly useful in critical care when early mobilisation and comfort are critical factors.
Added to that the chair has pressure care surfaces throughout, offering high levels of comfort and pressure relief. The armrests are removable and the wings can be folded away quickly when lying the patient flat, making it easier to intubate. The electric hi-lo on the chair means the chair can rise to a maximum seat height of 780mm, eliminating back strain on the healthcare professional.
Our SERTAIN™ chair for neuro-intensive care
Sertain also make a neuro chair, which is an advanced version of the IC&TC chair. By adding thoracic supports and therapeutic pressure it enhances the function further for complex neuro and neuro-rehabilitation patients.
The chair eliminates the need for hoist transfers by pat-sliding from bed to chair – which is especially appropriate with spinal patients. Added to that you can safely, quickly and easily mobilise and sit up your neuro critical care and trauma patients when necessary.
With all the features of the IC&TC chair, it can also be configured up to 96cm (36″) wide.
