The Importance of Appropriate Seating

Be independent, be comfortable.

If you are struggling to sit comfortably in your armchair at home we can help.

You may also  or want greater independence to stand and sit safely without the assistance of a relative, carer or friend – this is where one of our tailor-made adjustable chairs can change your life.

With a chair designed specifically for your individual size and needs, we can ensure you remain appropriately supported when sitting or moving in and out of a chair. You can also enjoy sitting or reclining for extended periods of time without the inconvenience of regular readjustment.

If the backrest is not supportive, sacral sitting can happen which results in curvature of the spine forwards, known as Kyphosis. Whilst if your seat is too wide, Scoliosis or curvature of the spine may also occur. These are serious issues and can be further complicated by pelvic rotation, that can develop from continual adjustment of your seated position if the chair is uncomfortable.

With a balanced posture, you can sit for longer periods happily and avoid additional pain, medical issues or becoming bed bound.

Better circulation & rested legs
