Therapeutic seating

Arjo® introduces the Seating Matters™ portfolio of clinical, therapeutic seating solutions to enable prevention and healing to occur throughout the day. The range of therapeutic seating options have been designed to provide increased mobility, proper postural support and aid in the prevention of pressure injury and falls.

The full range of therapeutic seating has been designed so every resident contact surface — from the cushion to the cover — focuses on pressure injury prevention and pressure redistribution. By having a tilt in space feature that allows for 45 degree that maximizes the potential for significant blood flow increases and pressure reduction.

Infection control:
Each chair has been specifically designed to decrease entrapment areas where bacteria and germs can survive. Some of the chair’s features, which help prevent the spread of infections:

  • Easily cleaned -The seat cushion, electric components, and chairs frame are removable for ease of cleaning
  • No Velcro -The seat cushion is attached to the base of the chair with a nonslip, wipeable material.
Falls Prevention:
Seating Matters is designed to reduce sliding and falls for patients with involuntary movements and low mobility. Providing correct support, safety tilt and loading the body correctly reduces sliding ensuring optimal security while reducing the need for restraints while seated.
