Are You Sitting Comfortably?
Drive DeVilbiss Healthcare supply a wide range of seating solutions for use at home or in care environments, providing optimal comfort and support for users and carers alike.
Choosing the right seating can have a significant impact on your physical wellbeing, especially for individuals who spend extended periods sitting down. Drive DeVilbiss Healthcare offer various options to suit individual needs and preferences. Here are some criteria to consider when selecting seating products;
Upper Body Support - High back chairs provide excellent support for your upper back, shoulders and neck. They help maintain good posture and reduce strain on your muscles and joints. Removable and adjustable head rests can provide additional support to the neck area.
Lumbar Support - Lumbar support is essential for those who require lower back support. This type of seating solution can come in the form of cushions or chairs with built-in lumbar support.
Size Matters - Consider the seat width, height and depth, alongside firmness of the cushion when assessing whether the seat will help promote good posture. A seat that is too wide cannot offer the best support for maintaining an upright position, while a seat that is too narrow may cause pressure issues and the inability to comfortably move around.
Hygiene and Practicality - In communal care environments, where seating is often used by many different people, hygiene, practicality and storage are key considerations. Wipeable upholstery options such as viny and PVC can be easily cleaned and are durable. Removable components also facilitate cleaning, whilst improving the practicalities of storage and transportation of chairs.
Redistributing Pressure - Seat cushions are an excellent option for people who are at risk of developing pressure sores. These cushions are designed to redistribute pressure evenly and reduce the risk of developing pressure ulcers. Dynamic cushions offer increased care with comfort and therapy options that can be tailored to suit specific needs.
Support from Seated to Standing - Chairs may include a variety of features that make them a useful moving and handling aid for both users and carers. Adjustable tilt and seat height assist in raising the user to their feet from the chair, while armrests and a stable base offer stability when in motion.
