The Role of Specialist Seating in Promoting Comfort

One of the most common requests we hear from customers is: “I want to be comfortable”.

This seems like such an easy goal to achieve but everyone has their own ideas on what being comfortable actually means. To some it could mean feeling safe, to others it could mean feeling content, to those using other specialist equipment it could mean the opportunity for some freedom, and to those who experience pain it could mean finally being able to relax. 

When specialist seating systems are used appropriately, and are tailored to the individual, quality of life can be significantly improved.

CareFlex specialist seating systems offer many functions and accessories that promote comfort. Back angle recline can open up the hip angle for a more relaxed position, tilt-in-space can manage energy levels, and a waterfall back can securely support the client within the chair.
