We’re asked a lot about the best way to move patients from one of our chairs to a bed or wheelchair. While it’s important to note that every patient is different and should only be moved following a thorough assessment of their needs, there are some general principles that should be followed in most cases.

Welcome to another issue of Inside Recliners – we hope you’ve had a great summer and managed to get out in the sun over the Bank Holiday Weekend. It’s been another busy month here in the workshop and we’ve had a lot of interest in our latest model, the Multi-Care Plus after we announced it here last month. See what all the fuss is about here.
Whether at home or at work, a great number of people spend a significant portion of their daily lives sitting down. It can come as a shock then to learn that many of the seats and sofas we use every day are unsafe. Not only that, certain chairs, both in the office and in the house, are having a negative impact on our bodies, creating problems with balance, flexibility and posture that may be felt immediately or in later life.
Being seated for a large portion of the day can put a huge amount of stress on the lower half of the body, leaving 19% of our total weight on our legs and feet. With all that pressure, it’s important to make sure our sitting position is not only comfortable, but also promotes healthy joints and muscles.
